So I have had a Lomography Pop 9 camera in gold more or less since I started analogue photography and although I initially used it loads, because of the very distinctive look it gives, I then ended up loading a roll in Chester in December 2010 and only just removing it last week - which is rubbish I know. Plus the roll itself is Redscale film and I hadn't realised that because my camera is held together with electrical tape after one night out too many and I couldn't read the film type. Sadly this means I have used it in a lot of totally inappropriate situations over the last 14 months or so. Below are 3 of the shots I actually like from the film
|I like the juxtaposition of an analogue photo of a DSLR|
|This is Dave on a beach in Portsmouth from April 2011 - love the blue tones|
|This is hard to see, and it has a light leak, but it is my dad fishing in Portsmouth, which is his favourite thing to do. Not many photos of him doing it though|
I am off to a Lomography event this evening in Birmingham. It is all a bit vague but I got invited through my role as a CitySlicker (basically LSI asked for students to write set articles about their home town and I got picked to cover all things Leeds) to go to the press launch of the pop-up store in Birmingham Selfridges. However since then it has been advertised on the lomography website that every store is having an event that day to unveil a new mystery product. It all seems to be animal based as a lot of the adverts say "Zebra. Leopard. Snake." and "Come to the wild side" etc etc. I haven't a clue what to expect - but I have purchase some little animal ears on a headband all the same!
