Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls and children of all ages! The Great Lomo LC-A Race is officially underway so you better bring your A-game!
Its been a year in the making. Everyone’s trigger finger is itching to shoot and each team’s Lomo LC-A kits are dying to go out of their comfy box and get some sun shining in. Turn on your GPS device, open up your notebooks to write your sweet nothings and draw Lomo-doodles, feed your hungry camera your favorite film and try to outplay the world. Without further ado, The Great Lomo LC-A Race has officially started!
So for the contestants, some final reminders:
Your first two photos should be a mirror self portrait, and another self portrait with a copy of a daily newspaper
You have two weeks with the camera then you need to send it to your team mate
Keep in mind the Locations, Notebook, GPS and Missions – for more info you can check out the rules again.
How do you make your nighttime photos more colorful and exciting? Try light painting! All it takes is a lighting tool of your choice, a steady surface (or better yet, a tripod) and a camera with a Bulb setting, then you're all set.
