Damn, I was really hoping that these shots would turn out well. I shot this on a beautiful day when the sky was a painting of heavy clouds and the usual blues. Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be.

First of all, the film was subpar. I really love Kodak Elitechrome 400 but this batch that I got from eBay clearly wasn't stored very well. This first roll was very grainy and I am assuming the other would be as well.

Then there's the camera. Don't get me wrong, I am loving the Lomo LC-W but I am only getting used to mine, which I only got two weeks ago. I had no idea how wide it really was. The end result was my subjects looking like they're really far from the camera, even though they were only 1-3 meters away in actuality.

Needless to say, the photos didn't live up to my expectations.

But it's all well, I still love the Lomo LC-W. It's so flexible and powerful for a compact camera. I've made a lot of camera investments (ehem, purchases) this year and so far, this camera has been one of the best I've gotten.

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!
