This photo is the product of a fruitful film swap between *dannyedwards* and *blueskyandhardrock*. The first layer was taken by blueskyandhardrock in Los Angeles while dannyedwards captured the second one in Edinburgh, Scotland. A Lomo LC-A and a Nikon FM2 were used to take the images separately, loaded of course with the swapped roll of Fuji T64 Pro film.
The image of the dry branches somewhat complements the seemingly problematic pose of the the male figure in the photo, creating a picturesque and fitting depiction of his emotions. So much drama yes so subtly manifested.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Simeon Smith is a musician who recorded the sounds of our film cameras in action and made these samples available as a free download. We couldn't resist interviewing him about this project and taking a look at some of his photos. Meet the man behind the cams here.

Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next?

I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
