Quickie Tipster: Burnt pics? Give them a personal and fun touch!

Your pics got overexposed? Let your artistic vein run wild!

Just yesterday I used for the first time my LC-A instant back. I wanted to give them a colour touch with the colorsplash flash and, to avoid them to get overexposed, I regulated my LC-A’s ISO, but it turned out not to be enough…

After taking a couple of pics and waiting and waiting and waiting, there were no faces appearing, just silhouettes. The third time I got the hang and they got better exposed with and without flash.

When I decided to pick up these burnt shots and keep them, suddenly an idea came to my mind! And yes… That’s right! I took the first pen on the desk and I decided to draw the faces myself. So far, they’ve just been eyes, nose and mouth, but I already have some more ideas for the next ones.

Here are the results

You know: before throwing away a burnt photo, let your imagination run wild!
LOMO ON!
