I can’t remember how I stumbled upon the Lomography website, twitter or a blog post perhaps? but I am sooooo glad to have found it. These super sweet, chic, and humorous analogue cameras have made my heart beat just a little faster. Ok, who am i kidding, a lot faster! I want to grab a bunch of 35mm film and start shooting.
Although I think digital cameras are amazing I’ve found there’s a lack of spontaneity. Especially since you can erase all the bad/wonderfully memorable pics and keep posing till there’s one deemed “perfect” . How many epic moments have been lost!? (even though sometimes that delete button is a godsend) and the suspense of waiting to see what hilarious/beautiful/cringe-worthiness you’ve captured is part of the fun. Also all your snaps aren’t stuck on your computer forever! Something I’m definitely guilty of.
I cannot wait to get my hands on one of these beauties! or two, or three…
Fisheye No.2 – Python
Diana Mini & Flash – Leopard
La Sardina Camera & Flash – Fischers Fritze
Diana Mini JIYU – Freedom
La Sardina Camera & Flash – Belle Starr
