I popped up to London last week! I had such a good day, I was visiting the brilliant Leonie, who if you haven’t checked out should do so right now – she takes the most beautiful photos and writes fabulous poetry too. I know!
We started our day in a renovated railway carriage at The Deptford Project – I can definitely recommend it if you fancy somewhere a little different for lunch; the food was super tasty and you’re guaranteed a window seat!
As you can see, I took my camera (my Pentax K1000) loaded with Lomography X Tungsten 64 film.
I’ve never used this before – it’s colour corrected to give natural tones when shooting under tungsten light bulbs – however if you’re out in summer sunshine the colour temperature is completely different so anything could happen! I’ve seen examples ranging from fluorescent pink and purple though to bold blues – and then subtler tones like the lavender hues I achieved here. I think a lot of the wilder effects are due to some other cameras only having ISO settings down to 100 whereas I was able to set my camera at the required 64 ISO. I rather like the effect!
Luckily I had enough sunshine to benefit from this super-low ISO (although there were one or two downpours to dodge along the way).
Part two and a different bit of London tomorrow!
