It's Tipstember! For this month, we will be awarding 25 fat piggies to every tipster article that gets published on the Lomography Magazine. You can share tips on composition, lighting, film experiments and camera modifications; or maybe techniques for shooting portraits, landscapes, still life and even wildlife! If you don't have tricks up your sleeve, however, you can still contribute to the Magazine and let your voice be heard. Here are some suggestions.
Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.

The paintings of Rembrandt van Rijn and Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio are known for their mastery of brightness and contrast in portraiture or scenery.

Bernhard Rauscher's passion for light painting photography is as vibrant as his creations. His light paintings are either craftily executed renditions of things you see in everyday life, or fanciful abstract figures. He uses do-it-yourself devices made from water bottles and tinsel as light painting tools. Part of his collection of magical devices is the Pixelstick, which he talks about in this exclusive interview.
Toby Mason (aka fotobes) is a Brighton-based photographer who embraces the aesthetics of film photography.
