The Great Lomo LC-A Race Missions: Stage Seven


With this round’s Great Lomo LC-A Race Mission, you’re going to need all the night you can get so better pack a sturdy tripod or an improvised beanbag!

All of the previous missions didn’t exactly necessitate any future planning. If you’re just walking along and see a scene that you can use, you just shoot. Not today! For our Seventh Mission for The Great Lomo LC-A Race, you’re going to need a tripod, some surface to balance the camera or some unbelievably steady hands! We want to see nightscapes and long exposures. The longer the better! No matter how normal your hood might seem in the morning, it will look stunning at night, bathed in an eerie glow. What about the LC-A+’s lightmeter you ask? Well, you can have it calculate your exposure time or you can just cover it and you got yourself a DIY bulb mode! The winning photo will be rewarded with 50 Piggy Points to be distributed evenly to all your team members (5 Piggy Points each).

Meet our Race Jury and read up on further race clarifications!

  • Prize(s): 50 Piggy Points split to members of the team with the winning photo (or photo set)

    Hey Ron or Jury members,

    I forgot to include my photo locations when I first uploaded my photos and entry into the contest. I just made edits to the locations and added them.

    Will adding them late effect my chances of winning?
