Weapon of Choice: The Lomo LC-A+

Why is this camera your Weapon of Choice?

It’s so small that you can carry it wherever you go and the photos that originally got me into Lomography were photos taken on it so it will always be special to me. I love its strong contrasts and vignettes. It’s so simple too that you don’t have to think about technical details. Probably my favourite thing about the camera (apart from its awesome shutter noise) is its ability to double expose with a simple button/ The double exposures from my LC-A+ have been my favorite from any camera. Cross processing film from the LC-A+ always reveals incredible results

If ever you were told to have background music while taking Lomographs, what type of music would you prefer? Why?

Ah, well this all depends on the mood I’m in and the type of photos I am taking. :) For example a sunny day, double exposing things with flowers, would be chilled out music : The Postal Service / The Shins / Frank Ocean / Mariachi El Bronx / James Blake. However, if it’s freezing and I’m trying to get some night shots, more ‘lively’ music may be necessary just like Sleigh Bells / Skream / N.W.A / SBTRKT.

But if there was one song which sums up my love for Lomography, it would be ‘The Shins – New Slang’

It could be your favourite film emulsion, a cheap plastic toy camera or the most fun accessory you have and they are your Weapon of Choice! Want yours to be seen here next week? Then just drop us a line at jason.delosreyes@lomography.com and you’ll get to show everyone what your Lomo snaps are made of!
