La Sardina: Multiple Love at First Shot

7

Love at first shot…my whirlwind romance with the La Sardina. Who knew that a camera modelled on a sardine can could be so sexy and functional?

From the moment I unpacked the La Sardina I loved it, it is light, yet incredibly rugged for a plastic camera, it is easy to load with film and very low fuss. The lens can be turned in and compressed into the camera body while traveling or storing, a MX (multiple exposure) switch along with both bulb and normal shutter modes.

From my first film the La Sardina has been a breeze to use, a nice clean shutter, easy film winding and a super cute design. I feel that I can just throw (gently of course) the La Sardina in my bag and not worry that it will be harmed at all.

I have an intense love of multiple exposures, so it was great to have a wide-lens camera to try out some multiples with, and the La Sardina does not disappoint! Beautiful clear, bright and even multiple exposures Ahoy!

Adding the La Sardina to my camera collection has been an absolute joy. If I had to make a camera comparison I would make it to my LC-A, with an equal ease of use and great consistent results, the La Sardina is a great choice to make if you don’t want to invest hundreds of dollars in an LC-A, but want the features of an MX switch, B and N modes and 35mm film.

I’ve falling head over heels in love with the La Sardina…and I feel the love is multiple… ahem… I mean mutual.

You can find the La Sardina in the Lomography online store here!

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

    Beijing is a ready-made template for panoramic shots. Tourist baits like The Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace stretch for miles. Those who walk from end to end will have more to say. For instance, that the ground goes on to infinity. Or that they have never been so tired and amazed all at once.
