Combo #184 (Lee Atwell)

By on November 19, 2013
Lens:  Diego 
Film:  W40 
Flash:  Jolly Rainbo 2X 

"I love the Buenos Aires HipstaPak for the way it gives a desaturated look that reminds me of vintage photos - such as those that you might come across in an old shoe box hidden away in an attic .
I like the cool, purply-blue tones the Diego lens adds to a photo when it is combined with a color film. It's distressed textured effect reminds me of my most favorite pair of indigo jeans - worn and beautifully faded.
Adding the W40 film minimizes the desaturated effect, adds a deeper vignette border and emphasizes and deepens the blue tones, as well.
The addition of the Jolly Rainbo 2X flash seems to minimize the distressed effect and greatly deepens the blue tones while highlighting the contrasts of light and dark.
I like the diversity of this combo - indoor and out, in bright mid-day light as well as quieter dusk or morning light. These photos are from both Seattle and California."
