Go ahead. Don't be afraid to let all the light in as you open up your cameras to the world. Who knows what you'll come up with?
Did the back of your Holga suddenly come off or are the light seals of your old analogue camera coming apart? Whatever the reason might be, they produce the oh-so-delicious light leaks! Having said that, we want to see your shots of stray light streaking in. Is it a faint red line or has more than half of the frame been completely exposed? Show us and you’ll get a chance to win a grand prize of enough Piggy Points to get you the *Special Light Leaks / Pinhole Bundle* at the online shop! Enter until April 20th and on Friday April 23rd we will announce the winners and give additional 5 Piggy Points to any submissions that make it into the Light Leaks / World Pinhole Day newsletter!
That’s 4 winners in total! 3 lucky people will receive a lovely 10 Piggy Points and one will walk away with the Bundle.

Don't be afraid of taking photos indoors or under low-light conditions. As long as there's light around us, the camera will be ready to shoot. Here's a tipster for you. Just remember to catch the lights!
Really want to bring your film photos to life? We’re now offering totally analogue fine art prints in a host of large sizes and formats! Carefully enlarged from your negatives onto premium photographic paper by lab professionals, each picture is a unique piece of craftsmanship.
Photography is not only an act of documentation or communication, it is also a way of seeing the world. The camera opens our eyes and lets us see what lies behind the obvious, and we start looking at things as potential subjects of a photograph. Every leak of light unveils secrets that talented photographers turn into a piece of art. Li Hui is one of those gifted artists. We talked to her about her work and her sensitive photographs that picture a wonderful vulnerability.
Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
Have you ever wondered why those nerdy camera constructors formulate complicated terms that baffle most normal citizens?
