this weekend charlottesville plays host to LOOK3 festival of the photograph. exhibitions are mounted, artist talks are given, parties are had, and photographs are snapped. it's always fun to see the festival goers traipsing around the mall with all manner of camera in tow, from tiny plastic toy cameras to polaroids to hasselblads. we have a few fun cameras in the shop from lomography, purveyors of classic (and unpredictable) analog cameras like the holga, diana, and the famous russian "spy camera," the lomo. in recent years lomography has introduced new cameras to their line up, and we currently have the fisheye and the colorsplash.
as you might expect, the fisheye gives all the photos you take a fishbowl appearance, like this photo borrowed from lomography's website:
i think you can imagine the insane cuteness potential here for photos of kids and pets. the other camera we have is the colorsplash, which comes with twelve different filters that make your photos super saturated, like this:
both of these cameras kick it old school and use 35mm film, which means you get lots of surprises when you pick your photos up. in celebration of the festival of the photograph, we're offering these cameras at 25% off for the month of june!!! wowee!!! (and don't forget that father's day is june 21!)
