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)

    Tinker on the fly: A color filter made from spoiled film

    Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.

If you haven't been there yourself, or if you have and simply wanted to be reminded of the beauty of the place, we've compiled a few select lomographs taken using no less than the LC-A by our community members!
