Turn someone into a Lomographer for a day!

2012-11-13 4

You have the power of lomography in your hands and now is the time to share it with whomever you like: your girlfriend, best friend, grandmother, or if it’s real smart, even your pet. Turn whoever you want into a Lomographer for a day!

Who better than yourself to spread the analog love and share all of your lomographic knowledge? Nobody! This is why we propose you pick the person you want and turn them into a “Lomographer for a day” (or better put “for a film roll”). How?, it’s very simple:

  • Pick a non-lomographer.
  • Lend them one of your favorite cameras loaded with one film.
  • Teach them everything you know and let him/her do the shooting.
  • Take it to the lab and enjoy the analog wait.

When you have the pictures, we all want to see them! So:

  • Make this simple interview to your “Lomographer for a day”, illustrate it with their photos and upload it in the Analogue Lifestyle section of the Magazine.

We’re certain that the amateur views of the non-lomographers will surprise us, look what happened when jandra left an lc-a in the hands of her 4 year old daughter:

Or the case of aroa, who started taking his cameras from his godfather alehopgm and now even has a lomohome, like mini-warning and eduardito.

It was also a non-lomographer who took this picture of their royal highness William and Kate:

And many of the photos in which us lomographers appear are taken by amazing non-lomographers who at the bottom of their heart are wishing to have an analogue camera in their hands.

What do you think of this experiment? Do you already know who are you lending your cameras to?

    Ooh, I've done this. I loaned my Coke Summer Fun Camera to my friend Anni, but I have to keep reminding her that she has it. *eyeroll*
