Don’t think, just shoot

Posted at 7:19 am | Filed Under art, film, journal

This LOMO mantra’s been getting easier for me – since I’ve been growing my hair longer and spring breezes are here, I’m having a hard time looking through the viewfinder without my hair getting in the way of the lens or the viewfinder! I shot a roll of some generic $.99 cent store ISO 200 […]

My new plastic favorite, the Vivitar IC 100

Posted at 6:50 pm | Filed Under art, film

The Vivitar IC 100 is rapidly turning into one of my favorite toy cameras. I broke from my usual “100 speed film only rule” and shot this roll on Fuji Superia 400. With the fixed 1/85th second shutter and f/5.6 aperture, I can use all the light sensitivity I can get!

This pic came off the first test roll from my Vivitar IC 100, a $1 plastic camera I picked up recently. It’s pretty standard looking. The insides could come from a LOMO Colorsplash or any number of unremarkable cameras. A simple lens, shutter speed and aperture fixed at 1/100th sec and f/5.6, and cheap enough […]

Chopsticks @ 50mm, Oakland, CA

Posted at 10:45 am | Filed Under art, film

Old print, new scanner. This was taken in Oakland’s chinatown back in 2002 or so. I love the shallow depth of field you get with a slow film, an old mechanical SLR and a 50mm Prime lens.

Gettin’ artsy with my LOMO in low light

Posted at 9:01 am | Filed Under art, film, lomo

I’m always amazed at the LOMO LC-A’s ability to capture vivid colors in low light. Every other camera I’ve tried has given me washed out colors when I extend the shutter speed out in low light. With my LOMO, I load up the slowest film I can find (Lucky 100 when I can find it, […]

LOMO on the street

Posted at 11:45 pm | Filed Under film, lomo

Random LOMOs from my most recent roll of expired Lucky 100 film. Taken around South of Market, San Francisco. My 1991 LOMO is still going strong, after what I figure to be 100 rolls of film shot through it…

Cowboy wedding

I took this back in 2002? I gave the negatives to the mother of the groom and never got around to asking to borrow them back.  My mother had a 4×6 which scanned nicely. LOMO LC-A, Fuji 100 film.
