Film: Lomography color negative 400.
I'll be glad when the last one is gone, because I'm not really keen on this one.

Gaëtane at the Michael Kors store


Speaking of Lomography, bubble tea bar 8tea5 is the place to be in Antwerp for Lomography film.
But it's probably best not to take pictures in there with said film.

I have taken pictures of the Stadsfeestzaal in Antwerp with both my Agfa Click 1 and my Agfa Isola 1 in black and white, but never in colour. So I couldn't resist. I'm not terribly keen on this result, but I think it has more to do with the film than my camera.

IKEA restaurant

Clearly, it didn't matter that there was loads of light in the IKEA restaurant, it still wasn't enough. Oh well :)

Which wine?

Same story in Bioplanet. Live and learn!
It's always a learning curve with a new camera, to see under which circumstances it takes nice photos and under which it doesn't.

Tree full of tea

This Christmas tree at Bioplanet was full of boxes of tea, therefore it merited a picture.
I wish I had a little more time to take said picture though, so it wouldn't be framed so awkwardly XD

Hallaar church

Also full of awkward framage: Hallaar church.
I was so fed up waiting for there not being any cars, people, or cyclists in the way I just snapped the picture.
Clearly that was NOT a good idea XD
At least I know better for the next time :)

More photos taken with the Agfa Click 1 can be found here.

There is a LOT wrong with those photos, all things that didn't happen when I was using Kodak T-MAX 100, so I feel like it's safe to say that the issue lies with the Lomography film rather than with the camera (especially considering a friend of mine once borrowed it for a day to shoot a colour roll of 100 ISO by Fuji with and he didn't get crap results either).
Moral of the story: no more Lomo film!

I didn't actually want to throw away the other rolls thoug, because that seemed like a waste (and none of my friends wanted to trade after they saw the results from the first roll, and I did NOT want to bother with finding someone to trade online considering what B-post charges, which would have made trading an expensive hassle. The last roll is with the lab right now, but currently I have a roll of Kodak Ektar 100 on it, which I'm sure will give much better results :)

I've never used Lomography film. It's always been Kodak T-max or Fuji. But experimentation is the only way to know you like/hate something, right? I look forward to the Ektar photos. :)
