Let Go, You're Too Old!

10

Ever wonder how cool it will be to be able to see through the innocent eyes of a child? Give them a camera instead of a lollipop.

I loaded my Lomo LC-A+ RL with a roll of film and let my 3 year old boy play with it every time he comes into my study room. I was sure the results will be pretty cute and adheres to most of the Lomographic rules.

I helped him with the MX button to prevent some 200 exposures in a single frame and also had the Colorsplash on. Taught him how to change the colors on the Colorsplash flash and that creates not only more fun for the boy … but also ensures more wild colored photos in the end.

There are a few things to NOT teach the child if he/she is too young. First is the MX button … and next is the rewinding. This will prevent film wastage.

    Give anyone a blob of Play-Doh and you can be sure that he or she, whether a kid or an adult, would be able to transform it into something else - say, an animal figure or a type of food. In Eleanor Macnair's case, however, she makes one of the most excellent renderings of Play-Doh we've seen so far by using them to remake photographs!
