The LomoGuys' Valentine Wishlist!

2009-02-04 11

Love is definitely in the air at the Lomography HQ in Vienna. We got to thinking about what could be the perfect Valentine’s gift – and while chocolates and flowers are fine for some, we think nothing says ‘I lurrrrve you’ like a shiny new Lomographic treat! (We could be biased ;) So we asked some of the LomoGents what one Lomographic present they would like to get from their sweetheart this Valentine’s Day. Take a tour d’amour into the minds of a few of our LomoStuds. Who knows, you just might get a gift tip or two for your beloved! Or why show yourself some love and pick yourself up a nice present!

So here’s what the chaps want for Valentine’s Day… Which Lomography goodie would you like for Valentine’s Day?

polt would like nothing more on V Day than his very own Mr. Pink Diana F+

Mr. Pink in the shop

“It looks really original and eye-catching. Pink is a popular colour for everyone at the moment – you see it everywhere – especially in design and on websites. I would certainly stand out at parties with Mr Pink in hand”.

lucasjakobsson would like to get some Lomolitos ]

“They’re easy to use and colourful! I want some so i can spread the love and pass them on to my nearest and dearest and then they’ll love me even more! Haha!”

pan_dre wants the Sushi Tea Cups

“Telling your friends to leave you out of the Sake Bomb rounds for the night and calling your loved-one over for some delicious home delivery sushi and a bowl of green tea – now we’re talking about the perfect Valentines Day! So the Lomographic Sushi Cups of Love would have to be my pick.”

somapic will be dropping some serious hints to his lady friend for the Sidekick TPE bag

“I just like the rugged material and it´s really practical to sport some cameras and film. Plus there are enough secret pockets to hide a little jewel case for your valentine as a present ;)”

mandi would be a happy bunny if the LomoCupid presented him with a white lomofolio bag

“I bought one for my sister but I secretly wanted to keep it for myself”.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

    A Hunt for Curios and Wonderful Patterns

    Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.

     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.
