The Future is Analogue Rumble pt 2: The Return of Colours, Overtones, Nuances, Shades & Real Beauty


The future is definitely Analogue! Subtle or utterly flambuoyant, We celebrate the different shades of colour, hue and natural beauty only analogue photography can provide to the world! Huge Piggy Prizes are at stake for this rumble series so be sure to put out some colour for everyone!

Whether you’re shooting a drab London street on a rainy day or overdosing on psychedelic hues in a carnival, colors play an important part in analogue photography. It could something as simple as picking the lady in red winking at you in the crowd, or just shooting and over-exposing slide film to drive the saturation up, up, up when you cross-process it! So which do you prefer? Do you like better the subtle nuances and realistic skin tone of negative film, or the wild, guns-blazing super saturation of X-Pro? Tell us in pictures! The best entry gets 75 mouth-watering Piggies while the next 4 runners up each get 35 big ones!

  • Prize(s): 1 grand prize winner of 75 Piggies, 4 runners-up of 35 Piggies. And there’s more! We’re also giving out 5 Piggies each to 20 users with selected photos! Finally, all winners will receive a "special award badge”: straight to their LomoHomes

    I cannot submit. I click on 'submit photos' next to comment this article and all I can click on is other peoples submissions. What am I doing wrong?

    i have a question for any of you processing-savvy types out there; most of my submissions for this competition look as if they were cross-processed, but they weren't. they are just regular color negative film and they were developed in a local lab here in phnom penh. i've found that the colors in my resulting prints from labs here often have exaggerated or extra-saturated look to them. any guesses as to what the labs here are doing?
