Nothing lasts forever. Things change. Some for the better, others for the worse. Here is an important announcement regarding the famous ‘10 Golden Rules’. This groundbreaking news might just shake the foundation in which the Lomographic Society International stands for.

Due to an ongoing legal battle caused by unfortunate accidents whilst shooting, we are changing The Ten Golden Rules’ rule #6. With the old one being Don’t think… The heads at Lomography have decided to replace the old one with the new rule:

Rule #6: Think a little, and then shoot!

And in addition to this, the 10th golden rule – Don’t worry about any rules, has also been changed:

Rule #10: Worry about some rules.

The changes were inevitable, with the safety of our loyal lomagraphers in mind, we had no choice but to modify the rules that we have been following (or not following) for years. We hope you understand and accept these updates. May it also become part of your life, the way you’ve embraced the original golden rules. Thank you and keep on shooting! The future is analogue!

Here is the link to the new, updated 10 Golden Rules of Lomography

    I'd like to add rule #11, any image by a lomographer who's handle/nickname begins with 'A' or 'a' automatically wins piggies for all lomographs uploaded to the site.

    On the contrary, the more I try to not follow (or follow!) the rules, my Diana just goes with her own ways. I tell you, these cameras have a mind of their own. And I'm glad that they do!
