Forget about your go-to color negatives or black and white films. Step out of your comfort zone and try out an experimental roll of film for a change!
There has never been a more exciting time to be an adventurous film photographer than today. With more and more out-of-the-box emulsions being introduced, you will never run out of creative ways to experiment and see the world from a different perspective. For this challenge, we're looking for stunning images shot using unusual and quirky film rolls. Here are some ideas to get you started:
- New Hue: Load your favorite camera with a color shifting film (like our LomoChrome Purple or Lomography Redscale XR 50-200) or cross-process a slide film. Before shooting, think of the film's unique characteristics and how it'll affect the final image.
- Think Texture: Some newer films don't just simply shake up the color palette, they also add an interesting layer to your images like gradients or lightning streaks. How will you incorporate these special effects to make everyday scenarios more eye-catching?
Each participant may submit up to 10 photographs. This competition serves as the qualifying round for the Trial and Error category of our TEN AND ONE Annual Lomography Photo Awards 2019.
In partnership with Folkr, participants from France will automatically qualify to win a Lomo'Instant Automat Cabo Verde + Lenses. Founded in July 2011, Folkr is a lifestyle magazine featuring the best of fashion, music, photo, art, cinema and more.
