Newbie Shooters Rumble Winner Announcement - Jury's Choice: bear1973's picks

Hey Newbies, listen up! Our first winner announcement by bear1973's cream of the crop picks are here! Check out what made these winning photos tick!

Just like in old kung-fu movies, the molding of a great artist all lies in the training of the student with the master. So we scoured the community for venerable Lomography grandmasters to help out you young grasshoppers and pick some winners in our Newbie Shooters Rumble! Needing no introduction, bear1973 and vicuna both have been pillars of the community and are more than willing to share their insight in their creative processes!

  • Months listed are registration dates during rumble period

bear1973’s picks:

elindudut – 1 month old

Playful, interesting and fun. Long boring trips will pass in no time with elindudut and her Diana mini as your traveling companion

mford – 1 month old

Deep shadows in the foreground and a gorgeous shade of red are always a winner but throw in a exotic location and donkey and mford delivers the goods, photo wise that is.

niguevara – 2 weeks old

With a sky this blue, niguevara’s makes you yearn for that holiday getaway. Pack my bags, I want to leave on this jet plane!

mr_sid – 2 months

Lovely composition and a great subject combine to make a winning entry from mr_sid.

wrkrparasite – 2 months

Every lomographer has a photo of powerlines in their home. it is as ubiquitous as a long exposure of a ferris wheel. wrkparasite’s combination of his Diana and some ilford Hp5, gives us a fresh perspective, Ethereal and dreamy but with added gloom. Nice!

For our winners, please head on to our new Member’s Benefits FAQ section for queries on Piggy Points and further information. Congratulations and thank you for continuously supporting our rumbles!

    I was brutally sick all week and subsequently haven't been online until today, and then I see this! Totally stoked! Super honored to be chosen alongside these other totally rad shots, and blown away to be chosen period, given the ridiculous quality of everyones' submissions. Thanks so much!
