There’s no doubt about it, we lomographers are eager to learn, hungry for anything and everything that could help us improve our craft and make our analogue life easier. So, it’s safe to say that we’re all doing our part to foster learning in our own little way. The Tipster and Reviews sections are obvious demonstrations of the pleasant exchange of knowledge and information between the community members, but there are also many other gems in the magazine where everyone can learn a thing or two!

The Analogue Reader

Nothing most likely alludes to learning better than books. For analogue readers like myself, of course, nothing beats the experience of drawing knowledge from these perennial symbols of and learning. Therefore, we have this little space in the magazine dedicated to books and reading the analogue way. If you feel like reading something new, check out the installments of this series so far!

Photos on Pages

“A picture paints a thousand words,” a popular song goes, and here in Lomography, we know how perfectly well photos can tell us various stories! So, we have the Photos on Pages series not only to inspire us with the photos taken by well-known photographers, but also to learn about the stories behind some of them.

American Masters

In this series, we pay tribute to some of the world’s most iconic figures in art, literature, and of course, photography! Sometimes, we just need to learn about the lives and works of these historical personalities to make us appreciate their contributions in the modern society we enjoy today.

Lessons from Photography Masters

In this well-received series, we bring you some notable quotes and words of wisdom from the masters of photography themselves, so we can all learn from them and be inspired by their work. If you’re feeling uninspired and unmotivated in your photography, maybe all you need is a quote or two from the likes of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, and Ansel Adams!

Mimicking the Masters

Of course, who doesn’t want to or try to emulate the photographic style and prowess of history’s renowned photographers? In this series, we present some tips for everyone to try, in order to achieve more or less the same results and impact as the masters’ works!

Today in History

Many of us probably disliked history lessons in the past, but in this series, we try to make history as intriguing and relevant to our interests (as lomographers/artists/creatives) as possible. Why don’t you give your history lessons a second chance and read some of our Today in History reports?

Back to Basics

Last but not the least, we also have many regular contributor series from community members like adam_g2000, who have been so generous to impart their technical knowledge and artistic ideas to their fellow lomographers. Back to Basics is just one of them, and if you scour around the Tipster section, you’re sure to find many more of these helpful regular contributor series!
