This is one of the hardest film for me to find. In England it always seems to be pretty cloudy and for a lot of my LOMO camera’s iso 400 is just not enough.
Nothing more fustrating than having a big bunch of blurry underexposed images! I have been buying the ISO 800 from Lomography.com itself, but I really want to find some expired stuff, or even a bulk of it for cheap.
To be fair it is pretty sunny today which is nice. Sadly I have too much work to go out.
Also the weather is mental at the moment. It may be sunny right now, but by this afternoon we could have hail (!). Kind of need two of each camera with different film loaded in each. (film photographer problems)
I was convinced that I only got sick form commuting, but I have a sore throat today and I am sneezing!
Hopefully doesn’t get any worse than this. I have had a bit of a nightmare today looking for all my negatives. There are rolls and rolls of film that haven’t been scanned onto my computer, and I really want to find them.
But maybe it is a good thing, I still have enough to work through on my laptop as it is!
I feel like the days have been passing by so quickly.
At work, the website just launched and I have been working in the evenings too since the social media doesn’t really stop after work hours.
To add to that there have been a few glitches at the start which has led to things being held back etc.
I miss my photography! So making a promise to myself to carry a camera to work is a good start. Plus I work so near the Lomo shop, I can get more film developed.
I got a new film SLR from the charity shop a few weeks back. Cannot wait to start using it too!
My lovely boyfriend has fed my Lomography addiction!
This Christmas he got me film and a Pop 9 camera. What makes the present even sweeter, is the fact that he is not a big fan of all my cameras and he still got me one.
I have been really enjoying running my tumblr, LOMO and Cakes & bakes pages. The thing is I keep finding really cool recipes or tips and ideas for lomography, that I have started baking alot and I had to develop 7 rolls of film the other day.
In fact a friend and I chose to not go to London so we could bake red velvet cupcakes today. When did I become a middle aged woman??
We went to the Diwali Celebrations at Trafalgar Square using the LC-A+.
I was really excited as I have always wanted to try out the LC-A+ as I just can’t afford it at the moment. I bought a ticket for Dave too, though he wasn’t that grateful for it!
He isn’t the biggest fan of Lomography, mainly due to me carrying five cameras everywhere we go. So I really wanted him to have a go and get into it.
Typically, the night before we went out for a friend’s leaving do and didn’t get home till 5am. So getting there for 1pm was difficult.
I love the Lomography shop, but always end up being jealous that I don’t have them all! After a little talk through about the camera we headed off.
I have never been to the Diwali Celebrations here, but in Asia they are massive and really colourful. Full of lights and music. So I was really excited to get there.
Although the atmosphere and crowd were great there, it wasn’t what I thought it would be! I think everyone expected there to be more to take pictures of, but it was still pretty good fun.
There were a lot of protests going on and people in Saris, so still quite excited to see the pictures. Probably more so for Dave’s rolls. I think there are a million blurry pictures of me and maybe a few of an elephant statue.
Will put them up as soon as I get them. Got them developed at the lomolabs so will have to see how it goes.
