I bought a Lomography 800 ISO film this winter, just to try it out. As I put it in my LC-A, I found out that the ISO settings reach to 400. I got a bit frustrated, although I still hoped that the film could come out well. And actually, it did!
The reason I bought a Lomography 800 ISO film was, that I wanted to shoot pictures in gloomy places. Before that I always shot photographs with 200 ISO films, which aren’t made for shady places. So, as I finally got my film in my LC-A I noticed, that my ISO settings start at 25 ISO and end at 400 ISO, not like the LC-A+. I got a bit desperate, but I still wanted to shoot pictures, so I just thought “Whatever.” I set the ISO on 400 and began photographing.
After developing the film and first saw the photos, I couldn’t believe my eyes. They came out great! Most of the pics had a light red touch. But not like a redscale film. I don’t know if it’s because of the overexposure or the lens, but it’s a wonderful effect.
I now know, that mixing ISOs can lead to magical photographs. Try it out!
