Mephisto19 approached us with a great idea, and as you know, Lomography likes great ideas! So, we are giving Mephisto a chance to run a monthly rumble. Read after the jump for more information!
First of all I have to introduce myself and this rumble a bit. For those who do not know me, I am Stephan aka mephisto19 and I am quite active here on lomography.com . I have already been judge to some rumbles and gave the idea e.g. for the Vivian Maier Street Photograph Rumble. Now I got the chance to launch a monthly rumble, a small photo competition where I will be asking for your submissions. The themes will vary and will have to do with things I am working on or thinking about. So here is the first mephisto19 photo rumble.
This rumble is about couples, pairs, diptycs.
A whilte ago I posted a small blog called Playing with my Lubitel where I showed some pairs of photos I made using my Lubitel 166+ . I tried to take two photos that belong to each other in a certain way. I used a different aperture or distance setting, a different point of view. Due to the feedback (some were inspired and want to try it, too) I chose this as first rumble theme.
The task for the rumble now is to show me your best pair of photos.
There are different ways of creating two photos that belong to each other:
- formal aspects like aperture, angle, distance setting, point of view,…
- theme (e.g. day and night)
So start playing with your camera. Look for something that can be shown as pair/couple/diptyc.
Submission limit 3 (three) pairs, so six photos.
If you are using a half frame camera like Diana Mini one photo counts as one pair if you scanned it like a regular frame.
Analogue Photographs Only! No digital manipulation please.
Please read the theme! It is not about pairs on the photo itself (though it can be nice), but it does not need to have two of the same on the photo.
