Hello there! I’d like to show you all what it is that Occupational Therapists (OTs) do on a daily basis.
Some of you might be wondering what an OT is and what we do. Most people are familiar with Physical Therapists or Speech Therapists in hospitals or clinics. I’m not gonna bore you with the specifics, so I’ll just describe what we do in the least technical way I can.
I think the Chinese proverb “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” pretty much sums up what we do. We teach people with disabilities or conditions, such as those who suffered a stroke or who have medical conditions like autism or ADHD ways or strategies to be independent in all areas of their lives. Activities that we take for granted such as dressing, eating, or even going to the toilet is a big challenge for handicapped people – and we as OTs are here to help.
I work mainly with geriatrics and pediatrics in my workplace. Whether it’s teaching my adult patient to relearn how to wear his shirt or write his name to teaching my cute pediatric patients to make friends or perform better at school, I’m very glad to have made a difference in their lives.
What makes an engaging image? What makes a photograph seem more like a memory than just an image? How is it able to make you feel as if you were right there, in that moment, experiencing the scene first hand?

You won't believe what we have in store for you with the launch of our newest mystery product. What a crazy idea, they thought. It can't be done, they said. But at Lomography, we know that there's a first time for everything. So we've decided to travel back in time and have a quick look at some of the unbelievable ‘firsts’ of photographic history. Could these milestones have anything to do with our mystery product?
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

A flash here, a flicker there. An afterimage is an optical illusion and reoccurring phenomenon resulting from a brief exposure to a bright light source, such as a camera flash. What's even more fascinating than experiencing this illusion is discovering that your camera is able to mimic its effect! Check out these mysterious afterimage-like light paintings from our online community.
