My Spectacular Christmas Gift, the LCA+ Krab!

1

One of the best gifts I received last Christmas was an accessory to the LC-A+ that allows me to take pictures underwater, better known as the Krab. Check out these cool pool photos we took, thanks to the Krab!

LCA+ Krab

As we all know Christmas is a time of joy and sharing with family, but there’s the fun part for kids and not so kids like me lol, that is the part where you get presents … When we were kids we wrote letters to Santa Claus with a list of all the things you have dreamed and hoped it will give us, so after “sent” the letter only we had left to wait on Christmas Day to see if we had arrived some of the things on the list . As we get older that changes, you stop asking for gifts and people who love surprise you, as in my case this year made me very happy giving me the krab! For those who do not know is a sub marine carcass for LC-A … anyway I was so happy to have her in my hands, I could not believe it, I kept jumping and smiling like a little girl, even take pictures with my cell phone to show the world my precious gift:

The first thing I did was open the box carefully and see how they placed the LC-A in it, and brings no manual I had to learn for myself, although I must admit it is not so difficult when I understood started immediately to think what kind of pictures could get, how, when and where … just wanted it to be the next day to go to my sister’s house with a swimming pool and so I could play with my new accessory the “krab” … it took a couple of days before we can go visit her, but when it was time first thing I did was put a roll in the LC-A + and place on krab to take all the pictures I could.
Here I show you some of the first photos I took:

… so every time I go somewhere with a pool the krab always goes in my bag…

The following photos are of another occasion where we had fun posing with my family:

This accessory is too funny, you can take great photos of your friends or family posing or spontaneous. It is also safe so you’re not afraid to put the camera in the water … And of course like all things Lomography is conspicuous for its design and color so you do not pass unnoticed.

The Lomo LC-A+ is known worldwide for its amazing features: automatic exposure, extended ISO range, and multiple and long exposure capabilities. Get your own Lomo LC-A+ now!

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
