Lomomission 57: In Transit


Just because you're not on foot doesn't mean you can't shoot! Stand up, balance yourself, and try to win this month's Lomomission challenge!

We spend a great deal of time traveling – going to work, doing errands, or having a vacation. Sometimes due to the routine that we have grown accustomed to, we don’t even bring our cameras anymore, which is sad! We only get to shoot when we’re stationary or walking, not too much while we are moving. The challenge then, for this month, is to floor us with your shots taken while in transit – be it a bicycle, car, train or a plane! The ride may be rough or the turbulence scary, but can you steady yourself for a fraction of a second to get the shot that will win you a Diana Mini and Diana Flash! Let’s see and find out. For now, hop on and click away! Act fast, as we’re only giving you 2 weeks for this Mission!

Grand Prize:
A Diana Mini and a Diana Flash for the grand prize winner!

2nd Place: 15 Piggies
3rd Place: 10 Piggies
4th Place: 5 Piggies

Competition Details:

  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated
  • Upload Limit: 5 photos
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags) for prize eligibility.
  • By submitting your photos to this rumble, you allow Lomography.com to use your submitted photos for promotional purposes.

    Tinker on the fly: A color filter made from spoiled film

    Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.
