Faux Retro Photograpy

For all of you lucky people that own an iPhone (or Android equivalent) your first port of call will most likely be the ubiquitous Instagram (with Picplz being a close Android substitute until Instragram proper lands).

Charming nostalgiary.

If you’re after something a touch more destructive then there’s Decim8.

Good for that damaged vcr flavour or artifacty wierdness.

I’m not one of these lucky people so I have to use other means.

My current faux retro set-up is my lovely Canon 60d (get one) with a Holga reproduction lens from Hong Kong (£15 on ebay).

The other option is a Lomography Diana lens with appropriate adapter.
More expensive and you lose quite a bit with the digital crop factor, but still some charming results.

Or you could just get a proper Lomo camera, but y’know, film and stuff.

Now off you go, get shooting.
