Lucky SDH (120, 100 iso) user-review

Lucky loves Holga, Holga loves Lucky!

Lucky loves Holga, Holga loves Lucky!

After a few months of colour xpro’d madness, I decided to give black and white a go. I check what film was available at the Lomography shop and when I saw that there was a film called Lucky I couldn’t resist to get a few rolls. With such a name, nothing could go wrong! And I was right: As soon as I got it, I loaded my Holga and went for a walk in the cold November rain with little hope of shooting anything decent given the light conditions, but I was so impatient to start shooting that I thought, what the hell! I might get lucky…And I did! All of a sudden, out of the middle of nowhere a group of surrealist majorettes appeared parading out of the blue and without thinking it for a second I started shooting away…And oh boy! you can’t imagine my joy when I got the results.

It’s amazing what this little film can do in spite of poor light: what was a lousy day turned out in beautiful gray tones in the pics. In my opinion the softness of this emulsion is enhanced by the magic of the plastic lense: I’m just in love with the blurry touch and vignetting. It’s also highly recommendable for portraits.
