Russia Day 2012 - Show Us Some Love – Winner Announcement


A few days ago it was 12th June and the end of our massive competition in search of a Lomography Russia Day baby. Unfortunately it looks like no-one has won our grand prize of a Russia family van but we’ve still got 3 scooters to give away! Read on to find out if your competition entry has earned you a trip down the road to love…

Before we salute our 3 winners, we’d like to thank everyone who took part in our Russia Day 2012 competition and congratulate you all on the fantastic love-themed shots which were submitted. We had a great time searching through the entries for the top shots. Unfortunately it looks like there will be no grand prize-winning couple who have had a Russia Day baby born on June12th. But we are still super-excited to be giving away 3 scooter prizes for the best love-themed shots.

So it’s without further a-do that we congratulate our 3 winners matadorenwayne, disdis and tome-vardasca for these shots – We’ll be in touch about getting the prizes to you soon!

     Inspiring and Daring Women in Contemporary Photography (Part I)

    We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.

    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!
