The Shot Rider

2011-12-28 26

Enough walking and shooting! Since we bought a new bike, we thought it will be cool if we can have 2 hobbies combined together. Let’s ride and shoot!

What do you need:

  • A bike
  • Camera strap (to prevent your camera from slipping off your hand)
  • Good biking skill (with one hand, or two off the handle!)
  • Wide angle camera like LC-Wide
  • Courage!

Try to use a higher ISO film like 400 and 800. It will make sure that you capture a clear shot while you are biking fast.

These pictures were taken during sunset time around 6pm during the golden hour:

When you feel tired biking, just stop aside and start experiment with your flash and bike lights!

The Lomo LC-Wide boasts the newly-developed 17mm Minigon Ultra-Wide Angle lens. This 35mm camera wonder is the perfect companion for your photo expeditions. It produces eye-catching splashes of colour with astonishing saturation and contrasts with the added versatility of 3 different formats. Open up to a new photographic experience with the LC-Wide, available in our Shop.
