The Lomography Hipshot Showdown: Your Monochromatic Portrait Winners Announcement

2013-03-09 14

There are millions of beautiful monochromatic portraits in this Community but only several will stand out.

For a portrait does not only show a face but tells a story. Yes, just like any other photograph as they say but sometimes, a random portrait can tell a lifetime of experiences.

And when you’ve got it in black and white, that’s definitely something else! That’s exactly what we’ve seen in our The Lomography Hipshot Showdown: Your Monochromatic Portrait rumble.

Here we are with our three winners of 10 Piggies each plus an award pinned to their LomoHomes. Congratulations! Such lovely portraits you’ve taken!
