The Great Lomo LC-A Race: Locations Primer

2

Before you all get started and run around the city shooting like a madman, here are some guidelines first on what to shoot and how to win the big race and 100 Piggy Points to your account!

As you’ve probably read already, you will be required to write at least 3 locations from the pictures that you took with the provided Lomo LC-A – but taking more locations than the required will up your ante of winning an individual 100 Piggy Points

We will be having 10 Location ‘Stages’ indicated by the simultaneous open call of a new Race Mission (rumble) where we will be picking individual stage winners based on submitted Locations during the stage:

  • Number of Locations published
  • Quality of Locations
  • Remoteness of Locations (in comparision to your location)
  • Completeness of Location Metadata and narrative

The stage winner will be receiving an individual 100 Piggy Points. Our stage winners will be hand-picked by our Lomo LC-A Race Jury made of LomoStaff and Users alike, and the announcement will take 2 to 3 weeks after each stage has been completed.

Each published (and approved) Location is worth 5 Piggy Points so assuming you’ve submitted 3 full Location posts you get 15 Piggy Points, plus an extra 5 Piggy Points for approved submissions in excess.

Remember to turn on your GPS tracking device while shooting for these Locations.

Please check out the GPS Software download link here And the accompanying help section on how to operate the GPS unit. Further details will follow soon as to how you could upload the GPS location data.

Please provide a Location of the following before turning the camera to your next teammate:

  • Urban adventures – a place of interest in a city (market, mall, stadium)
  • Jewels of the city – a famous place in the city (church, museum, square, etc)
  • Night & Music Delirium – some place to go out (party, concert hall, any site for pleasure)

How do you submit these Locations, you say? Check out our brief below:

Please tag your Location submissions accordingly (along with other descriptives):

Lomo LC-A Race

urban adventures (if the submission falls under the ‘Urban Adventures’ category)
city (if the submission falls under the ‘Jewels of the City’ category)
night and music (if the submission falls under the Night & Music Delirium category)

Locations should follow our 5-photo minimum submission rule for them to be approved.

Please also make sure to ‘pin’ your country at our submission page. The country/city will copy on to the input box, then click ‘find on map’ until a red pointer appears. After such, you are now ready to submit your Location!

Finally, submit your location and wait for them to be checked and published thoroughly.

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

    Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.

    LomoLocations: Tokyo, Japan

    Common advice tells us that Tokyo is best experienced at night. The neon lights of Ginza come on, Shibuya Crossing gets crammed, Ropponggi lets loose. Reverse the advice and we’ll get something like a palate cleanser. The Imperial Palace, Shinjuku Gyoen and small parks peppered around the city offer relief, from morning until late afternoon. Even ordinary streets appeal to tourists. We suspect those secret ramen spots add to the charm.
