Newbie Rumble - Try A Tipster

2011-04-26 21

Hello Newbies! After three successful newbie rumbles we launched in the last year, we are excited to announce newbie rumble number four: Try a Tipster!

Credits: mephisto19

Lomography is a community of sharing, not only photos and the analogue love, but also tips & tricks, how to get special effects, how to experiment with photography and to fulfill the ten prophecies of an analogue future.

For this rumble we want you to look through those tipsters but that is of course not all. Try one or more tips and tricks and upload up to five of your best results. Please also add a link to the tipster you have used in the photo description. Enjoy exploring!

As this rumble requires time, you will have some. Five weeks from now on to read a tipster, shoot, develop the films and upload them to your Lomohome. And also the prize will be a pleasure. The lucky winner will get a Diana Mini!. Two runners up will get 5 Piggy points transferred to their piggy bank.

For this rumble we are happy to have mephisto19 back as guest judge, who already judged the earlier newbie rumbles.

If you have questions, please check the FAQ

Keep in mind:

  • One winner will get a Diana Mini camera, two runners up will get 5 piggy points each.
  • Upload limit: 5
  • Meta data must be filled out (Location, three tags, camera, film) and for this rumble also a link to the tipster that has been used
  • No digital manipulation
  • Newbies only (not longer registered than six month from the start of the rumble)

    Can we try more than one tipster? As we have an upload limit of 5 could we in theory do 5 different tipsters? Or can we only use a single tipster?

    you can try as many tipsters as you want, but please add a link to the tipster in the description of the photo and upload only five photos in total. a tipster is a lomographic tip or trick you find in the magazine section... enjoy

    Trusty Bags for Trusty Cameras

    We spend copious amounts of time stalking camera forums and researching specifications that "hunter" seems a more fitting term than "collector." And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.
