Seagull 4B I

5

Have some fun with this cool vintage Seagull TLR and discover the tricks that you can try with it!

Seagull 4B-I is a budget TLR camera. It has lots of cool features such as bulb mode long exposure, double exposure, and fully manual control so that you can play with shutter, aperture and also focusing. This cool camera takes any 120 medium format film and produce awesome detail picture.

Some tricks that you can try with this camera is double exposure – double exposure of the same picture will have some blurry dreamy effect which could bring the Holga feel. Besides that, the cool double exposure trick can be used to capture fireworks and combine few fireworks in a picture. This camera is also equipped with shutter release screw and you could use the shutter release cable for steady long exposure. Try cross-processing with slide film, and you’ll see that the image is sharp and has saturated colors. Other than that, you could also try to use the biggest aperture to take picture and it will have a very smooth depth and even spinning depth. You could also use the mechanical self timer function for group picture with you inside the picture.

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week.

Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

    Solo Biking Routes: Ubud in Bali, Indonesia

    Have you all watched "Eat, Pray, Love"? I was inspired by Julia Roberts, who rode a bicycle in that movie, so I decided to rent one and try it myself! This happened two years ago but I still remember my biking route. To all of you who haven't been to Ubud, I think you should visit the place and try to go around in a bicycle!
