After having a slight glitch regarding the submissions system for this showdown last week and obviously resulting in the delay for its winner announcement, well, guess what – today we got the lucky ones who made it this round!
For the record, this is the first time we got so many submissions for a single showdown and to narrow down more than 300 outstanding shots is quite a daunting ordeal really, but hey, someone’s got to do the dirty job and there can only be one winner! The Jury has decided to pick this shot by anafaro!
Now, it’s the community’s turn, as they busied themselves for the past week liking their favourite submissions and almost everyone picked this one taken by stonerfairy!
Congratulations to our winners and to everyone who participated. We now leave you a very special gallery selected from the submitted shots, because we just can’t resist not showing you these ‘Number One’ snaps!
There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.
The theme for this competition: water. Together with soulbottles, we asked for the best water-themed images from the community and received such captivating images as entries. It's time to announce the lucky winners of unique soulbottles and great prizes from Lomography!
We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. I'll start with Rapid film.
After a fully booked 2015, photographer Chloé Vollmer-Lo found time to test the Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens. She brought it to the Natural History Museum and the Paris business district, an endeavor that resulted in quite a few stunning, bokeh-rich images.
Ella Lama is a letterer and illustrator based in Manila, Philippines. Her work is a perfect mix of good cheer and unfeigned creativity. Recently, she designed a Lomo'Instant White camera with cute and playful illustrations inspired by her Japan trip.
Aside from photography, newcomer Dmitri Berenger enjoys a multitude of hobbies including gardening, watching movies, and discovering music. In this interview, he talks about his photographic style, his inspirations, choosing film cameras over digital gear, and many more.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
London based photographer Cat Stevens uses the softer, more subtle aesthetics of film photography throughout her work. Her shoots consist of the familiar light leaks and washed out tones that most film shooters will be familiar with. She has photographed artists such as Deerhunter, PJ Harvey and recently took a series of sun drenched beach shots which adorned The Charlatans' last album cover titled "Modern Nature."
