Love Unexpected July - Electrifying Love ended over 2 years ago

Photography at its most basic is all about light. So for this month, we'll focus on that little fact. Play with lights, send in your most interesting and psychedelic shots, and get a chance to win a trip to Virginia or a Virginia is for Lovers Lomography camera.

Without light, photography as we know it would be impossible. That’s why for this month, we’re celebrating the majesty of light in our photos! We’re looking for nothing in particular – just about anything with cool lighting will do. Whether it be a simple spotlight on a singer on a stage, crazy light painting experiments at night, or simple light leaks from your old camera, we and Virginia is for Lovers would love to see it!

Not that you needed more motivation to do so, but Lomography, together with Virginia is for Lovers will be giving away a dream domestic Roadside Wonders Trip to Virginia for this competition, which will consist of a Luray Caverns tour, a movie showing at Hull’s Drive-in Theatre, a natural Bridge Tour and even a spooky ghost tour in Lexington! You can’t beat that! Smile your brightest smile and give us those self portraits today! And the winning Lomographers will be awarded a limited edition ‘Virginia is for Lovers’ camera! Charge your flash, light it up, and shoot today! This will be a domestic trip though, so you’ll need to be in the US.

    @cruzron : "Smile your brightest smile and give us those self portraits today!" Should be self portrait with light or any kind of photo with light?
