Anyone who knows me knows I have a love for film shooting. I love the process, the texture, the style, the look and feel of the photos...and the anticipation of getting the negatives back. I tend to shoot on either my Hasselblad or Canon AE-1 for serious film shooting...but recently I have become fascinated by the Lomography branded cameras. I have a Holga, LomoKino, Fisheye and a recently purchased La Sardina.
The La Sardina is based on an old sardine can. It takes 35mm film and has a side-flash attached to it. As with other lomography cameras, the imperfections are fascinating and a surprise. Though mass-produced, each hach have their own unique character. Light leaks, vignetting, lens characteristics...and all of this is further enhanced by the choice of film that you use. For the photos below, I used a roll of Lomography standard 400 film.
So far, the test came out well and I'm looking forward to more adventures with the La Sardina.
This morning I am heading out for a Lomography inspired shoot. The majority of this shoot will be on film and my 5D MK II will be my backup. I'm excited to take the LomoKino out for for a serious shoot. Gonna grab some video with that camera and some stills with the Holga 120N. The main camera for the shoot will be the Hasselblad 501.
Another fun thing is that I will be using expired film for this shoot. Could produce some interesting results. The film for today is: Kodak Portra VC 400 120, Ilford Delta 400 120 , Fomapan 400 120 and Agfa 800 35mm. Can't wait to share the results...but that may be a few days to get all of it posted cause I have to develop film.
