The Lomo Hipshot Showdown - Photogenic Winners Announcement

16

An arm’s length portrait of yourself is what we asked you last time, after a month has passed, we now bring you good news – the winners for the photogenic showdown is out and about!

Either you’re compelled to finish a roll of film or simply just being the vain person as you are, there’s always enough frame in that roll of film for snapping that photogenic self of yours! Maybe it’s just natural talent the Community has that we received tons of shots – from the much demure down to the most wackiest faces one can pull in front of the camera, they’re just fun to watch! And we think the 1 photo submission limit isn’t enough!

Moving on to the usual proceedings, we now present you the winners! First off is an entry picked by the Jury themselves, a statically dynamic Actionsampler shot taken by Brommi!

All caught up and being a square is rather an uncomfortable feeling, but Moodification doesn’t mind! As long as it’s sparkly enough, then it’s a good frame to put your self portrait in! And the Community thinks so, too!

Congratulations and good job on snapping yourselves with a Lomo camera! It’s really something of an effortless affair isn’t it? Our winner Brommi will receive 15 piggies and a badge for Moodification! Want to see some more? Take a look at these special selections we have and acquaint yourself with everyone’s lomo-pseudonyms along with their faces!

    Show Us Your Perfect Timing Winners Announcement!

    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.

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    Painting Delights: Going Wild with the Pixelstick

    Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind. Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!
