The Long Exposure Photo Challenge

Prop your camera up, open the shutter, and play! This photo challenge is all about fun and experimentation, so show us your most creative long exposure shot, the ones where the lights blur and the unexpected is exposed. Whether it’s a long exposure shot of a moving crowd, the spinning stars at night, or your best painting with light photo , we want to see it!

The long exposure photo challenge is sponsored and guest-judged by Lomography and the top three winners will receive one of the new special edition Colorsplash Chakra cameras, designed by Staple Design, along with a copy of the “Colorsplash Chakras” book, signed by Staple and Lomography. This photo challenge will be open for one week and will close July 2nd. Some starter tips— use a tripod to avoid camera shake, and try some test shots at 10, 20, or 30 seconds. But there’s no right way, so show us how you shoot!

The contest starts NOW!! Deadline for submissions: July 2nd.

Submit your images and read more here.

    From Russia with Love: Motorama Shoots with the La Sardina Splendour

    I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.
