Wonderful Images With a “Toy” Camera

Tom Debiec, who is the invited speaker for the LCC’s next meeting this Wednesday, June 13th at 7:00pm, writes:

“Toy cameras are simple, inexpensive film cameras.  Unlike the latest digital cameras that feature almost unlimited control to the photographer, the simplicity and design of toy cameras cause distortion, vignetting and light leaks.  These defects are embraced by the users of these cameras who are able to use them to their creative advantage.

“For the past seven years, I have been using toy cameras almost exclusively.  In this presentation, I will explore the capabilities of these cameras and expose you to the work of the photographers that love them.

“Several of  my photographs are featured in the Expanded Visions show currently taking place at the Ware Center in downtown Lancaster.  My series, “The Kruger Deception” was featured in the Lancaster Lens show at the Lancaster Museum of Art and at the Infrantree Gallery.  My photos have also been featured nationally and internationally.”
