Lomography film sucks!

I'm a sucker. Why? Because I bought Lomography film at Urban Outfitters for $20 a box. In the box there was 3 rolls of made in China 120 black and white 100 ISO film.

If Lomography is truly the art of taking bad pictures, well this film is the best crappy one you can get. I'm not mad, I bought the film out of curiosity because I wanted to see if it was that bad. I had no high hopes since this film is in reality Shanghai GP3 cheap film but I wasn't expecting this bad.

How's this for bad, the numbers and dots printed on the back of the paper has bleeded through on the film! For 100 ISO this film is so grainy it could be sandpaper. No chance of taking a good picture with this even by dumb luck, so I guess that makes it great lomo film. So if you were wondering, Lomography film sucks. Depending on where you are with your photography this could be a bad thing or a good thing.

 All pictures taken with a Kodak Tourist II folding camera.

Thanks for watching.
