My Photo of the Year 2011

Credits: mephisto19

I had some LomoMeetings throughout 2011 and I hope there will be more. One LomoWalk I had with Manja in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Doing a lot High Quantity Multiple Exposure (HQME) in 2011, my glass lens Holga was loaded with Lomography Redscale XR. It was a sunny day and we walk along the water (the river Waal) when I wanted to get, following Golen Rule Number Five, as close as possible to the water. So i went down some stairs and saw Manja standing there. I did framing with that one to have the sun behind her head, but as you can see, the film has some light leaks that confuse a bit and make the impression, the sun is in the upper left part.
I took another photo with a different camera (Ricoh 500G), but without framing. It is still a good photo, but not as good as the redscale version.

In 2011 I tried more often to work with the sun and directly place it behind the subject:

    I'm also a fan of shooting into the sun, silhoutetting some object or other, especially with redscaled film - love the fiery effects! Great shots.
