Round-the-Clock Rumble: Cable Release - Self-Portraits Edition ended over 5 years ago

For this rumble, we're asking you for your best self-portraits using a cable release.

Hello once again, our dear rumble fanatics! We hope everyone’s recovered from our first ever round-the-clock rumble week – here comes the second installment and it’s all about you and your cable release.

A few months ago, we had our feature on an extraordinary self-portraitist, Nadirah/Colormered – mastering the lo-fi art of using a cable release in her photographs. For this rumble, we’re asking you for your best self-portraits using a cable release. Show your most creative poses for your favourite analog beauties and be rewarded!

CONTEST DETAILS

Deadline: 24 hours

Allowed Cameras: Any analog camera photo not digitally enhanced. An addition for this rumble is the use of a cable release in composing the photo.

Minimum Dimensions: At least 768px either width or height

Please note that sample photos are theme suggestions only. Feel free to be creative with your interpretation of the theme!

    Hmmm...and what about self-portraits without using a cable release?
    Allowed or Not Allowed?
    That is the question...

    I love Nadirah's work; her shots even made me buy that 10m cable release on ebay but when I got it I realized that it doesn't go with any of my cameras. So I've got to wait until I'll have a camera that works with it. But I'm looking forward to the submisions!
    And I'd also be interested in the answer to Melanie's question!!

    Sorry guys, we forgot to allow the uploaded pictures to be accepted. Sorry!

    And yes, the 22 hours means that you can still submit for this amount of time,

    it is strange, I can't find the 10m cable release anymore in LSI shop.
    I did send an email to LSI and got a promise that it will be in stock again in this year September 2008, but it's October now, where is the 10m cable release???

    I cant even find the Holga135BC too... Hmmmm.. can anyone let me know more about these 2 items?

    Oh, my bad... I just assumed it was the starting time and not the ending time when I didn't see any submissions and also no upload-button (which is a bug on my end btw, damn firewall)...

    Found one. Though, this has just bought back memories of how I wish I had bought that 30ft cable release back when it was being sold here.

    i use my cable release mostly to do long exposure self portraits- the one from the LSI had a nifty screw that holds the shutter so i can use my B setting like a T setting! unfortunately you don't see the cable in the picture because i'm running around and the cable is on the camera on the tripod! hahaa!
