Our featured LomoKino flick of the day is not only entertaining but educational, too!
“Shadow Play” is a work by *maria_vlachou* of Kastoria, Greece that was filmed entirely in black and white using Ilford XP2 films. With the use of shadow puppets, she depicts a well-known tale of Karagiozis, a fictional character of Greek folklore, called “Alexander the Great and the Accursed Snake.” Now, at this day and age, this style is something we definitely don’t see everyda!
Here in the Lomography magazine we often venture to the community’s Movies section, where we’re able to stumble upon shorts that do not only depict interesting storylines but are also well-executed. The new Kino Stories series aims to put the well-deserved spotlight on these gems, so keep those creative juices flowing and tell us your story! Who knows, you just might get featured in an upcoming installment!
Aside from browsing through beautiful photographs and reading interesting articles, hanging out in the shoutbox is another worthwhile activity to do in the community. Not only will you get updated on the the latest news about photography but you’ll also have a chance to share ideas, tips, and stories with fellow shutterbugs across the globe. The shoutbox is always brimming with entertaining conversation and it's all because of these lomographers.
The brighter the sun, the larger the cast of the shadows. Contre-jour, however, does not rely on the shadow, but the figure itself. This photographic technique is used to create stark silhouettes of the subject with the help of direct natural light. Gladly, the Lomographic community has plenty of elegant images in contre-jour. We gathered our favorites.

With exceptional craftsmanship and features, the New Russar+ is indeed a fine piece of photographic gear. It's then only but right to photograph only the best images with this lens. That being said, here are a few tips to help you not only find the appropriate subjects, but also properly frame and capture them.
Keisuke Iguchi documents the world not as a tourist or a photographer but as an experience collector. His upcoming photo book, "Politics is for Losers," tells the stories of the beautiful souls he met throughout a decade-long journey.
Capturing a story through the lens is an easily mastered feat for the photographer. Anyone can tell a story, but not everyone can make up their own. English artist and illustrator Katie Eleanor writes her own stories of fantasy and color with her camera.
Often we find subjects so interesting, we can't help but train our cameras on them. Most of the time the act of snapping a photo goes by uneventfully. But sometimes, a little trouble finds us. Here's one such story by bloomchen.
Fueled by wanderlust, a sense of wonder, and curiosity, lomographers have been through all corners of the world to explore and capture on film everything it has to offer. Lomographers have arguably seen it all—and by all we mean not just the beautiful vistas, but also those places that only the brave ones venture into. Here are but a few of them.
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.
