Whether you love Bratz or a part of Team Barbie, this camera is sure an interesting one to look for!
I bought this odd shaped camera for two reasons. One, I liked the shape and two, i love the pearl-ized paint job with a question mark. And maybe a third reason, it had a roll of film in it. I found it at a thrift store for a few dollars and it is always bonus when these cameras have some film left in them and If it is an exotic film I have never used and outdated, this is even better. Sometimes the film has been partly exposed, either at the thrift store or before someone made it a donation. Sometimes I am surprised by what the strangers shoots, sometimes there are just random shelf shots at the thrift store on the roll….I have to admit I am always a little afraid that if something is illegal and exposed on this film i may have to answer for the other persons bad deed. I had no clue as to who or where this cameras origins where but I wanted it to give it a test.
I brought it home a did some internet searches and found that it also had Bratz written on its body besides the question mark. As it turns out it has something to do with Bratz, the big eyed doll cartoon stuff targeted toward young girls. I am not familiar with this product line but it seems that other than the trademark there is no other relation nor meaning to Bratz: it’s just a point and shoot 35mm camera. These point and shoot fixed focus with flash cameras are great for just snapshot photography. The lens is surprisingly sharp and the built in flash is adequate for snapshot photography. Sometimes you could get a people shot with this kind of non-pretense camera because people do not think you a serious.
The spying globes on Teufelsberg are the not-so-secret insider tip for Berlin’s urban ruins and interesting freak show architecture. Even if you’re reluctant, one thing's for sure: the “Devil’s Mountain” is just plain awesome. The torn-up globe structures of the former military territory are just waiting to be conquered by lomographers… so what are you waiting for?
What’s not to love about the Lomo LC-Wide? If you are a fan of wide angle lenses or Lomography, you probably have one in your collection. The LC-Wide is a powerful camera with many fun features to get creative when shooting. Best of all, all these are already built into the camera.
When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
For this young artist, photography is not just a tally of sights. Set in light or dusk, it is a record of sensations. Shared bliss and awe are as much part of the scenery as the clouds. There is a sense of flight even on land.
Venturing into an area when there's volcanic activity is a feat that can only be either courageous or foolish. One thing's for sure, though, it's the kind of experience that not many people share and—should one escape unscathed, like russellmcbride and his friend—a highly rewarding one at that.
