The Lomography Hipshot Showdown: Your Monochromatic Portrait

2013-02-24 12

Every photographer has had his or her taste of portraiture. And my, it is such a delight to capture someone’s physical beauty in film.

Credits: blackbyrd

We do portraiture in all kinds of feel and form. Some wants them in color, some wants them in black and white. Both are beautiful but admittedly, the two are different when it comes to its dramatic factor.

And in this version of our The Lomography Hipshot Showdown we want to see the best portraits captured in black and white. I’m pretty sure they are plenty so come on and submit!

Competition details:

  • Only portrait Lomographs shot in black and white film will be qualified for the rumble.
  • Three winners will be selected and will receive 10 Piggies each. An award will also be pinned in their LomoHomes.
  • Upload limit: Two per user. Remember that Lomographs linked in the comment box aren’t considered as official entries, only those that are found in the Submissions area.
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height and meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & three tags.)

Good luck, everyone!

    I've made a stupid mistake; I submitted a photo in color, it looks like it's in black and white though...sorry! Can I undo this?
