Weapon of Choice: Lomography CN 100 35mm film
Tell us more about yourself and what you do.
Hi! I’m Cécile, aka La Fille Renne, a film photographer from Lyon, France. I am 26 years old and in my job I do a lot of animal osteology. I love natural science, like osteology, zoology, ecology, etc. I also like selling plushies that I make, post-rock, tea, Cervidae, traveling, and body modifications. Film photography has an important place in my life.
Why is the Lomography Color Negative 100 your Weapon of Choice?
The Lomography CN 100 35mm film is my Weapon Choice because it’s one of my favorite films. The 100 ISO means low grain and good light, so it’s my perfect companion for summer. And summer is my favorite season to take pictures because all is very luminous and colorful.
Any memorable experiences you’ve had while using this film?
The last summer, I have documented two amazing things with this film: a road trip along the Costa Brava in Spain, and a wedding. It was the wedding of my friend Alexcetera, and I was the photographer of this event. I took every picture with film cameras and a lot of Lomography films. We did a photo shoot at the calanques of Toulon. It was very stressful, but probably my favorite shooting ever, with two beautiful people in a perfect place.
The road trip was amazing too. During thoses three days, we did 1,000 km trip along the coast from Montpellier to Barcelona. To document my trip, I took pictures with a Canon AE-1 Program loaded with Lomography CN 100 and my new Lomo LC-A+.
Would you recommend this film to other Lomographers? If yes, to whom do you have in mind?
Yes, of course! It’s a very good film to use in every situation. The colors are very well-preserved and it’s not expensive. It’s a film for everyone.
When using this, what are you favorite subjects to photograph and why?
As I said, probably everything during the summer: road trips, portraits, everyday life situations.
Any tips or tricks with using your Weapon of Choice?
I just recommend to not use it in poor lighting conditions.
Any last words?
Thanks to Woden, Alexcetera, Quentin, Spooky Valentine, Hélène, and my sister who are on the pictures. Thank you Lomography and thank you Eunice Abique!
