I have discovered a way that will allow your LC-A+ ( probably work the same on the LC-A ) to do a B setting !! Lets get [Light] painting !!! I don't know if this had been done before. But not that i heard of so hey, i gave it a go!
So, I have been wondering for a while that there must be a way to make my Lomo LC-A+ do a B setting. I thought this because I once held my finger over the little light meter by accident and the shutter stayed opened for longer than it should. I got home today and thought I’m going to figure this out.
I found out after about 10-15 minutes fiddling around that if you put your ISO (or ASA) setting to the lowest and put your finger over the part where the light meter is, you can keep the shutter open for as long as you want ! (considering that you covered the it well enough)
HOWEVER this isn’t enough for me ! So i try putting the ISO (or ASA) setting to a different setting… I’ve put the ISO (or ASA) setting so that the 1600 is in the middle of the little magnifying thing where the light usually gets taken into the meter. This allowed me to hold the shutter open for as long as i want without having to cover up the light meter manually. Therefore allowing me to do light painting !
Now i haven’t had enough time to go and get the film develop yet but try it out, see what you get…..
Lomography – the possibility is endless!
