I haven’t been posting too many photos taken with my LC-A lately, for I haven’t been able to shoot with it for a few months. The shutter stopped firing consistently. I’d have a roll of 36 exposures come out with around 5-8 pictures missing. The shutter would make a clicking sound like normal, and the film would be able to advance, but the shutter wouldn’t actually open 100 percent of the time. The times that the shutter wouldn’t open was random, and it got a little frustrating not knowing if an image was captured or not. So, the LC-A is currently under repairs. It’s a really fun and versatile camera and I hope to get it back in working order soon enough.
Here’s a mighty old double exposure I just stumbled upon while digging through long forgotten files. I must have taken it back in 2011. At the time I captured this photo, I saw how the light from that lamp played out on the wall above. I noticed the negative space in between the rays, and I thought it’d work well for a double exposure if I centered the subject of my second shot in that darker, central space. Double exposures can be a bit tricky. They require some foresight, but they can turn out really well if one can remember where the darker and lighter areas are in each photo. I’m pleased that I found this old picture. Perhaps I should look through my old files more often! This one was captured with a Lomo LC-A on who knows what color negative film. © Patrick Bresnahan
