Lomography Summer Challenge 2010


Show us your summer through lomographic lenses! Send your best summer pics shot with lomography cameras from this year or past vacations to the Lomography Portugal team - hot prizes are waiting for you!

If you’re like us, you count your lomographic camera as part of the gang when making your summer plans. The downside is your plastic friend won’t chip in for gas, but that’s nothing compared to the analogue memories you’ll get after the trip.
We’re sure there’s an Actionsampled sand flip or at the very least a light trailed evening cocktail with your best friends hiding somewhere in your box o’ pictures! We want them!

Send us up to 12 of your best summer lomographs and win incredible prizes:

Plus: Like in previous years, an exhibition of the best photos is planned for autumn.

The contest is NOT limited to pictures taken in Portugal or from Portugese lomographers. Send your photos by regular mail (cd or 10×15cm print) or e-mail (10×15cm @ 300 ppi jpg) to info@lomografiaportugal.com. The contest runs until 18th of September.

For more details visit www.lomografiaportugal.com and don’t hesitate to write an e-mail if you have any questions.

    making use of a sunny day I captured this image looking to sell the effects of contre-jour lighting, using a small aperture setting of f2.8, I also underrated the film speed by one stop, pulling the the ASA 200 film to a setting of 100 for an increase in contrast, filtering the blue out of heavty clouds.

Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
