    LC-A Refurbished: Can't Get My Hands Off You!

    LCA is the camera i bring out everyday. The day without LCA in my bag i will feel weird, it is already part of my life. When i first join lomography, i bought a fisheye and a colorsplash. But as time goes by, i realized more and more people are using lomo LCA, and I asked, "What so great about this camera?", and i found out the reason very soon as i browse through other lomographer's lomohome. I found that the picture that taken by LCA are saturated in color and it is very contrast, and that is what I'm looking for.

    Yashica Electro 35GTN

    A black version of Yashica Electro 35 GSN with aperture priority. I guess everyone have heard of rangefinder camera. But I don’t think everyone know how it function exactly. Rangefinder cameras allow the photographer to measure the distance precisely and capture a photo which is sharp in focus. In the center of viewfinder, you will see two images, when object is in focus; the two image will overlapped and become one image as you turn the focus ring. So, let me introduce the Yashica Electro 35GTN range finder camera to all of you!

    Recently, me and a group of friends just had an Lomo outing at Kuantan. The place where we stayed is near the Kuantan Cherating beach. Cherating has a blend of both - modern and traditional. There are a lot of traditional villages in Cherating, and the local people are mostly Malay, which makes this place very friendly and sweet. Cherating is a great place for surfers, it has a wide stretch of white sandy beach, a wealth of accommodation, dining choices and a classic surfers' nightlife scene. In Cherating, you can find a lot of traditional houses making it a very nice place to take photos. There are also a lot of coconut trees around the Cherating beach, and of course when you are thirsty, you can always buy a coconut to drink. You'll feel relaxed and cool after you have tasted it. Besides that, you can also find a lot of Malay food over here such as nasi kelabu, nasi dagang, cendol, and a lot of other traditional Malay cuisines.

    I've been to the Royal Selangor Yacht Club for my friend's birthday party. The party started at 7.30 p.m., I reached there earlier with my Color splash and prepared to shoot some nice picture of the scenery at the yacht club. I reached there around 6.30 and the sky seemed a bit dark. This is why I got my picture mostly underexposed.

There are few types of transport you can take to reach there, for example bus, taxi, or train. When taking bus from KL to Klang bus station, you are not too far from that.

    Pulau Ketam

    On 13th October this year (2007), a bunch of Lomographers from Malaysia went to a small island in Klang for a Lomo outing. We had 11 Lomographers which joined the outing activities and all were equipped with at least two Lomo cameras. We reached the port of Klang around 9.30 a.m and took a boat to our destination which was Pulau Ketam. We reached it around 12p.m. When I first reached there, what attracted me the most was the port of the Pulau Ketam. Besides that, the other thing that attracted me was the boat that was used by the fishermen. It was so colourful and it was absolutely perfect for Lomo shots. So I took out my cam and had non-stop picture shooting.
