I didn’t really have any fish stuffed toys so I just borrowed some toys from the Home for the Aged for this shoot.
My lovely living room.
I love it when color co-incidences occur!
LC-Wide x Kodak 400
This was soon after Lomography launched the LC-Wide.
The camera is sort of a hybrid of the classic LC-A & LC-A+. The main thing about this (as the name suggests) camera is that it’s wide! The wide angle lens ensures you capture a lot more than most cameras. But what I loved about this camera is that in addition to full frame, you could choose to shoot square frame or half frame. I obviously have different cameras that do all three of these but to have all three in one is pretty amazing. It has a light meter so you can shoot in almost any light, two distance settings only so you don’t have to worry too much about setting the focus right & of course it is compatible with the famous Krab (underwater housing) to take pool shots!
Also, the viewfinder is pretty inaccurate (parallax error)! A lot more than what you see in it ends up in the photo, I learnt that the hard way in photo #7. I was not planning to get any of the wall & I was planning to cut the girl off at the chest, & look how it ended up! I really should have leaned over the wall. But I do love that shot otherwise. I loved how her t-shirt matched the parked Chetak (it’s like India’s Vespa!)
Also, this has a glass lens just like the LC-A (unlike most other cameras I use) so it’s sharp. It’s very clear, plus it has great contrast & vignetting. Also it’s compact. A great all-round film camera for those who don’t want to have too many.
But I think know that the light meter of the LC-Wide I was using was a little off, all of the shots came out a little over exposed (too many blown out highlights in all these photos!) That was a bit of a bummer.
Check in here next week to see another roll with the LC-Wide, this time cross processed. x
