People With ... Books!

2009-01-24 52

If you are a curious Lomographer, (we are sure that you are), you will most likely sneak upon family members and friends while the are… reading! But what are they reading? Are they even reading or are they just looking at the pictures? Are they comfortably at home in the living room sofa or in the library? Do they “shhhhhhhh” you away or smile for your picture? But don’t limit your imagination to others, what about you? Do you read? In which position?

But don’t limit your imagination to others, what about you? Do you read? In which position?

For this special rumble we are looking for your best shots with books! Need more ideas? How about:

  • libraries
  • people looking inspired
  • maybe an animal reading? (my dog does!)
  • people drinking tea or coffee with a book

Details:

  • 10 picture upload limit
  • 3 winners of 10 piggies
  • By submitting to this rumble you allow Lomography to use your images for promotional purposes

    @LSI: at the bottom it says "Your submitted images" and shows my ten, and below that it says "Upload limit exceeded"...but my images still are not showing up...they aren't included in the 21 submitted images...but it won't let me submit anymore...

    @Larslau: .....

  27. grenoouille
    grenoouille ·

    I had 5 shots missing too... just uploaded one of them again... obviously it is working fine now and obviously it has nothing to do with the size of our pics...
    I suppose we have to be patient... no doubt all submissions will be taken into account and maybe the deadline will be extended...
    Enjoy what remains from your weekend! Monday will come (too) soon...

  28. paper_doll
    paper_doll ·

    @Larslau: the pictures that appear in the "Images submitted by users" (23 so far) were submitted now. for example, i submitted yesterday and my shots don't appear. so we're not stupid, there is some kind of problem, get it? "geez..."

    Portraiture in Reverse: a Candid Study of Toby Harvard

    Everything about a person can be read upon the sight of his face -- the squint of eyes, turn of lips or raise of brows immediately paint one's feelings like an open book; but these elements are shrouded in English photographer Toby Harvard's portraiture.

    Neil Krug: Pulp, Rock, Color

    In 2009, Neil Krug uploaded a commercial for Pulp Art Book on Youtube. In the comments section someone asked, “Does anyone know what kind of camera he uses or how he gets his pictures to look the way they do?” Krug was on to something. He did something wildly intriguing, one that looked to have a secret formula.

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    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.
