{La Sardina} In Spring

Remember that time I won a Lomography La Sardina? Being a toy camera with very limited control over exposure and focus settings, the La Sardina is a camera that I don’t bring out very often. It’s hard to get through a roll in a timely manner sometimes due to the fixed aperture and shutter speeds. That’s because the camera is really light hungry! But once the sun starting to show its face again this spring, I decided that it was time to be purposeful about shooting a roll with the La Sardina!

I keep thinking that this peeling paint looks like a family standing side-by-side

If you ever use a La Sardina camera, I think it’s at its best on sunny days or when you use its bulb setting to give more exposure control. That’s the secret to any success I’ve had with it anyway! (That’s the secret to my success with any toy camera…)
