It’s what they say, ignorance is bliss and there’s no point in getting caught up and anxious about something. So why not to let go and join our showdown now!
Golden Rule #8: You don’t have to know beforehand what you captured on film
For someone who’s from the outside looking in would find it quite hard to appreciate or even to understand what this Golden Rule #8 actually means and normally they would just shrug their shoulders and dismiss it as a wasted frame, a bad picture or worse – an amateur’s failed attempt at making a photograph. On contrary, it is one of the many expertise a Lomographer could do with much less of an effort!
From the time we aim our camera and until an exposure is made by pressing its shutter button, we always hope for something magical – randomness! And these kind of snaps are what we yearn for this time for our current showdown!
2 winners will be selected, one by the Jury and another winner will be determined by the number of likes on the submitted photo (within the showdown period)

Basically there's not much more to say: you can now edit your avatar and description. Now the tough question remains: what to show as your avatar? Yourself? Your favorite photo? Your cat? And what about the description? First or third person? Maybe go for pluralis majestatis?
As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewellyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewellyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.
Although its existence has always been known among locals, it was only in 1913 when the rest of the world was introduced to the Inca site of Machu Picchu through an expedition headed by Yale University and professor Hiram Bingham.

Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
