Lomography CN 800 ISO + SLR Camera: Perfect Combination for a Super Bright Day

3

Get your hands on an old SLR camera, then grab some Lomography CN 800 films, and be off on your way to the nearest park!

I recently got my hands on a very old but mint condition SLR camera, so I decided to take it out for some test shots with Lomography CN 800 ISO loaded in it!

Surprisingly, just my luck, it was a very bright day with clouds everywhere but no sun, and so, no yellow-ness in the sky!

What you must remember always is to adjust the shutter speed to the minimum speed and take pictures very carefully. Also, try as hard as possible not to shake the camera too much.

Nice colors caught on by the trusty 800 film!

Go crazy shooting, or even go abstract!

Get lucky, even! Gardens are full of surprises! Here, I caught something too.

Do remember one thing: if you shoot when the conditions are too bright, the white in the photos will result an empty white space, like in this photo. The clouds are too white!

If you love beautiful clouds as much as I do, then please don’t forget to wear nice black sunglasses. By doing this, whenever you shooting upwards towards the sky, the light doesn’t hit your eyes as much. So, you end up being more stable—no more shakes, resulting in perfect shots of the sky!

I hope you found this inspiring!

So, go on, hit the nearby garden already!

    if your using 800ISO film for daylight photography you will need to invest in a light-meter and daylight film (100-200) you'll notice much better results. Even shooting at 1/500 f/22 with a 800ISO film in a super bright sunny day will just result in super over exposure there wouldn't be cloud definition at all. but i admire your passion to the film i would regard 800+ films as safety films and they always deliver :)

    well true that i totally agree, but experimenting with a very good shutter speed enhances only the results :)
