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.

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!
