Imitating the Russian Soldier of  Lomography  #1

Imitating the Russian Soldier of Lomography #1

Maya is using my father's precious Zenit E. He bought it before I was born in 1970 from Romania when he was PhD student in France during a car trip from France to the middle East !! my dear father, whom I failed to teach how to use digital cameras, is still convinced that the rendering of the Zenit pictures is better than of the modern SLRs !

mczoum This photo was shot on film. Taken by mczoum with a Lomography Diana F+ (available in our Online Shop) loaded with Lomography Color Negative 400 (35mm) film (available in our Online Shop). These tags describe this photo: hat, camera, lomographer, russia, zenit, and shooting. Date: 2011-06. Time: Afternoon. This photo can also be found in the album A Little of Everything.

    Thanks a lot everyone!! I always wanted to make a portrait with this hat , so the Russian soldier from the famous Lomo poster came first to my mind and tought it goes well with my father’s Zenit that he baught from Romania in 1969! I had this hat in the wonderful city Berlin in 2004 as a souvenir of my very long walk along the famous wall (something I have always wanted to do because of its history).. I got it from a vendor on the sidewalk (there is many) near the Charlie Checkpoint, so think of it when you visit the place anytime in the future !

    Some of the Zenit lenses are very good indeed, they was based on Carl Zeiss Jena famous lens like Sonnar, Biotar etc. and that lenses still kick ass!
