La Sardina camera giveaway from Lomography!


One of the things I love about film photography is the factor of the unknown. I love the throwback to the days before instant gratification and the sacredness that each photo has when you only get one shot. Of course, sometimes that can lead to disappointment when things don't turn out as expected. But I think that's the beauty of film photography and I for one am up for the challenge. 

Are you up for the challenge? I shared my review of the La Sardina camera from Lomography earlier today. Make sure to click over to see my colorful photos and read my experience and then pop back here to enter to win a La Sardina! 

The La Sardina camera is an analogue film camera from Lomography. It features a 22mm wide angle lens (really fun to shoot with!), 2 focus settings and a detachable flash too! It uses 35mm film which is easy to find in any convenience store! The Orinoco Ochre model comes in a super funky orange reptile-inspired case. You can see more details about the camera here. 

First of all, if you are a photography lover, you may want to sign up for a Lomography account. You can upload and share your photos, earn points towards shop credit and receive the latest promotions and news. AND HelloHue  readers will receive $10 online store credit when you register with this link! 

Ready to enter already??

To enter, leave a comment below and tell me what you love about photography. Do you like the challenge of finding a new perspective? Does it make you giddy to stop and capture a moment in time? Tell me about it! 

Additional, optional entries::

  2. I love taking pictures of Emily most of all, but aside from that I love capturing the beauty in creation. We took a road trip this weekend and I seriously could have stopped every 5 miles to capture something especially the sunset. Oh geez!!

  3. There's a lot I love about photography but I think what I love most is capturing a memory to have to look back on one day in the near or distant future and have it be able to transport you back to that time to that memory.

  5. Liked on facebook, and I'm also following on twitter. :)
    Everywhere I go theres something beautiful to snap. Even the ugliest of things can turn out beautiful in the eyes of a camera lens. Everyone is different in their own way when taking pictures. And they can tell a lot about a person, which I love. Also, I love to take pictures to remember those sweet times in my life. :)

  14. I love pictures mostly for the memories either about the subject of the photo or what was happening the day I took that photo.

  15. I want this so badly! I am a portrait photographer so my favorite thing is to capture relationships between people.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm not sure what my favorite thing is about photography - maybe its the way you can capture a moment as a still, or the film, or the mystery that you're not exactly sure what you're going to get. I love it all, something about it is so simple - even when you're fussing with film, loading, angles and all.

  34. I love the fact that I can capture a moment and go back to any particular photo and relive a memory. Whenever I see a photo of a loved one that's passed, it takes me back to a that time when I was with them. I think it's the sentimental part about photography that I love.

  39. Oh my, what a wonderful giveaway! At this stage of life, when my memory is low and I'm at times sleep deprived, I am so thankful for the ability to capture moments in time through the lens of a camera.

  44. I love the thrill of getting a great shot, wether its abstract, a baby smiling or two people in love. The thing I love most about photography though, is the fact that every time I take a picture I am documenting history, and I think that is a great legacy and gift to leave for my kids and grandkids when Im gone.

  45. I also followed them on Facebook :)

  53. I love being able to take weekly photos of my babies. Now on #2, it is practically second nature to remember to take that weekly photo, and I absolutely L-O-V-E, love being able to click back through the photos from week 1.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love so many things about photography, but primarily, I love capturing a moment in time. Things that I normally might forget get captured in a photograph that I can look back on whenever I want. :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. What I love about photography: capturing a unique moment, whether it's the way the way the street looks at sunset with people walking down it laughing and talking, or a facial expression on someone you love, or just a little flower or unnoticed tidbit. Now, that moment is captured forever! I love that! It's all about sharing your point of view and that's the awesome part, you could set someone out on a busy street and tell them to take a photograph and everyone would come back with something different. It's a great thing!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love taking photos because it allows me to enjoy the moment and helps me see things more clearly. :)

  87. Time just kind of freezes for a moment and you can look back and be like "ohhhh, I remember that! Wasn't that such a blessing? Wasn't that something really special?" You only live once and your memory only lasts so long. Remembering those great moments is what makes photography so special.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I love being able to capture the moment. The look. The scene. The feeling. Memories slowly fade (at least for me), but having a picture reference keeps them more fresh.

    ReplyDelete
  89. What you love about photography//
    I love being able to capture a million laughs, giggles, and warm memories in literally one still moment. As they say a picture is worth a thousand words. Right?
    Challenge of finding a new perspective// Yes I do because it makes those moments more meaningful.
    Make you giddy to stop and capture a moment in time//Yes it does make me giddy to capture a moment because that moment can last forever and can remind us of good times in the storm.

  90. Photography is still one of the rare things in life that you have to capture right away. Those photos come out sacred cos you know you'll never have those moments again.

    ReplyDelete
  91. With two littles 2yo and under, I love capturing each new discovery, each smile, each milestone.

  96. I love all photography, but I especially love film because you get to really think about your picture before you take it and make every shot count. I think after you've thought out the shot so much and get excited for your film to develop, you really appreciate those pictures more than others!

    ReplyDelete

  109. Photography captures a moment and keeps record of a moment in time in a very special way. There's good reason for the saying 'A Picture says a 1000 words'. There are moments in my life (my wedding for one) where words will never be able to describe the feeling and memory I have, the photos however, say much, much more in a quiet, unspeakable way.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I love EVERYTHING about photography! It's been my "professional hobby" for about 4 years now and I can't get enough. I've been wanting to dabble in film and this is the perfect place to start.

And two of his older girl cousins "posing" behind him....and their heads were cut off. bwahahaha! Priceless. I would love to snap away with some actual film. It's been years. I have my camera with me on the daily. I love capturing all those moments where MOST people scream, "UGH! I wish I had my camera." Because I usually do!!! Thanks for this cool chance....

  115. I have loved photography forever! I'm always the one with the camera every where I go. I love going to botanical parks, beaches and friends and family events, before digital I always got double prints to share with others. I am putting together 2 scrapbook albums now, one of family, the other of friends. I also teach scrapbooking at my local store!
