It’s been a few weeks now since we wrapped this rumble up and by now we’re quite sure that all of you out there are dying to know whose picture managed to snag the gleaming reward for this showdown!
So, let’s make this short and quick, shall we?
First photo is a mirror self-portrait that we thought was taken by somebody else, but in fact it is the owner of the camera himself! Brilliantly done shot and almost had us fooled – a sure winner for us!
While this, a re-photographed scene from a movie overlayed with somewhat random frame, gave the shot an otherworldly feel into it and the Community liked it very much!
Well done for our winners! Each of them will get a badge and an additional 15 piggies for our showdown winner! Want to see more? Below is a gallery of specially selected submissions and we just can’t help but show them to you for better viewing!
A few months ago, Lomography made available a whole range of pinhole cameras made out of premium wood. Interested on knowing how good they are, I brought the medium format one on my last trip to Germany.
Shake well and apply to fabric. Blot out excess using a paper towel. Create your design using Inkofilm or anything that casts a shadow. Expose to sunlight or bright UV light for 10-20 minutes or until color reaches full saturation. Machine wash using Inkowash to remove unexposed dye. Double your exposure time in overcast weather. Enjoy the "wow" result!
As a professional photography graduate, Fernando never goes out without carrying at least one camera and treats it as an integral part of his body. Although he uses both digital and analog gears, he still regards using film as a more intimate way of creating images. Let's all welcome our newcomer from Brazil, Fernando Monteiro.
Coinciding with the relaunch of the Lomography community website is the debut of one of the Magazine's newest series, Meet the Innovators. Here, we'll be talking to some of the game changers in the field of photography to get a closer look on what they do as well as find out their personal insights. For our opening salvo we proudly introduce Cat Ong, Lomography's very own Head of Optic Product Development who counts the research and development of the LC-A family, Russar and Petzval Art Lenses, Diana F+, and Lomo'Instant, among many others, as some of his projects.
Photos shot with a New Petzval lens are immediately recognizable for their super-sharp focus areas and wonderful swirly bokeh effect. Each New Petzval lens is crafted from brass (just like the original Petzval lens) and features premium glass optics. Together with Lomography, the lenses have been designed and constructed by a team of optics specialists at the Zenit factory in Russia. Zenit are master lens manufacturers and have the skill to build the Petzval lens for use with today’s SLR cameras.

With only a handful being produced each year, nows your chance to grab hold of this fine piece of photographic equipment!
