Facebook Timeline - Perfect for Horizon Shots

5

A couple of weeks ago Facebook unveiled their new feature called “Timeline”. With this feature Facebook is turning your profile into an interactive resumé.

Some might say this is a new way to collect more personal data from the Facebook users, which might be true. But I don‘t want to discuss this here in the article.

I want to talk about something else. I have to admit the first thing that came up to my mind was not a privacy concern. The first thing that came to my mind was: The cover photo is the perfect place to showcase some of my favorite Horizon shots.

Horizon shots – perfect for the new Facebook Timeline

And I was not the only LomoNerd that had this idea while seeing the dimensions of the new design. Lots of lucky Horizon owners and friends on Facebook used this place to upload their favorite Horizon shots. But as cool as it might be, I think our Lomowall feature at Lomography.com is way better and gives you more creative freedom.

What do you think about the new design and which is better the Facebook Coverphoto or our Lomowall feature?

    If you like Lomowalls that much, Print Screen is your best buddy! Just make a screenshot of your lomowalls and voilá, there's your new cover photo

    Photographic Pairs

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
