    FIsheye Baby 110: A Bundle of Joy from Lomography

    Way back in the late 1980s, I received a special gift from Colonel Sanders. It was a 110 film camera that came with my Kids Meal. Just about the size of a keychain, it rested snugly in the palm of my hands. I remember taking a few photos with the toy camera but didn’t get it developed somehow. Years passed and I still wonder what the outcome was if I had the rolls developed. When Lomography launched their latest product – the Fisheye Baby 110, I knew I had to try again for nostalgia’s sake.

    10 Golden Rules in Rock Lomography

    Shooting live gigs has been quite an experience for me. Totally different from what I’ve been documenting prior to my Rock Lomography side project. I admit, I’m still new in music photography but I would like to share some of my knowledge with fellow lomographers based on my one-year stint. Just a few simple tips if you’re trying out. Remember this does not conform to regular music photography guidelines. Here are the 10 Golden Rules in Rock Lomography :

    Rock Lomography

    Believe it or not; beneath this outer shell of a nerd lies a savage beast. Fascinated by fantasy-inspired album covers (see: Boris Vallejo, Frank Frazetta) and lyrics depicting angst, war and mythology, I find solace listening to music of the steely kind irrespective of genre or subgenre. But listening just ain’t enough for me. I want to see the bands perform live, to experience the raw energy blasting in front of me. Alas, I had neither the chance nor the green light to participate in such activity.

    Stick Labels in Your Cameras

    Everyone has their own preference of personalizing their cameras; skin mods, custom paint jobs, additional stickers, etc.

    Vientiane, Laos

    Vientiane (pronounced as "Wieng Chan" by the locals) is the capital city of Laos. I went there on a family vacation last August and boy, did I have a good time. Situated in the Mekong Valley, it is a laid-back city void of traffic jam, noise pollution and other qualities of a bustling metropolis; a perfect getaway from the clutter of urban life.

    Be Lomo Elikon 535

    The Elikon 535 is one of my prized possessions. Didn't order this from LSI though, I came across this little Russian camera at a flea market (sounds familiar, no?).
