    Splendid Chinese Temple (Nontaburi)

    On my sunny day, my lovely friend and I want to go to somewhere beautiful and silent for taking photos. We don't have any ideas about where we are going to. First, we want to go to temple, but the trouble is which temple we want. Then we both conceive the new and nice Chinese temple in Nontaburi, Thailand......

    Tipster of the Day: LC-A+Chest Shot

    As a Lomographer, we don't like being told what we shouldn't do, say or hear and in most cases what's not to shoot- which is really impossible. And having this dogma in mind, another Lomotip is produced:

    Beta Launch Third Phase – Give Us Your Feedback

    You've seen some updates in recent weeks - mostly it's been new sections to our "Magazine":/magazine. But today we can show you something totally new: more options for you to add and contribute something to our Magazine posts. So far your interaction with the new site has been limited to comments. But now you can add pictures to existing entries - for example the "film":/magazine/films and "camera":/magazine/cameras review section: if you have taken shots with a specific film or camera you can add them. Also if you really like one article you can add it to your favorite social network site: like "StumbleUpon":http://www.stumbleupon.com, "Facebook":http://www.facebook.com, "MySpace":http://www.myspace.com, "Digg":http://www.digg.com, "del.icio.us":http://del.icio.us or "Magnolia":http://ma.gnolia.com (if we've forgotten a site you really love and use a lot: let us know, just leave a comment and we will add it).

  • TV tip: Fred Lebain on ARTE

    written by severin on 2008-06-02 #news

    Who remembers Fred Lebain? This Paris-based photographer is well known amongst Lomographers for his fabulous <i>Mes vacances avec Holga</i> photo book. Last week I accidentally stumbled across a TV program called "Künstler Hautnah/l'art et la manière" on French/German TV-channel ARTE. The program was dedicated to Fred Lebain; in a 25 minute feature you get an insight into his work and life - including the work on "Mes vacances avec Holga", the photobook "Irasshaimase" on Japan where he used mostly cross-processed photos, and a recent project on still-life photography with chocolate-covered objects. Definitely recommendable to anyone interested in creative analogue photography (that should be you)!
