Tipster Of The Week: Bring Your LC-A To School!

2009-03-01 6

It was something of a tool conceived in St. Petersburg in the 1980’s that is meant to provide the masses a compact and reliable workhorse for everyday photography. Through those years, it endured the ever changing tastes of each generation passed and many times its existence was challenged and almost discontinued. Indeed time went fast, now our beloved LCA is already 25! yay! And what many ways there is to treat our little automatic amigo? Well, let’s start with this one!

BRING YOUR LC-A TO SCHOOL! by nakolb

Who says schools is just for learning??? Take as many pictures as you can so when you are old, and depressed you can look back on the good times of high-school you had with your friends!! Capture even more memories by taking doubles as well!!

Shoot the hallway, splash the cafeteria with a pink flash or double exposed your seatmate’s face! whatever that is you do, the LCA will be more than delighted as you make him remember how he was once young and was still afraid of growing up. Nakolb gave his LCA something truly sentimental to see on his 25th, congratulations!

So how will you treat your LCA? with a birthday cake? or perhaps a trip to the Arctic? I’ll be more than happy to know if you can also submit tips of any kind here.

    The Art of Picture Taking: An Interview with Filmmaker Catherine Dauphin

We spoke with Luxembourg-based filmmaker Catherine Dauphin about her thoughts on this wonderful art form. Join us as she answers some of our questions about film, photography, and her short film titled "The Art of Picture Taking."
