12 for 2012 - Camera 2

As part of my 'take more photos' goal for this year - I decided that I wanted to use more of the cameras that I haven't actually used before in my collection.

February's camera (this post is a little late... oops) is an Exacta 135 that I got from my friend Adam. I probably could have used it in better lighting conditions but it was February and it snowed. Overall I'm happy with the results and honestly, just glad that more photos came out than the first 12 for 2012 camera. These photos were taken in Manchester as part of the Lomo meet up.

I still haven't started my camera for March - how bad is that? I took so many photos last month that I haven't really felt the need to take any in the last two weeks - I still have half a roll in my Yashica and Diana Mini to finish too. I've found it is best if I don't force myself to take photos if I don't fancy it though - I just end up taking bad photos and that's worse than taking none...

Camera: Exacta 135
Film: Kodak Elitechrome iso 100

A Lomography Meet Up Video (plus nerd alert)

So... I'm pretty sure to serious video makers that sliding titles and swishing video animations are considered to be a bit like Word Art in Word and the animations on Powerpoint... but I just don't care. I've never played with Windows Live Movie Maker before and sometimes you just have to have a bit of fun right?
So here's the video I shot for the Leeds Lomography Xmas Meet Up, complete with Star Wars soundtrack hahaha. So fun!
(you can always mute it if you want, I won't be offended)

Have a great weekend!!
This time next week I'll be getting ready to go home for Christmas, hurray!!
p.s. you can see another video from the meet up by Darren here... 
it has his own music on it, which means....
he's much cooler than me.
