Canon 1000f - lomography 800 film

The last time I used the lomography 800 film it was largely indoors, so it was interesting to test out the film purely outdoors. I finished the roll at the wedding and was overall happy with the results.

25 keeps 11 fails

Fail Reasons: cats that move too fast

Things to remember: cats are hard to photograph :p
In all seriousness though I enjoyed how the Lomo 800 performed more with the inside shots than the outside ones. Having been using Ektar 100 film since I first got into film photography, I would say (and since it's designed for landscapes) it definitely performs so much better for outdoor scenes and I would definitely go for a film like that instead of 800 Lomo. 

To be honest who would shoot 800 lomography outside on a sunny day for landscape shots, no one except me that's who!  In my defense the 800 was in my camera and I had to use it up before I could change rolls. I was honestly expecting (and had packed) to shoot a gazillion rolls of film at the wedding but ended up coming home with just three!  One other thing I can laugh at myself for I tried to used the 800 film in my camera up the day before the wedding knowing that I didn't want to start the day which such high speed film.  I actually thought it was nearly finished too but the 1000F camera, winds on the film backwards and thus the counter clock which I thought was nearly finished had only just begun - classic fee! lol lol
