As I mentioned in the previous post, the film bug has recently bit me again, and it feels pretty good so far. I’ve really wanted an iphone, but mostly just to take ‘cool’ pictures with it. I started thinking more about that, and thought why not just shoot real film with a cool camera? Yea, you have to wait a bit to see what you got, but that’s part of the excitement and joy of film, no? After combing the interwebs for different 35mm and medium format cameras a few nights ago, I came across this little guy. It’s got a reputation that I’ve known about for a while, but for some reason, I was into more ‘real’ cameras last time I was looking to buy. Though this one comes from Lomo, which should be called a toy camera company, the LC-A is not priced as a toy, and doesn’t really perform like one either, but it is very easy to use. I guess I’m a bit of a sucker for a special edition, and a good sale, and both of those came together one night on my ipad on the sofa that caused me to pull the trigger and swipe the card on it.
Anyway, rambling complete now. Here are a few images from the first roll I ran through it. I started out at home with my beauty, then headed out for a quick shoot at a nunnery in Saigon (hence all the religious imagery), where a colleague was getting acupuncture by nuns and writing about it for the magazine we work for. The images shouldn’t need much more explanation. Just have a quick look and hope you enjoy.
