We All Live in a Yellow Submarine, Yellow Submarine, Yellow Submarine...Rumble!

2012-06-22 9

In honor of Sir Paul McCartney’s birthday week, we decided to have a yellow-themed rumble, which is also reminiscent of one of The Beatles’ most popular songs (in case you haven’t noticed it yet). While we know, we know, finding a Yellow Submarine just lying around and waiting for you to take a photo of it is well, quite impossible. We’ll make things easier for you. Read on to find out how you can score some big fat piggies!

Okay so you want to get some piggies? Well if you have a penchant for anything yellow, then here’s your chance! Given that Sir Paul McCartney will forever remain larger than life given his status as one of the world’s most iconic musicians, we want you to also go big with this rumble. The brighter, the bolder, the yellow-er the better whether it’s through your choice of film, diving into a field of sunflowers, or miraculously finding a yellow submarine, we want you to send in your best yellow-hued photos!

Ready? Here are the details:

  • Prize(s): 3 winners of 15 piggies each. All winners will receive a special award badge straight to their LomoHomes
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated. Please keep in mind our YELLOW theme
  • Upload Limit: 3 photos
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)

    This made me realize that most of my shots are depressing to look at.

    Running Away From God: A Rumble with Astronautalis

    "The overarching theme is seeing people in adverse conditions take matters into their own hands and still find the energy to go dancing or fall in love or create art," Astronautalis said of his new album. We found that pretty inspiring, so we teamed up with him for a Rumble competition based on that idea.

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
