Newbie Rumble - Try A Tipster


Hello Newbies! After three successful newbie rumbles we launched in the last year, we are excited to announce newbie rumble number four: Try a Tipster!

Lomography is a community of sharing, not only photos and the analogue love, but also tips & tricks, how to get special effects, how to experiment with photography and to fulfill the ten prophecies of an analogue future.

For this rumble we want you to look through those tipsters but that is of course not all. Try one or more tips and tricks and upload up to five of your best results. Please also add a link to the tipster you have used in the photo description. Enjoy exploring!

As this rumble requires time, you will have some. Five weeks from now on to read a tipster, shoot, develop the films and upload them to your Lomohome. And also the prize will be a pleasure. The lucky winner will get a Diana Mini!. Two runners up will get 5 Piggy points transferred to their piggy bank.

For this rumble we are happy to have mephisto19 back as guest judge, who already judged the earlier newbie rumbles.

    Can we try more than one tipster? As we have an upload limit of 5 could we in theory do 5 different tipsters? Or can we only use a single tipster?

    you can try as many tipsters as you want, but please add a link to the tipster in the description of the photo and upload only five photos in total. a tipster is a lomographic tip or trick you find in the magazine section... enjoy
