Double Up For Valentine Day

Cupid has just stung us with his arrows of love and we have to share it with you! In the real world you may have found your soul mate and we are sure that you will just have the most romantic time together come February 14th! But you are also part of one of the most exciting, diverse and creative communities on the whole world wide web!

Cupid has just stung us with his arrows of love and we have to share it with you! In the real world you may have found your soul mate and we are sure that you will just have the most romantic time together come February 14th! But you are also part of one of the most exciting, diverse and creative communities on the whole world wide web!

Thats why this year we want you to pick your own Lomo Valentine! (This is not cheating btw!) We know that you Lomo guys have had your eyes on some of the pretty Lomo girls out there and that some of you Lomo ladies just digg the way some of our Lomo gentlemen move with their cameras! Valentines should not only be about couples either and we value your friendships as well. Either way its time for you to get together and bring your friendship to a whole new level! But lets keep it analogue shall we? And what’s more analogue than doubles?

The way this works is the following:

  • Ask someone “out” (does not have to be boy/girl)
  • Shot a roll of film of yourself with a romantic surrounding
  • Send the roll to your valentine who then shots the second layer of themselves in a romantic setting
  • You will be united on your negatives :)
  • Once you are done – send Lucas an email (lucas.jakobsson@lomography.com) with your pictures

Of course we got some prizes in hand for our newly found sweethearts! The best doubles will each be shipped the newest Diana F+ clone Mr.Pink

Will you be my valentine?

    Cool Idea... To bad I have absolutely no time for shooting lately and already 2 doubles pending...
    I have a question reguarding the doubles though... I tried a few times to submit a blog entry for "doubles with you" but it won't work out... Any clue about what I'm doing wrong? Or is it a bug from the beta??

    "Ask someone “out” (does not have to be boy/girl)" Not a boy or a girl? Whats left then? I like the idea of this rumble!
