Damn, I was really hoping that these shots would turn out well. I shot this on a beautiful day when the sky was a painting of heavy clouds and the usual blues. Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be.

First of all, the film was subpar. I really love Kodak Elitechrome 400 but this batch that I got from eBay clearly wasn't stored very well. This first roll was very grainy and I am assuming the other would be as well.

Then there's the camera. Don't get me wrong, I am loving the Lomo LC-W but I am only getting used to mine, which I only got two weeks ago. I had no idea how wide it really was. The end result was my subjects looking like they're really far from the camera, even though they were only 1-3 meters away in actuality.

Needless to say, the photos didn't live up to my expectations.

But it's all well, I still love the Lomo LC-W. It's so flexible and powerful for a compact camera. I've made a lot of camera investments (ehem, purchases) this year and so far, this camera has been one of the best I've gotten.

    I know what you mean, but I found that it is an opportunity to get really close to your subject. I am starting to love it the more I understand it.

    first rolls look like that until you realise you must be really close to the object
