The Lomo LC-A is a compact and reliable camera that you can use during the day or night. Let’s take a look at some tips that will help you make the most out of your LC-A when you shoot during the daytime.
Take advantage of the sun. Take your LC-A with you when you go out for a walk, sunbathe by pool or the beach, or when you stroll around your neighbourhood. Make sure that there’s enough light so that you can enjoy the vivid and saturated colors that come out from your roll of film.
Surround your subject in a beautiful vignette. The LC-A is known for yielding photos with vignetting at the corners. This is a good opportunity for you to showcase your subject with that soft and dark vignette at the edges, while still keeping the focus of the photo sharp.
Double the fun. Shooting doubles is always twice the fun! It’s always good to shoot in bright natural lighting conditions to have some contrast on the images that you come up with on your doubles.
Use flash filters to come up with colorful images. Make your photos pop by using colorful flash filters during the daytime. You’ll be surprised at how magical your photos turn out. Experiment with different colors on various subjects and sceneries for a mixture of fun photos!
