Everdearest Lomographers,

We are truly grateful to continuously receive your analogue-inspired article submissions and we thank you for making Lomography Magazine your online source for anything that’s Lomography, analogue, and even beyond! We are encouraging you even more to submit your pieces and take part in our growing community.

Here on Lomography Magazine, your articles count! And so, every Friday starting tomorrow, we will be highlighting the best user-submitted articles! Your friendly Lomography Magazine editors will pick an Article of the Week for the following sections: Tipster, Reviews (accessories, cameras, and films), Locations, and Analogue Lifestyle.

To be fair and square (and for everyone’s reference), we will base the ‘Articles of the Week’ according to the following criteria:

  • Creativity: interesting and imaginative takes on the old and usual
  • Originality: fresh, different, unconventional
  • Reader Response: if our readers loved it, you deserve an extra merit!
  • Relevance: timely and engaging stuff that the community will enjoy (i.e. requested posts)
  • Overall Quality: cohesive paragraphs, grammatically sound, reader-friendly

Aside from re-featuring your article on the Magazine, users who will bag the ‘Article of the Week’ will receive 10 Piggies each! Now, isn’t that fancy? So, LomoBoys and LomoGirls, what are you waiting for? Keep those analogue articles coming!

Thank you,
_Erin_

PS: There are other ways to contribute to Lomography Magazine! Submit requested posts or if you have more analogue ideas that could be put into a series, become a regular contributor!

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
