What is Lomography?

It's experimenting with plastic cameras and not knowing exactly how your photos will turn out.

Holgas are a classic example. These types of toy cameras create a soft focus, vintage look. Holgas are known for their inconsistency from body to body. Some of them have more vignetting than others. But all of them are famous for light leaks causing some interesting and unpredictable results.

For my first camera though, I think I want to try the Diana F+. The reason being it has one more aperture setting and it also comes with a flash and colored gels. Those gels will come in handy when shooting black and white landscapes.

I'm looking forward to trying it out with some 120 Ilford Delta 400 and 120 Kodak Portra 400.

I created a fun little rule graphic to remind me to have fun and not overthink.

I got the background information and rule set here. http://www.1stwebdesigner.com/what-is-lomography/
