Thought we forgot about this little tidbit eh? We want to see the self portraits you've taken during the race!
Like an afternoon cup of tea, the self-portrait has become a ritual of sorts that we’ve grown accustomed to with our Lomographic cameras. So it’s only natural that back when we first started the Great LOMO LC-A Race, we asked each contestant to do two things:
Take a self portrait of yourself and the camera in a mirror.
Take a portrait of yourself with the latest edition of a local newspaper.
We haven’t exactly gone into detail what part the self-portrait plays in our little game until now! Upload your best self-portrait and newspaper shots taken while shooting for the LC-A Race and the top 5 self portraits with AND without the newspaper will get some more points to add to their team’s total, as well as an individual 10 Piggy Point bonus! So that’s two chances to win folks! Act fast! Don’t forget to complete the tags and include which team number that you’re part of. Now let’s see those shots!
He cannot stand a day without using his Lomo LC-Wide and his ongoing yearlong self-portrait project is a testament of his strong devotion to this wide-eyed snapper. Read on to know more about Mario Grieco, or aka goonies in our Community, and his Weapon of Choice, the Lomo LC-Wide!
The awesome album you'll find after the jump is a fitting one for today's special occasion, and will perhaps make you want to look back at those precious portraits of moms around you that you've taken in the past!
There is nothing 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.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
