My father used to teach photography for 14/15 old kids - I wish I have his talent, but anyway - after some theory comes the practice and he used to finish his course with a Photo Safari. Now I'm inviting you all lomo friends to do the same.
After a month teaching photography for teenagers my old man always finished his course with a Safari. The idea was quite simples but lots of joy. All students had to do an urban Safari after 9 subjects – a 36 exp roll makes at least 4 photos each. After taking all photos my dad helped the kids curating their own photos and presenting them to the class. It didn’t matter what camera, film, technique you were using but, how did you expressed yourself, because, the most important thing was that all 9 subjects had to be shot on the very same roll.
It was back in 1984 and I was just 5, but I remember trying a little of that.
Now we’re a lovely bunch of film lovers society and I’m here back to invite you to do the same, let’s prepare our weapons and do some hunting.
Here are 9 subjects I’m proposing for this first Lomo Safari
1 – A chair
A classic one. If you neve tried, here is your chance.
2 – Love
Is there anything else to say about it?
3 – A street sign
We all love them
4 – Red
In my opinion London is red, that’s why I’m choosing it
5 – A stranger
Go on, it’s one of the golden rules
6 – Your feet
An awful cliche that you all do. But how to stand out on a flood of feet photos?
7 – Some on from your family
Show us a little bit of yourself
8 – The smell of coffee
I rather beer, but maybe coffe we’ll see something different with coffee
9 – You
Not your self-portrait, but you. Think
I’m really looking forward to see your album.
And remember JUST 9 PHOTOS
Have all a good hunt.
