LomoMission 66: Double Trouble


No this isn’t another multiple exposure competition. Instead, you’ll have to scour approximately 1.9% of the world population to get a chance to shoot twins! They aren’t exactly endangered so you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding them.

Twins are definitely trouble. Ask Hugh Hefner and he’s sure to tell you about how the Shannon Twins misbehaved so much that they had to be kicked out of the Playboy mansion. But amidst all these, twins still hold sway over us as they possess an unmistakable appeal. This could be the sheer eeriness of seeing double, or the mere wonder and awe of towards genetics and science.

So for this month, your Mission is to shoot some twins. They could be your childhood friends whose names you kept mixing up, or event he Olsen twins if you have access to them. Please note that we’re not looking for multiple exposure shots but photos of actual twins themselves. We know that this challenge is a bit difficult but the prize is definitely worth the trouble as we’re giving Piggies enough to twin prizes as well – Fisheye 1 Blue Pearl and Red! The winners will also receive a special award badge straight to their LomoHomes!

Competition Details:

  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated
  • Upload Limit: 5 photos
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags) for prize eligibility.
    *By submitting your photos to this rumble, you allow Lomography.com to use your submitted photos for promotional purposes.

    @ritamiguel better fill in something, otherwise it will get you disqualified.
    I am a dizygotic twin myself, so non-identical, which is a bummer. It is very difficult to get identical twins, all 3 pairs I know live far away currently.

    I know a few pairs of twins. I had a great time doing this photo shoot. The twins are photographers themselves and were more than interested in helping.
