There is nothing better than to receive a fun disposable camera as laughable as this! This is quite a camera you would enjoy indeed!
Daddy’s friend (the famous cyanwater) gave me a LOLCAM. Daddy explained to me that it can only be used once, taught me how to use it and let me have lots of fun with it.
The camera is loaded with a roll of 24 exposure film and also it is loaded with some very interesting masks! You will find things like photo frames, words and stuffs. Every 2 frames have the same mask.
To use the camera, you have to hold on to a flash button in front of the camera (thank God my fingers are long enough to reach it!).
Once you have taken a shot, just turn the advance wheel until it stops and you are ready for the next frame.
I would advise to throw away the box that came with it. This is because by not knowing which frames having which mask … it is way more unexpected and fun (that’s what Lomography is all about!).
Once advise … try not to get someone ‘important’ in the ‘WTF’ frame like I did (I got daddy, aka ndroo) in it and he told me there’ll be no more toys for a month or two. :(

A flash here, a flicker there. An afterimage is an optical illusion and reoccurring phenomenon resulting from a brief exposure to a bright light source, such as a camera flash. What's even more fascinating than experiencing this illusion is discovering that your camera is able to mimic its effect!

An Argentinean writer and photographer living in the Pacific Northwest, Lorraine Healy is a long-time fan of plastic cameras and is the author of "Tricks With A Plastic Wonder," a manual for achieving better results with a Holga camera, available as an eBook from Amazon.com.

A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.

I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
