This March will bring Lomography Austin’s very first SXSW, and we want to show off your analogue skills! Do your photos of the Lone Star state exemplify the 10 Golden Rules? Join the rumble and find out!
Thousands of tourists and musicians will flood into the capitol of Texas this March for SXSW – one of the world’s largest music festivals. There will be plenty of opportunity for Lomography buffs to exercise their analogue knowledge. But what about the hundreds of newcomers who have no idea what Lomography is all about? We want to use your photos to teach the teeming crowds of tourists and locals how to get close, shoot from the hip, and forget about the rules! Submit your photos of downtown Austin, east side food trailers, local music venues and your favorite lonestar spots. We’ll pick ten winning photos that exemplify the 10 Golden Rules to exhibit during SXSW. What a great opportunity to share your love for Texas and Lomography!
So, what are the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography?
1. Take your camera everywhere you go.
2. Use it anytime, day and night.
3. Lomography is not an interference in your life, but part of it.
4. Try the shot from the hip.
5. Approach the objects of your lomographic desire as closely as possible.
6. Don’t think
7. Be fast.
8. You don’t have to know beforehand what you captured on film…
9. …afterwards, either.
10. Don’t worry about any rules.
