No this isn't another multiple exposure competition. Instead, you'll have to scour approximately 1.9% of the world population to get a chance to shoot twins! They aren't exactly endangered so you shouldn't have too much trouble finding them.
Twins are definitely trouble. Ask Hugh Hefner and he’s sure to tell you about how the Shannon Twins misbehaved so much that they had to be kicked out of the Playboy mansion. But amidst all these, twins still hold sway over us as they possess an unmistakable appeal. This could be the sheer eeriness of seeing double, or the mere wonder and awe of towards genetics and science.
So for this month, your Mission is to shoot some twins. They could be your childhood friends whose names you kept mixing up, or event he Olsen twins if you have access to them. Please note that we’re not looking for multiple exposure shots but photos of actual twins themselves. We know that this challenge is a bit difficult but the prize is definitely worth the trouble as we’re giving Piggies enough to twin prizes as well – Fisheye 1 Blue Pearl and Red! The winners will also receive a special award badge straight to their LomoHomes!

When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.

By now the Lomography site is like a pail of candied purple. Our confection LomoChrome Purple has produced forests and flower beds the shade of lavender macarons. Hard to resist the fantasy! But lately we have noticed darker, late-afternoon-sun versions. And we like what we see.
