The Lomo Hipshot Showdown - It Only Happens at Night Winners Announcement

8

Just when the sun is about to retire, in a few minutes the duskiness sets in and eats everything that surrounds you with its darkness, making all things in sight dead and lifeless. But in actuality, there are indeed a lot of things that unfold at night; you just have to know where to look for that light that refuses to go out!

As expected, we received quite a number of submissions for this round of the showdown that we can’t help but be overwhelmed by all of them! And to choose one winner is such torture! Anyway, let’s take a look at whose shots made it this time.

Having this hypnotic laser-beaming, chrome-faced mystery guy as a subject, this channels a kind of hyper-futurism at all directions! We just love it!

While this one, a photo of a woman who is just so delighted, her heart seems to be glowing brightly is the community’s choice!

Well done for our winners! Your prizes will be given to you within a week’s time, so be sure to keep an eye for it! Now it’s time for us to take another look at these submissions that we think deserve more than a glance, so here they are! Enjoy!

    Solar Eclipses and Beyond

    The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!

    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.

    Bite-Size Fiction: Spectre

    Ever since she started working late hours Tammy had inevitably acquired the habit of staying up into the wee hours of the night, doing nothing but catch up on her favorite websites, eat, and watch television. When nothing good’s on TV or in the Internet, however, she liked to hang out at her room’s balcony, sneakily smoking a cigarette or two while musing about all sorts of things.

    Luka Tacon: Demasiado Sabor!

    We met our new LomoAmigo Luka Tacon when we danced to the hypnotic beats of his duo Heartbreaker at our Lomo'Instant Wide Launch Party in NYC. Now, the brooklyn-based DJ and electronic music producer is preparing for an EPIC Lover's Ball at House of Yes with his friends at Might Get Weird, experimenting with the La Sardina and LC-A, and feeling the Latin rhythms of Costa Rica. Read more about his inspirations and how he feels analog equipment, whether it be for music or photography, has something that digital just doesn't. As a special bonus, you can listen to his exclusive Heartbreaker set!
