The first time I’m using this film is on my Canon Prima Junior DX. I’m excited to try out the film as this is my first time using a monochrome film.
I actually tried the film when I’m in Kuala Lumpur for work interview. So I decided to give it a try during a bloggers’ lousang session. ‘Lousang’ is a ritual done by the chinese before the Chinese New Year to bring good luck and wealth.
As you can see, I actually overexpose my photos with the present of flash. My camera is a point and shoot so the flash goes off automatically in dark areas. I like the details in the film. My friends are excited to have their photos taken too.
I got to meet a lot of bloggers that night and Lomography was discussed that night, too! It’s really fun to share the analogue knowledge, and spread the lomo love as well!
The photos that were taken turned out great with the right exposure. Only one photo was a bit underexposed as the flash did not go off. Having knowledge of correct exposure will help you produce your desired quality.
For the rest of the roll, I decided to take photos outdoors in the daylight. The outcome is much better than nighttime. This is my hometown, Kuching. I went to various places like the Sunday Market, Main Bazaar, and at home. I love the life in this laid back city and the film represented my hometown perfectly with the fine grain and details.
I tried the film at different times of the day and I found out that daytime and without flash produces the best results from the film. If you like what you see then you should try Lady Grey too!
