    Analogue Girl About Town: DIY Filters for Bokeh Shapes

    This week on Analogue Girl About Town, I thought I’d show you some of the nighttime bokeh photos I've taken of the LA skyline from some of the best spots in the city and write a tutorial on how to make homemade bokeh filters.

    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.

  • BelAir Test #2

    shared by blueskyandhardrock on 2012-12-20

    I am really not very happy with the BelAir camera and am kinda regretting that I bought it. Not only did the physical camera fall apart on me a few hours after I took it out of the box but the lenses are also not very good. I like the idea of it's format flexibility, though, and I might buy some of the glass lenses... maybe I can get better results then...
