Pinhole Portraits Rumble Winners Announcement

5

Portraits using pinhole cameras might sound crazy and downright ludicrous, but it can be done! We know you guys are skeptical but here are the winners of Pinhole Portraits Rumble to quell your disbelief!

We are accustomed for our pinhole photography attempts to have exposures of a minimum of 30 seconds to over an hour or two. But given the right conditions, and a tripod or something stable to place your camera on, it is possible to snap a quick pinhole portrait without the face resembling something out of a Japanese horror movie! If you want proof, here are the winners of our Pinhole Portraits Rumble! They’ll each get 5 Piggies and the accolades of their peers!

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!

    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.

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
