In keeping with the Much Love Monday tradition (because why not start even the mundane with a positive attitude?):
A very generous friend of mine lent me his gorgeous diana f+ lomo camera and I am certainly in love. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from today, more of which you can see on my flickr set.
I used a 35mm backing, which exposes the entire film, including the sprockets. As the photos were not developed accordingly, the crops were different than I anticipated. It's the thrill of surprise and analog magic that makes lomo so wonderful to me. That and the psychedelic colors of course.
(not sure why my scanner has developed a streaking effect lately)
Title: Her Name is Ava Marie
(Can't wait to double-expose this same shot with one of Amelia.)
Um, when I learned what could be done with double exposure, I realized I must buy a lomo camera of my own, asap.
Flower colors come out so trippy!
(not a double exposure actually)
I recognize that flowers and babies are rather cliche subjects. For good reason; they damned photogenic! And look magical when captured with the diana f+.
I am excited to see what can be done with lomo and architectural photography. Stay tuned: not only do I get to borrow this beauty for another week, but color film is on clearance!
Thanks again for joining me, I hope you enjoy lomo as much as I do,
