I have two cheap film cameras: Lomo LC-A and Kiev-60. The Lomo LC-A serves like an everyday notebook for me. Because it's small and lightweight, and it's always in my bag. I'm using the cheapest film as possible, often expired, which don't ruin the results, and often makes surprising and interesting images. With my Kiev-60, I take with when I know the story in advance when I'm about to shoot something. This camera comes with a native lens, despite of its low price, it still allows me to obtain high-quality prints, without using a more expensive and famous brand of cameras. I usually use Fujifilm ACROS 100 and Fujifilm PRO400H.
I love these cameras for their simplicity. The lack of a large number of switches and modes make handling quick and allows you to concentrate on just shooting the scene.
When I started to take pictures, it was almost an attempt to look at oneself. Of what I see and think. About 70% of all my work are of landscapes. In them I'm finding a feeling of unity within myself and able to put all my thoughts in order. The remaining percent of my work are in the category of street photography, a kind of an "urban introvert notes", which I described as the feeling of loneliness being in the big city. I also started photographing portraits where I'm discovering that an image is a good means of communication.
For those who are planning go into photography, but find themselves short on cash, I can assure you that indeed 'it's not the camera, it's you.' It’s a mistake to believe that an expensive camera will do the work for you to create a photographic masterpiece. You are the creator, and the camera is simply a tool/equipment.
