Lomography Recap: September 2012

A band once sang, "Wake me up when September ends" but how could one sleep through all of these great reads? Here's the September installment of our yearend editorial recap.

Top Photos for September 2012

What better way to wake your spirits up than with these brilliant and inspiring shots? Here are the top photos for the month of September.

News

It’s the month of the most, as some of our September news highlights cover the world’s most viewed photo, the “most expensive lens”, and other superlatively superb feats like Noah Kalina’s now-12-year-old Everyday project, and this historic and unforgettable photo of the burning monk by Malcolm Browne.

September also spells the annual Photokina event in Cologne, Germany and we’re proud to have been in the thick of it and bring to the community news updates such as Rollei’s new medium-format releases, and Lomography’s own giant lomomap.

On the other hand, the projects and series of various photographers have gotten more exposure to the community like the All I Own series by Sanna Kvist, and these series of self-portraits.

Lifestyle

Over at the Lifestyle section, we expressed how expired is not always a bad thing, and that the results of our Sunset Strip are not bad when cross-processed with E-6. We gave a little sneak peek and teaser for our booth at Photokina, and we were wow-ed by this collection of photo-realistic double exposure paintings, LC-A portraits, toilet paper tube art, and images made out of old keyboard keys.

Reviews

In the world of analogue photography, having a trusty SLR is always a plus. And there are a lot of models to choose from too, like the Minolta 110 Zoom SLR, and the Praktica MTL3, among the other more popular standbys.

But that is not to say that point-and-shoots like the panoramic and subquatic Canon Autoboy D5 and the quirky Ricoh Xobbox should be forgotten.

This month, we also took the Bokeh Master’s Kit out for a spin, and we received reviews for the sleek LC-A+ case, the Kodak Ektachrome 64T, and Agfa Vista 100.

Tipsters

The Tipster section is full of September surprises as we had tips that ranged from the simply brilliant to the ones that will make you do a double-take!

Did you know you can your B&W film using a normal flatbed scanner and your tablet PC? How about the basic parts of an SLR? Do you remember? How about the differences between pushing, pulling, and cross-processing? And have you ever gotten the hang of doing doubles?

There are plenty of cool DIY tips of the cameras too, like this brilliant guide that shows you how to make your La Sardina “transparent”, and another that makes sure you don’t accidentally shoot in B-mode in our Diana F+ again! There’s also a guide creating a wonderful literary mask for your bibliophiles out there, and finally, a strap for your Sprocket Rocket!

Locations

Rounding up our September flock are the top locations of the month! We’ve taken a photo op in Lisbon and the old Lx Factory, explored Namsan Seoul Tower, escaped the busy city life and headed to Pulau Ubin, and became victims(!) at the Thieves Market!
