Mephisto's October Rumble: Month 10 - Top 10


One of the more popular articles for this year was mephisto19’s “Big Five” Lomographers. DO you agree with his selection or do you have one shooter in mind who you think is a perfect fit? Here’s your chance to tell the world!

Credits: mephisto19

A while ago I wrote a blog post about The Big Five five lomographers from “the old days” (or the beginning or however you want to call it) that introduced techniques to the community we all are using now and people asked me “why is XY not in?”. People also asked to make a top 10, 20,…! But that shall be the rumble now!

So write a blog post with your Top 10 (why did you chose those Lomographers?) and post a link to your blog here. I will look through the blogs and the Top three lomographers mentioned will get five piggies each. But also three people who submitted a blog with get five piggies.

So now start thiking of your own top 10…

    You can include every lomographer you want and please write a blog with places 1 to 10!
    The ones mentioned most will also get piggies, as kind of present for being chosen and active...!
    Enjoy the rumble and start writing
    Would be nice to see some sentences why you chose a certain lomographer...

    I have to put them in places 10 to 10?! Oh, that's bad... :( I don't want to do that, I like them for different reasons! Is that a strict rule or can I follow rule #10...?

  11. saidseni

    1 to 10, I meant.

    ... and that's not on the original article "The Big Five"... :(((

    @saidseni it would be good to choose the most mentioned one... and why do you think it is not the original article "the big five"?

    @mephisto19: Hello! What I meant is that your article doesn't go from 1 to 5, there isn't a 1st and a 5th, at least that's what I understood. I wanted to write something like this for a while, it's OK if it doesn't enter the competition. Thanks and lomo on! :)

    For those who haven't made someones 'Top Ten'.
    Your in mine.

  36. welland

    For all of you that haven't been picked, please don't be disheartened. I have written a top ten but who am I to say who is best? I wrote it with more of a mind to show you all some lomographers I like. It does not (sorry guys) make them better than everyone. I have not seen everyones shots so im not qualified to judge. In Lomography, no one is pro, there are no tiers, if you have a camera you can take something that will blow people away. Some are just more consistency and consistency comes with practice, So keep snapping! If you like what you are doing it will come through in the pictures. I would hate for people to start shooting just because they want to be the best or win all the comps. It is about fun and a love for analogue nothing more. Enjoy yourself and you can't go wrong!

    As much as I tried to narrow it down, I cannot come up with ten as there are just far too many amazing artists on this site. No matter who I mentioned, many would be missed and I am not really that big on popularity contests. It is lovely to be named, but I would like to thank every single active lomographer out there for showing me a little piece of your world. Together, we bring the world a little bit closer!
