The Great LC-A and LC-A+ Masters

What do you get when you give a legendary camera to a Lomography master?

We are no strangers to the unmatched capability of the legendary LC-A and its successor, the now well-loved LC-A+, in producing brilliant lomographs. Although these cameras are already packed with great shooting features, it takes a great deal of creativity and experimentation to come up with truly unforgettable and timeless LC-A snapshots. When placed in the hands of lomography masters, the LC-A and LC-A+ can produce photographs that go beyond the signature saturated colors, great contrasts, and shadowy vignettes.

It was indeed a one tough act but we managed to pull it off. We are proud to give you ten of the most revered Community members when it comes to artfully shooting with the Lomo LC-A and the Lomo LC-A+!

hodachrome from Gifu, Japan

What to expect: Use of elaborate techniques such as EBS (exposing both sides) and multiple exposures

ccwu from Taipei, Taiwan

What to expect: Evocative portraits

grazie from United States

What to expect: Cityscapes and street scenes

fruchtzwerg_hh from Berlin, Germany

What to expect: Pop of colors from cross processed and redscale films

fotobes from Brighton, United Kingdom

sobetion from Bangkok, Thailand

superlighter from Osimo, Italy

This is not a definitive and exhaustive list and we are sure that the Community has a lot of other talented LC-A and LC-A+ users that are just waiting to be discovered. If you think we missed someone who should have been on this list, kindly hit the comments section below!

    @icequeenubia scootiepye!!! I am stunned that she is not on of this list! I nearly choked on my coffee!! http://www.lomography.com/homes/scootiepye http://www.lomography.com/magazine/lifestyle/2010/06/16/diversity-in-an-analogue-world-the-beauty-by-scootiepye "We all know her pictures. For some, they may even be the images that inspired them to pursue Lomography in the first place. Take a few minutes and digest what one of the oldest Lomographers in the community, scootiepye, has to say about maturing photographically!"

    and you truely deserve to be in, @superlighter ! there are some lomographers from the old days next to the ones i mention in my big five article that made so many visual statements that are still being used, outstanding lomographs that are not just popped out of nothing. so they can also be featured! next to the ones mentioned on top, there are also @neja @wil6ka @vicuna @satomi and many more. 30 years of LC-A cannot be featured with a selection of five or six lomographers. name them, though they might not be active anymore.
