A Positive Instax Rumble

18

Introduced a year ago, the instax cameras have quickly become a hit among Lomographers – but what have you shot during the last couple of months?

“Yes” seems to be the word that has been hitting the headlines lately, except for President Obama and his campaign slogan, “yes we can” – Jim Carrey has also been saying a lot of “yes” lately in his new movie, Yes Man ! But what does this have to do with instax cameras, or Lomography for that matter?

It turns out that except for saying “yes” in his movie Carrey and his girlfriend Zooey Deschanel also like to take photographs and not just any photographs – they can be seen having fun with an instax camera!

What about you? How have you spent the first weeks of 2009? Hopefully with a “yes” attitude and lots of instax snapshots! If yes(!), here is your chance to prove to others that life is good, and that by saying “yes” one come a long way!

Details:

  • 10 picture upload limit – only Instax cameras allowed!
  • 3 winners get 5 positive piggies
  • Minimum Dimensions: At least 768px either width or height
  • By submitting your photos to this rumble, you allow Lomography.com to use your submitted photos for promotional purposes.

    My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.
