    Lomography at Photokina 2008

    It’s the 5th time Lomography has been invited to participate in the world’s largest photo-imaging event, so we are going all out in celebration of the unique creative use of film coming from one million+ Lomographers worldwide! The LomoWall forms the focal-piece of our “Future is Analogue” exploration and bursts with over 100,000 amazing film images. The fantastic LomoWall takes centre-stage in the immense Lomography Lounge – which will play host to a huge array of analogue talks, events and parties over the next 5 days!

    Snap! Feature in a Magazine in Japan!

    Our friends from "Snap!":http://www.snap-magazine.com/, (a seasonal film and camera magazine, targeted at stylish young adults who enjoy photography and cameras, published in Japan) are planning a feature on double-exposure photography for Lomographers to enjoy and learn more about. People often think of double-exposure photos as something taken out of coincidence, but "Snap!":http://www.snap-magazine.com/ wants to encourage a new way of enjoying double-exposure photos taken with careful planning and calculation.

    Instant Photography Lives

    Polaroid-style photography is more alive than ever! This means all the Polaroid die-hards can finally throw off their black suits, come out of mourning and rejoice! While it may be true that Polaroid is getting out of the instant photography game, Fuji has taken the baton. Fuji Instax cameras are a new generation of instant camera. Using Polaroid know-how as a base Fuji has made big leaps ininstant photo technology - meaning faster development, more mod-cons, great colour reproduction and cheaper instant film. Lomography is pleased to present the most exciting new instant photo cameras and legendary Polaroid deadstock, plus all the instant film you could need!

    How to Tag

    Tagging, aka keywording (as it was called on the old site) is here for us to use and make organization of pictures easy. In order to make it user friendly we need to have a uniform system of tagging among us. Please see our suggestions by "Miriel":http://beta.lomography.com/homes/miriel from the Archive below, these are the main points we believe will help tagging improve :)

    This is My LomoStory ... What's Yours?

    I first discovered Lomography when Netscape browsers were all the rage. I was checking out someone personal's website and saw a photo taken with the LC-A. I have never seen anything like it - vignettes, grain, and the explosion of colours. Needless to say I was impressed, but I gave up hopes of acquiring such camera since I was still a student on a tight budget.

    Double Whammy! Round-the-Clock Rumble Winners

    This is definitely one of the toughest round-the-clock rumbles we had to judge. A really insane number of submissions presented the infinite possibilities of doubling up their shots. But like all good things, there is an end to this great rumble.

    Picking the Winners

    Picking winners is never easy, and we understand that some of you may question our choice of winners at time, some of you hinting that we have a random system in place doing the work for us. We have also seen several comments recently that many of the winning pictures are good but do not fit the theme of the competition and that submissions are winning that do not meet requirements. That’s why we thought we could take some time and answer some questions.

    Zenit 11 gallery - Balos, Greece

    My favourite camera breaking into in pieces right before my trip to Balos, Greece could have turned into a complete photo-disaster but, lucky me, I ended up giving my Zenit 11 SLR a go.

  • Deadstock Tale by grimbyname: Smena Symbol

    Deadstock Tale by grimbyname: Smena Symbol

    In the summer of 2006, while doing a bit of mindless web wandering, I discovered the weird and wonderful community of film-addicted lomographers, and wanted to join in. Looking through the homes and shop, while waiting for a Fisheye 2 to arrive, it didn't take me long to discover that I already possessed a bona-fide lomographic Russian deadstock tool, a Symbol bought for me by my father in the early eighties. He was a keen amateur photographer, owning both Zenit and Praktica SLRs, a Zorki 4K rangefinder, all with a variety of lenses, and his own black and white darkroom kit too. For some reason he'd decided to buy a Symbol each for me and my mother, most probably because they were cheap, about £8 if I remember correctly. I already had a Fed 4 (a 'proper' camera with coupled rangefinder and built-in light meter) that my parents had bought me for being a smart lad for passing my 11-plus exam for the grammar school, so the Symbol, UK branded as Cosmic rather than Smena, saw little use, and I don't even know if any pics remain from its early days. Smena means 'Young Generation', which is when I first became acquainted with the Symbol. Cosmic sounds rather fantastical, spacey even, or perhaps an exclamation from a zoned-out hippy. No matter, I'm not afraid to admit to having been all those things at one time or another. And the photographic evidence of much of that is hopefully locked in a secure vault somewhere. Anyway, I digress.
