More photos from YMCA Camp Chief Hector in winter.
I spent 4 days at YMCA Camp Chief Hector in February 2014. It was my first time camping in winter and luckily we had great weather. The camp’s location in Bow Valley Provincial Park is absolutely gorgeous and there’s a beautiful view of Mount Yamnuska from the camp. I shot 8 rolls of film while there and these are the first of my photos.
You may have been wondering why this film photography blog is titled Going Lomo. Lomo, short for Lomography, is a style of photography using vintage and toy cameras. Lomo photos are often characterized by saturated colours and vignetting around the corners. The ‘Lomo look’ can be achieved by cross-processing E-6 slide film in chemicals meant to develop C-41 colour negatives. This look is often replicated digitally using apps such as Instagram, but film is where it started. Lomography is what inspired me to pick up a film camera again. It’s fun to see what can be created by using old cameras and vintage film!
This is the first post in a new series I’m calling Around the ‘Net. The focus of this series is to share the many wonderful resources on film photography found around the Internet. Here’s a few to get you started. These three webpages are a good place to learn more about Lomography:
