Sometimes, nice and simple shots are more than just enough
Shot using my very first analog camera, ever . . . the one I bought at BestBuy many years ago, when I was taking Photography 101 class (the only photography class I ever took in my entire life).
This camera is very easy to use. It comes with a built-in flash, a reliable auto mode, and nice auto-focus lenses. This is the camera I use when I test a type of 35mm film I’ve never used before. That way, I can get a set of images I can use as benchmarks.
So, naturally, when I decided to try Lomography 100 ISO Color Negative film for the first time, I reached for this trusty old camera.
I like how the images turn out: Very bright and saturated . . . with dramatic, pronounced shadow
And, the photos come out remarkably sharp . . . even when I shot the image at f/3.3 . . . The subject looks very sharp and in focus, and the background melts into soft/smooth bokeh . . . But, check the texture of my subject’s hair and hoodie.
It’s amazing to see what this old, plastic-bodied, lightweight camera and this relatively low-priced film ($3.63 apiece) can create.
