Photography: Vivitar Ulta Wide Test Shots

It's been a long time since colour film graced this blog page. I recently acquired a natty Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim: a tiny plastic toy camera, with an incredibly short focal length. It's a cute little camera and has the potential to take some really interesting lofi pictures due to the plastic lens and the very wide lens. I took it for a spin on a dingy day. Not the best photos, but always interesting results!

A good example of the properties of the UWS lens. This pylon is huge but it's able to fit into the frame quite comfortably, even from a close distance. However, you get a lot of distortion towards the edges of the frame but I find all of it quite desirable . There's also some nice natural vignetting.
