Expect the Unexpected Rumble

18

Ever been caught off-guard by a Lomographer with a camera in hand and a sudden flash? Of course you have! Or maybe you have been at the right place at just the right time to snap an unexpecting friend or family member who didn’t even hear the shutter click?

Surprise! You’re not on Candid Camera, but you might as well be! Unguarded moments, happy accidents and candid shots are but some of the pretty surprises we encounter in our everyday Lomo-lives. These images show soul and character that you can never replicate in posed and staged photos. A heartfelt laugh is always better than a forced smile right?

For this rumble, we dare you to capture the spontaneity of these moments. Be ready with a blazing fast trigger finger and you just might win yourself Piggies. Goodluck!

  • Prize(s): 3 winners and 10 Piggies each
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated. Please keep in mind the unexpected theme.
  • Upload Limit: 10 Photos
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)

    Estonian Intersections of Sight and Sound

    Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? As photographers, we might choose the latter without a second thought, especially while viewing the festival photos that photographer Mart Vares captured with the New Petzval 85 Lens. Still, who doesn’t love the pleasant mechanical shutter sound of an old SLR that makes us commit to analog photography? While following the Nordic delegation at this years Waves Central Europe, we caught up with the Estonian band, Würffel, whose songs leave us feeling equally delighted.

    The Go! Team in Dublin: No Flash Photography Please

    I have to admit that I’ve never liked using flash in public places. In some situations it can be distracting. Like concerts, for example. Can you imagine a live music show where people decide all of a sudden to use it at the same time?

    Petzval Lomographer of The Week:  Golfpunkgirl

    Our Lomographers love their Petzval and, as a result, they have taken it to the most amazing places: gardens full of green, immensely busy cities and breathtaking landscapes. Yet, sometimes, all you need is what you have right at home. Keeping family memories with the Petzval Lens never looked this good, and golfpunkgirl does it well.

    A Compilation of Lomo'Instant Stories

    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. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!
