Contrasted Cat

Lazy, contrasted kitten

Playing with faking more lomo photos. i think I may actually buy one this week or next. It might be fun to actually shoot with a plastic camera rather than pretend (poorly) that I do. I'll likely mosey to Pop Deluxe and see what they have in stock.

I like the Oktomat and the Pop 9 mostly because they're so over the top that they are the perfect embodiment, in my mind, of the lomographic principles. Well, at least they crazy/shoddy manufacturing techniques.

I just don't know about this "film" stuff.

The nice thing about lomo is that it's supposed to be very lo-fi, so you can use cheap film and cheap developing, and it's often ok (if cost is the worry). Pop Deluxe sells lomo cameras - I got one for jackshoegazer for his birthday (the one that shoots four striped shots). He just scanned a bunch of the first batch, so you should check it out. We discovered that light matters - there's a reason most lomo shots are outdoors. :)

Yup. That's why I'm going to State on Tuesday (most likely). Maybe get some gnosh and play with a lomo. :)

I saw jackshoegazer's shots; that's part of the reason I'm finally trying one. I"ve never seen actual shots rom anyone I vaguely know. I don't trust those Flickr communities.
