Of the first ten photos I took with my Lomo’Instant Camera this one was the only real mistake.
I accidentally clicked a picture while I was walking from one room to another. I was sure I had gotten a picture of the living room ceiling, but when it developed I saw the self portrait and found the angle and how my face was positioned in the dark ground really interesting.
But then, I took it a step further, again not something I planned on doing.
When I tried to take a picture of the Instant photo with my iPhone, I kept getting my reflection in the dark back ground. So instead of trying to avoid my reflection, I decided to make it a part of the picture.
I can’t really call this an Instant photo, because I used two different cameras to take it. First my Lomo’Instant Camera then, my iPhone camera.
I had another photo similar to this one where my reflection had a more menacing feeling. But I like the feeling of this one better. It is as if I’m watching over myself.
