LomoMission 68: Your 'Worst' Shot

102

Everywhere you go to, there's always a contest or a thread about your best shot taken in the past year. We're going to change things up a bit and add a dash of humor to the start of the year. Bring your worst!

First of all, let’s make things clear for a moment. This LomoMission doesn’t want to embarrass or humiliate anyone. On the contrary, this Mission seeks to show that we are all human and we all make mistakes. Did you leave the bulb mode on your Holga while shooting in direct sunlight? Forgot your lens cap on the Fisheye? Shot in low light with the LOMO LC-A+ while your hands are shaking? We’ve all been there!

So what is your worst shot taken for 2010? Show us and tell the story of the shot in the description and get a chance to win a whopping 150 Piggies to start the New Year right. Good luck!

  • Prize(s): 1 winner of 150 Piggy Points.The winner will also receive a special award badge straight to their LomoHomes
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated
  • Upload Limit: 5 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)

By submitting your photos to this rumble, you allow Lomography.com to use your submitted photos for promotional purposes.
