Frankly … I was almost bored to death during my trip to Malaysia for the Lunar New Year recently. Luckily I managed to get my dad to make a trip to the store to get me a prepaid internet access SIM card. However … I was still super busy having to look after Fitzand and trying to recover from hangovers.
In between these stuffs … I finished a roll of the Lomo Chrome 100 Xpro film (in a week). It was actually meant to be a roll of ‘first exposures’ … something I thought of doing when I didn’t know what to shoot on the first day there. I saw this little strip of negative that was in my backpack … meant to be used when retrieving film lead (with double sided tape) and inspired by my earlier attempt at using film strips as ‘canvas’ … I completed the first exposures and then (luckily) managed to finish shooting the 2nd exposure here in Singapore. Unfortunately … some of the 2nd exposures seemed to have gone missing but still I’m loving the results!
The first exposure was shot with a cheap old EOS88 SLR with a Nikon macro lens (using an adapter) and the 2nd exposure was shot using a Lomo LC-A+.
There are some shots (like this one above) that made me wonder what happened to the 2nd exposure. Don’t tell me my LC-A+ is dying???!!!!
I did a -1 exposure compensation when shooting the first exposure on the SLR but I didn’t do any compensation on my LC-A+. Why? That’s because I suspect my LC-A+ is a little screwed (!!!) and underexposes shots even with brand new batteries. Guess that’s a blessing in disguise because I love doing double exposures and I’m always forgetting to perform exposure compensation using the ISO settings.
