I think the Lomography Pop 9 takes beautiful passport pictures! Haha! But seriously, this plastic camera takes special pictures.
There are few shots in my first roll which actually look like the big head shot which are meant and perfectly fit to work as a passport picture. Then, I still enjoy the pictures taken by this small light weight toy. The built in flash is so strong and it’s cool to even take pics in dark, at night, and indoors.
My first roll of my Lomography Pop 9 was really fun. A lot of cropped head pictures, or the object happens to be too far away, or shoot in the dark area forgetting to put the flash on, or the worst, the battery runs out. The pictures, turns out something really different as there are 9 lens , there will be 9 pictures appear on the same frame. It’s unique to me. And it’s fun! You really can’t expect the outcome, and this what makes this Pop9, special.
