Meet Lucy the LC-A+!
A few months ago, I was blessed with the chance to acquire a Lomo LC-A+, one of my most coveted analog cameras since I got hooked with film photography and Lomography. My analog buddies have lots of beautiful photos taken with the LC-A+, which of course, convinced me to get one. I also felt a bit obliged to shoot with the camera since joining Lomography, since its predecessor, the LC-A, is the company’s (and the movement’s) flagship camera. It was simply the camera that started it all. I could have gotten myself one of the original, refurbished Russian goodies, but they’re a bit expensive and hard to find, so I’m content with the more recent version.
Shooting with Lucy is a breeze; no wonder it’s a favorite of my film photography friends and the rest of the analog-loving world. It’s a handy zone-focus camera (which means you have to guess-timate the distance and set it using a switch at the side), and also allows one to choose from several ASA/ISO settings. I’m pretty used to it now and have tried a handful of films. I’m happy with a lot of my photos, so I’m sharing some of them here!
One of my favorite creative bloggers, Elle, has a new analog baby too! Check out her photos here!
