In this day and age, technological advances in the field of photography have grown immensely. Even post processing has improved by leaps and bounds. The progress is advantageous but where is the challenge in that?
Good thing there is lomography to awaken the love for old vintage film and polaroid cameras.
To satisfy my curiosity about the hype, I bought this Vivitar EZ35 lomography camera and used it with the Kodak Professional Ultima 100 film.
It is much like a toy camera but it produces fairly good photos.
These are the usual scenes that I see on my way to work. I did not take their picture only for art’s sake. I chose them to be the subject of my photos to somehow evoke empathy in the hearts of people.
Using a manual camera again after a long time was challenging. Since I had no option to see my pictures immediately, I had to pay attention to more details in the scene. Pressing the shot button was hard, but I had to force myself to just do it and move on.
I am a self-confessed newbie in the field of lomography, but I can say that it is really fun and addicting. I think I’m smelling more rolls of film coming soon! ;-)
