These were taken when the Nuit Blanche event happened here in Edmonton. Nuit Blanche is a contemporary art event taken place at night. This year there were exhibits all across the downtown area. We spent the whole night trying to find a bunch of these pieces before we got too cold and decided it was time to leave. As you can see in the first photo, we have some reacurring guests! Kasun (Right) and I started spending more time together, connecting over our obsession with cameras and photography. Specifically film gear. Then, we have Angela (Middle) which you guys have seen in a post in the past where we spend time in a corn maze. This is my first time seeing her in a while, as she moved to Toronto and moved back home just recently. Lastly, we have a new face popping up and that is her brother, Andy (Left). We met a couple years ago actually but we never really hung out until this night. It's always nice to capture someone new in a photo..
In the next few posts, you'll probably be seeing a lot of me testing out new gear or mostly, new types of film. In this particular set, these were shot with Lomography 800 Colour Negative film. I've always been aware of Lomography film but I was never interested in it. I always thought of it as "Cheap and Cheesy." However, when I picked up this roll out of pure curiousity, I was genuinly surprised of the results. There are some really weird neon looking colours and the highlights are a bit...eh. But for the price it was still quite impressive. I figured out that the look I really didn't like from the sample images I found (Besides the colour) were mainly from the camera themselves. Perhaps they were using one of the "Cheap and Cheesy" cameras that Lomography or Holga makes.. All in all, It's not a terrible roll. I do prefer it slightly more than FujiFilm Superia 400, PERSONALLY! I do see myself picking up more sometime in the future. It is very strange, colour wise, so It'll definetly be used more for fun.
