Daytrip to Yilan – Xinliao Waterfall on LC-A+.


I kind of wish I had picked a film with much stronger contrast to use on the LC-A+ but that’s not to say I don’t love these pictures. It was in the middle of July when we went and painfully hot, but the nearer we were to the waterfall (新寮瀑布), the cooler it got so I guess the light tones of this film do reflect our happy, breezy moods after all.

P.S. I can’t believe we are so close to the end of 2012, December totally flew by!

Recently I’ve had a few advance/rewind issues with my cameras – which makes perfect sense, since they are either toys or vintage – that I know no way of eliminating. Most times it’s the case of my film deciding not to advance for no reason and usually I simply rewind the film a little, taking new pictures over old ones. They turn into happy accidents of frame shifts and double exposures, which can sometimes give a regular picture a bigger story, I think.

Lomo LC-A+.

Did anyone notice that I added a button for the Lomo LC-A+ on my sidebar? :)

I’ve been saving up religiously on Lomography piggies and was finally able to purchase it for less than USD60 the weekend before my birthday in June. The LC-A+ has been on my wishlist for a long, long time but it’s difficult to justify paying the original price, which is three times my budget for any camera purchase.

I was so excited to see how my LC-A+ pictures will turn out that I loaded it with a 12-exposure film (it requires too much patience to finish up a 36-exposure roll). Anyway, it only takes 12 exposures to have a mix of the well-focused, the badly-focused, the multiple exposures. I do have quite a few thoughts on the camera after this test roll but I shall share them when I update the Film Camera Guide. Can’t wait to finish up my third roll of film on the LC-A+!

Accidental Double Exposures.

I’ve had a roll of film in my Konica C35MF for months but gray winter days kept the camera on my shelves. When I picked it up again a couple of weeks ago, the battery was waning and turned two pictures into accidental double exposures. That’s our resident puppy (that belongs to my housemate), Mimi, and the view from my work table.
