Fuji Reala, for all things natural


I love photos that capture a natural feel, color, and clarity. If you feel the same, let me recommend Fuji Reala.

When I began with Lomography, Fuji Reala was the film that my local lab stocked. I guess I began using it by chance… I quickly saw what this film was capable of. I like to capture bright, yet natural colors; and whether we are talking skin tones, grass, skies, water or neon lights, I’ve gotten great results with this film.

This film works a treat together with a Lomo LC-A. Make sure you use that light meter to it’s full potential! Don’t be scared to hold that shutter button down for a minute and a half in what seems like total darkness! You will be amazed what you will capture, great color saturation has resulted for me, time and time again.

I particularly love the way this film draws out green; grass and trees always seem so lush. If you are using this film in a camera with fixed exposure time, you will need to take care, it is a 100iso after all! Go for a bright sunny day, or be brave and push things a little with the bulb setting. My choice is the LC-A, let that light meter do it’s magic with a great film.

    What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed?

No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
