    Hopefully you were using multiple cameras…my guess is you had a few tricks (err, cameras??) up your sleeve. This is wonderful though, love the punchy colors of the Lomo.

      Thanks Jordan–

      Unfortunately I had misplaced confidence in the setup, and thus was the only camera I used.

      (Doh).

      Film. Gotta love it.

    There’s one thread that runs through almost all of your colour film photos: rich tonality, especially on skin. For some reason, probably fashion, a lot of people ‘print’ (or export) their film photos so that everything is washed out. As a consequence, apart from a homogenisation of aesthetics, you get skin which may as well have come from a DSLR.

    I’m glad that you have your style and that you are not led by fashion. Someday people are going to look back at their washed out photos, and see how many other photographers did just the same thing, and wonder what they were thinking.

    It’s like manipulation software like Resolve or Photoshop: fun toys when you first discover them, to be sure, but just like a baby blanket, you have to give them up if you want to mature and grow and do timeless work. First we had cross-processing, then we got Photoshop, then clownish HDR, then, the ultimate curse, Instagram. Washed-out tones are the new cross-processing.

    Thanks for being real!
