Luke's Mazda MX-5

After a weekend away testing my Praktica FX3 paired with a Helios 44-2 58mm f/2 lens, I still had a few exposures left on my roll of Lomography 100 colour negative 35mm film.

Perth Street Society's static meet was the perfect excuse to finish off the roll, meet up with Luke, talk film and capture some images of his winking Mazda MX-5.

If you like soft, dreamy images, grain and colour-shifts, then you'll love Lomography film.

The Helios 44-2 really added to the soft and dreamy effect causing visible lens flaring in some images.

This was the end of my first ever roll using a waist-level viewfinder camera, my Praktica FX3.

My copy has a broken mirror mechanism, leaving me to zone focus the entire roll. You can imagine that using 100 ISO film at f/2 made this rather challenging and caused a few casualties.

Overall this camera setup was fun to use, but I now have a newly found (even further) appreciation for simple Japanese makes with functioning viewfinders!
