◦Film/Camera Type: Any analogue pinhole 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)

    Time for me to be a dum dum! is a 'Pinhole' shot still a pinhole shot if you use a lens? (a Diana bulb shot with lens as an example) Or must it be lens-less? Ta x

    @ade - Yes, a pinhole shot is a photo without a lens - So take the lens off your Diana, switch it the 'p' setting and then take a photo :-)
    @yopanic - You can always try making your own pinhole camera - Watch the video from justi quinnell in this video for a guide - www.lomography.com/magazine/lifestyle/2011/04/19/justin-qui…

    On-Time Rumble: Show Us Your Perfect Timing

    There is nothing than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time.
