Horizon Streetscape Story Rumble

24

Take your Horizon cameras out for an afternoon walk around the busiest street of your city and show us a sweeping streetscape snapshot that will make us swoon!

Credits: guanatos

We are all aware of the unparalleled capability of the Horizon cameras to produce spectacular wide panoramic images. Whether it’s a majestic view of purple mountain ranges or a calming scenery of the setting sun, we can rely on both the Horizon Kompakt and the Horizon Perfekt to render nothing but the best wanderlust-inducing shots.

But this time, instead of those exotic paradise and beaches, we want you to show us how these two powerhouses will fare with shooting the colorful city life and its streetscapes. From a newly built bus station to an almost torn down building. From rigid street signs to artsy graffiti walls. From traffic lights to store’s neon lights. From an open public park to the dark, gritty alleys. Show us what gives your bustling street its unique urban character through your Horizon snapshot.

And to make this rumble a little more exciting, we want you to share the story behind your entries through a short blog post (three to five sentences for each entry will do). Write up your story (don’t forget to include the photo) and publish it on your User Blog. Then, post the link to your blog entry on the comments section below.

The best entry and story will win a whooping 30 piggies plus a special badge to be pinned on his or her LomoHome!

Details:

  • One Grand Prize winner of 30 piggies and 5 runners-up of 10 piggies each. All winners will get a special badge in their LomoHomes.
  • Maximum of three submissions per user.
  • Don’t forget to tag your photos (film, cameras, accessories, and at least three tags). Photos without these tags will not be accepted.
  • Submissions without the blog entry will not be considered.
  • Submissions must be taken using Horizon Kompakt and Horizon Perfekt only. Please keep in mind our streetscape theme.
  • Rumble will run for three weeks.

Show us what it’s like to have the lens of the Horizon cameras sweep the scenes of your streets! Good luck everyone! We’ll be waiting for your entries!

The Horizon Kompakt makes it easy for everyone to shoot fantastic panoramic images. With fixed focus and aperture settings, all you have to do is point and shoot! Get your own Horizon Kompakt now!

The Horizon Perfekt shoots images the length of two standard frames. With full aperture and shutter settings, this premium panoramic camera gives you total control over your shots. Prepare to be blown away by the amazing Horizon Perfekt, available here.

    There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart.

    LomoLocations: Tokyo, Japan

    Common advice tells us that Tokyo is best experienced at night. The neon lights of Ginza come on, Shibuya Crossing gets crammed, Ropponggi lets loose. Reverse the advice and we’ll get something like a palate cleanser. The Imperial Palace, Shinjuku Gyoen and small parks peppered around the city offer relief, from morning until late afternoon. Even ordinary streets appeal to tourists. We suspect those secret ramen spots add to the charm.

    Creating Instant Environments With The Lomo'Instant

    The next time you find yourself wandering around town with your Lomo'Instant camera, here's a neat trick that you can do: choose a specific area and quickly snap an instant photo. Once it develops, hold it in the exact position or angle where you took the instant photo, and take a standard photo using your favorite camera. Does it sound confusing? Ah, well ... let's just show you how it's done! Check out the photos after the jump.
