New Feature Launched - Photomails

2011-02-08 28

A picture sometimes says more than a thousand words. A picture and a thousand words is even better! Without further ado, I give Lomography’s Photomails!

Credits: superlighter

Sometimes leaving a comment isn’t enough. Perhaps you want to say something more private, or share an inside joke. Or it could be that you want your message to be a bit more personalized and not lost down the tubes of your LomoHome. The answer my friends, is our new feature (or new-old for the vets out there), photomails!

Now you can send out e-postcards of your to your friends, foes, loved ones or secret crushes via photomail. All you have to do is:

  • Go to your LomoHome
  • Pick a photo you want to send out
  • Click on the “send as photomail” button
  • Enter the email address of the recipient. Voila!

As an added bonus, all recipients will get a special voucher code. If they register at Lomography using that code, you’ll get Piggies. How awesome is that? Try it out now!

    Self to the World: The Photography of Leanne Surfleet

    A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.

     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.

    Our new LomoAmigo Acey Slade has a pretty cool job. He's a touring bassist for musicians like Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. Even though music is his whole life, Acey still considers his photography to be much more important work. In this interview, Acey talks about his favorite cameras and a mysterious disposable camera lying around his band's tour bus—the developed pictures were nothing like his bandmates imagined!

    Afterimage: When Abstraction Meets Light Painting

    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.
