In film photography, monochrome traditionally refers to black or white images. For this challenge, we want you to see the world in one color scheme and give monochromatic a brand new meaning.
To be considered as monochromatic, your photograph has to be dominated with a single color or different variations of one color. Think of your favorite hue (For instance: red) and its many tints (pink) and shades (maroon), then combine them to create an eye-catching and evocative image.
And to make this round even more exciting, we teamed up with PhotoKlassik International to give a lucky winner a one-year subscription of quarterly issues worth 80 EUR as a bonus prize! An independent print magazine about the entire world of analog photography, PhotoKlassik International focuses on bringing inspiration and information. Their English-language magazine is written by photographers for photographers and offers not only book-quality reproductions, but also articles about artistic inspiration, techniques, and equipment. Take a peek at their latest issue here.
Ready to step your game up? Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Experimental Rolls: Shoot with films that are notable for producing a dominant color like redscale films or the LomoChrome Purple. Understand their unique properties to make the most out of them!
- Filter It Out: Pair your favorite camera (or flash) with a colored filter to enliven a rather ordinary scene. (Here's a useful trick if you're an LC-A+ user!)
Each participant may submit up to 10 photographs. This competition serves as the qualifying round for the Game Changers category of our TEN AND ONE Annual Lomography Photo Awards 2019.
