Update: Congratulations to our winner, La Oreja D VanGogh! We’ve contacted her via email — she has two weeks to respond before we choose another random winner.
July’s second name should be “Vacation Month” — it seems like half the people I know are beach-bound in the next few weeks. Whether you’ll be sticking your toes in the sand or enjoying summer from home, you’ll love this month’s Freebie Friday giveaway: a La Sardina Camera from international analog photography shop Lomography.
Sure, digital cameras are fun, but summer is the perfect time to experiment (again) with the wonder of manual film. This Capri Saracena model comes outfitted with a wide-angle lens and a powerful flash that includes 3 color filters, so a day at the beach (or in the backyard) will turn into a photo that’s frame-worthy. (Check out some of the shots other La Sardina photographers took with this camera.) Plus, the durable, bright deck chair fabric covering makes this camera a perfect accent piece when you’re not out snapping photos. We’ll include three rolls of 35MM film to get you started.
