By the Wey #28

From a series of shots taken along the River Wey, in Surrey, UK.

This was a really fun outing, as I was shooting alternately with the slow, cumbersome, unpredictable yet fascinating Lomo Lubitel 166B medium-format camera alongside my c.1997-purchased Nikon F50 35mm SLR with zoom lenses, built-in lightmeter and all the bells and whistles (but in fully manual mode, natch). The contrast between these two cameras is staggering, but they're equally fun to shoot with, and both yielded satisfactory results on this occasion (despite some hassles with a sticky shutter release and inaccurate close-range focusing on the Lomo).

You could argue, of course (and I would agree), that the Nikon is not particularly 'lomo', but it's 100% analogue, so I don't feel too bad about including these shots on this site - I know you're a very forgiving community! ;-)

We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!
