Here we have some fisherwomen hard at work, untangling nets on Korea’s west coast. Shot with a Lomo LC-A on Lucky SHD 100 black and white film. Personally developed in the darkroom with D76.  © Patrick Bresnahan

    • Thanks! This was a perfect opportunity for me to use the LC-A since it has zone focusing. I figured the right distance to the subject, held the camera at my waist, and shot discretely. It was a good chance to get a candid shot : ) I’m glad you like it~!

    • Thanks, I appreciate your comment. Sometimes the zone focusing technique fails on me, other times I get it just right. It definitely takes some practice and patience. Give it a shot^^

  1. Lovely image!
    LC-A is a truly fantastic little camera, a great workhorse with nothing ” toy” about it at all. Lucky seems to be a wonderful companion to the LC-A.
    I have one roll in my fridge…. Maybe it is time to take it out for some work… 😉
    Btw, have you tried your Holga macrolenses yet?

    • Thank you! Yes, indeed the LC-A is a marvelous camera. It’s really perfect for shooting at the hip discretely and capturing candid images : )

      I got the Holga macro lenses in the mail, but I haven’t shot with them yet. I actually had to order a new Holga ( not a problem since they’re so cheap ). When I started using filters on my original Holga for infrared work, I had to use a step down ring. Since Holgas don’t have the threading for filters, I had to screw in the step down ring tightly into the soft plastic. It got stuck in there, and I couldn’t get it out. So, I wasn’t able to pop the macro lens onto the lens since the step down ring was and is still in place. The new Holga should hopefully be arriving soon. I can’t wait to start experimenting with Macro photography! I’ve never been able to get THAT close to my subject before : )

      • Yeah, it is awesome! 3 cm between the lens and object with the closest lens. It is impossible to look through the camera, you just have to aim at your object.
        Sometime you gets surprised… 😉
        Good luck with it, I can’t wait to see your results!
        Have a great day.

    • Hmm, i can’t recall exactly what she was saying right when I took the picture, but I remember we talked about what it was like for me living as a foreigner in Korea. She asked if I got homesick, had a girlfriend in Korea, etc. I talked a bit about their work, as well. They told me their job was tough and that they started really early in the morning.

    • I scan the film. I have an Epson V500 scanner. Most of the shots on this site were scanned with it. However, I used to get my film scanned at the photo lab before I bought the scanner. So, some of the photos on this site were scanned at the lab.

I'd love to hear your thoughts! Please feel free to comment ~
