This year's Red Bull Soapbox Racewas held in my backyard, the East Side of Providence, RI on College Hill. Last year I lived just a couple blocks down from this spot! It was an amazing time and I was lucky to be accompanied by two of my favorite new cameras: my Holga 120CFN and my brand new Diana+ from The Lomographic Society. There is no better way to capture these fanatics than with a Lomo camera!
I used my new Diana+ for the candid shots of the crews in the pits and my Holga with high speed film for the race shots. I got a lot of looks from photographers with their D-SLR's! The pit crews were very happy to pose for my unique cameras.
In this photo, team Star Truck. Their vehicle was the cross between a Ford Econoline and The Starship Enterprise! I enjoyed their trekkie costumes and the color saturation of this photo. Wait a sec... is that Weird Al? I didn't know he was a trekkie, although I guess that is the epitome of "White and Nerdy"!
Created using my brand new Diana+ with AGFA Portrait XPS 160. Negative scanned with an HP Scanjet 4890. No digital manipulation used!
