Blonde Ambition Rumble

6

In honor of Marilyn Monroe's birthday week, we here at Lomography will be ending our celebration of it with a bang...through dun, dun, dun - a rumble! We know you guys love a good rumble - so do we, and so with one of the most well-loved blondes as inspiration, here's what you gotta do to indulge in your own blonde ambition!

Credits: undiscovered

Ready to score yourself some piggies? Well this one is actually quite easy, all you need to do is submit a photo of your favorite blonde – yourself in a blonde wig, your mom, your better half, Barbie…taken with your favorite film camera and you’re good to go. Of course, you can submit any photo with a blonde-haired subject in it, but the challenge here is to make it interesting enough to catch out judges’ fancy. Whichever way you choose to do it is fine with us as long as you stick to film! Good luck everyone!

Details

  • Prize(s): 3 winners of 10 Piggies. All winners will receive a special award badge straight to their LomoHomes
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated. Please keep in mind of our theme.
  • Upload Limit: 1 photo
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)

So here are a few tips, courtesy of the Lomo'Instant, that will help you to break the ice.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
