Supersampling Isla Fuerte

It's true what they say at Lomography. You should leave your concepts behind and forget what you learned about photography. The most important: dont think and just shoot. Maybe you dont get anything, but the uncertainty its part of the fun. In my case, i love using a Supersampler, my favorite Lomo camera, a beautiful plastic toy with no visor and no focus ring. Just 4 small lenses and a fixed diafragm (f/8). If you're lucky and you get the right light, the results can be magic. Thats what happened to me when i was Supersampling Isla Fuerte, an small Colombian island in the caribbean sea: one roll, zero digital manipulation, and 36 not perfect but amazing photos. Here, 10 of them.
