2014-08-04

Keen eyes, loads of patience, and eagerness to experiment are needed to ace this rumble!

Credits: fotobes

Spotting symmetrical figures naturally occurring in our surroundings sounds like a daunting task but can be quite rewarding once captured brilliantly in a photograph. Images employing the use of reflection and balanced composition are common in this creative Community of ours but we want the best among them to get the spotlight they deserve!

For this rumble, we want everyone to prepare five lomographs showcasing symmetry for a chance to win 10 piggies. Create your winning masterpiece showcasing well-balanced and symmetrical elements with the use of elaborate techniques like exposing both sides (EBS) or using a splitzer. You can also go simple and just use a plain mirror or huge bodies of water to capture the perfect reflection. Just remember: the more symmetrical, the better!

Details:

  • 5 winners of 10 piggies each
  • Maximum of five submissions per user
  • Don’t forget to tag your photos (film, cameras, accessories, and at least three tags). Photos without these tags will not be accepted.
  • Submissions must be taken using an analogue camera. Please keep in mind our symmetry theme.
  • Rumble will run for a week.

Submit your entries now!
