We all have our favourite people and we all have our reasons why we love shooting them on film! So what are you waiting for? Write about them and let the Lomographic world know about their place in your analogue heart!
A year ago, The LomoPeople Series was launched and since then, the Magazine has already featured a number of portraits and descriptions of people — from friends, lovers, to strangers — who are rad, inspiring, and adorable in their own ways.
This series has branched out into our local community sites as well, such as LomoPeople India and LomoPeople Malaysia. And aye — the callout for LomoPeople is still ongoing. However, we would like to tweak a few guidelines for your submissions.
New Submission Guidelines for LomoPeople:
Title: “LomoPeople: NAME” (of the person you are featuring).
1 analogue prorate shot of a single person.
Minimum photo dimensions: at least 768px in either width or height.
Minimum of 200 words.
Accepted/Published submissions get 5 Piggy Points!
(Note: These guidelines will apply to submissions received starting today, 19th August 2011.)
Let us dedicate this series to all the lovely people that we adore taking pictures of! Submit an Analogue Lifestyle piece and tell the Lomographic community why you choose that special someone!
I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.
Aside from having the same passion for photography, Alessia and Alessio also shoot the same camera to document their happy moments together. Let's get to know more about these creative newcomers and their shared LomoHome, alessi_t!
Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
