Book Description

7 Oct 2012
Decidedly low-tech and highly idiosyncratic plastic, or 'toy' cameras such as the original 1984 Lomo Kompakt Automat (which spawned the term 'Lomography'), the Diana and the Holga, and the recently introduced Blackbird, Fly enable users to create images that, while not technically perfect, display a quirky sense of fun, spontaneity and creativity. This book offers a practical guide to shooting with a plastic camera, including hot tips and tricks on loading, advancing and unloading film, using the viewfinder and camera modifications and reinforcements. It also suggests ways to get the most from these unpredictable devices when capturing movement, shooting in low-light conditions, using flash and more.

More About the Author

Chris Gatcum has been involved in photography for over two decades, working as a photographer, journalist, and author. Like many aspiring photographers, his career started at college where a degree course taught him a wide range of skills and technologies, covering both studio and location work, large format photography through to the then-emerging digital technology, and, of course, Photoshop.

He went on to work as a set-builder on a number of high-end advertising campaigns and as a photographer and retoucher, before joining the UK's longest-standing photography magazine, Amateur Photographer, as technical writer. Magazines led to books, and the rest--as the cliché goes--is history...

Chris' books include Creative Digital Photography: 52 Weekend Projects (published as Camera Creative in the US), Light & Shoot: 50 Fashion Photos, and Landscape Photography: The Four Seasons. He currently lives in East Sussex, UK.
