Do you ever shoot with film? Do you ever take a moment away from your precious smartphone to press down on the shutter of a real film camera? Personally, I love to shoot analogue. I love the excitement of getting back a roll of film and never quite knowing what the results will be. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn’t – you never really know but sometimes you get some amazing images out of it. My favourite cameras for experimenting are Lomography cameras. I have been shooting on various forms of LOMO for over 10 years. Recently, I’ve been shooting on a DianaMini, Action Sampler and the La Sardina. The best time to take photos is obviously in the summer – the light is perfect and there is so much more to capture than in the hibernating months of winter. Just sharing a sampling here of my favourite images i have taken as of late. Every time I travel, I try to bring my cameras with me to really capture a different side of my travels.
Shooting on a sunny day is best – you can really capture some amazing images. Flowers photograph amazing with a LOMO camera – a certain nostalgic vibe rings through and just looks incredible.
I also love shooting at night with a coloured flash. Great for capturing your pals in a bar or while out for dinner – you can come up with some amazing images on a night to remember.
Because I love my LOMO cameras so much, especially my new La Sardina, I thought it would be great to partner with Lomography Canada to do a giveaway for my lovely readers. I want you to start shooting analogue this summer and I am going to do so by giving away a La Sardina St. Tropez Fontanette!
Entering is simple! Leave a comment here with your name & email address about why you want to shoot analogue this summer! The contest is open to Canadian readers only. Contest ends on May 24th and will be announced here.
