My Beginning With Lomography

After my friend gave me a Fisheye camera, I began to use it to capture my daily life. Now with the new LC-A+, life will become even more fantastic.

My first camera was the Fisheye , a birthday present from a friend. Although it doesn’t have the double exposure function found in the Fisheye 2, I still love to take it with me when I go on holiday in order to capture the scenes whenever I want.

After playing around with the Fisheye , the camera which I wanted initially was a Holga . However, after reading about the LC-A+ and seeing the photos of this camera from fellow lomographers, I realise I love the vignettes which can be captured with this camera. The photos captured on this camera are also closer to real life and so I figured that it would be more suitable for taking photos daily. Therefore, when I held the LC-A+ with my hands for the first time, I cannot describe how excited I felt. Although finding the right focus is still a problem for me when using this camera, I guess I will be able to master it with further practice. Your valuable advice on how to use this camera will be much appreciated!

Below are some photos which I took with my Fisheye and Fisheye 2 . I really love the effect of double exposure. Don’t think, just shoot!

    I posted this on Saturday but it's relevant to this topic. Way back in 2005 I bought a Holga from the Lomography online store. When it arrived I was a little bit excited. The first time I used it was when I went to visit my parents and I used most of the roll taking shots of my Mum. She'd been ill for a while and felt very low. In my armchair psychology way, I wanted her to feel that she was still beautiful and more than worthy of a photograph. She passed away the next month. Things weren't good....to make matters worse a fire broke out in my flat. Everything was destroyed apart from a handful of CD's, the Holga (a little melted, inside it's box), and the film inside. It's still in there, 6 years later. I'd rather pretend that the images are still on it, rather than know for definite that they've been ruined and will never exist.
