March 12, 2013: Gettin’ my Lomo on
I’ve been looking for this thing since that day I interviewed Norman Reedus, and he mentioned that Holgas and Lomos are among his favourites. I feel as though I’m part of some kind of cool club for having one of these in my possession, but the credit really goes to Samantha – she’s the one with the grassroots training in film photography, and she’s been collecting these kooky film bodies since long before I came into the picture.
The philosophy of using these cameras is supposedly to shoot from the hip and capture spontaneous moments. Truth be told, there’s something about this randomness that frightens me. You can’t review your pictures, you can’t really control your exposure, and the eyepiece I’m looking through is just there for show!
