Love At First Lomo: It's Wide, It's Mine


LC-Wide is my first lomo love. I met my LC-Wide last year and I fell in love with it.

I like shooting pictures. When I started my first job, I saved up to buy myself a compact digital camera. I brought it along whenever I traveled. That was few years back.

Last year, I discovered something new. I saw my boyfriend using a cool-looking film camera and I was curious about it. Then, I had a chance to try out his camera. I loved the outcome of the pictures. I decided to get myself a film camera. I was aiming for a film camera which is easy to use.

One day, I saw some really nice pictures and I was amazed by them. Those pictures were taken with an LC-Wide. My heart said “Yes!” but my mind kept saying “No!” because it is kind of pricey. But I got it at last as my birthday present! :)

My first date with the LC-Wide was on a sunny day in a park. I loaded my LC-Wide with Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100 and started my first full frame shot. Not all the pictures turned out good, as the way I expected. But I was satisfied with it.

After a roll of full frame shots, I decided to give it a try on square format. I tried out multiple shots as well.

Trying half frame was my next move. I like half frame shots. Sometimes I can see the connection between the pictures. It seems like the pictures are telling me a story.

Now, I bring my LC-Wide with me almost everywhere I go. Trips without the LC-Wide is incomplete. Sometimes I forget to change the ISO or photo format setting when I shoot. The photos would turn out funny or weird. But it didn’t lessen my love towards my LC-Wide.

The LC-Wide has become my companion and I hope that our relationship will bloom day by day.

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.
