I probably run into idea-blocking walls (and actual walls) more often than normal people. To make things more interesting when I go through my days, I made bucket lists for my two trusty cameras, La Sardina and Spinner 360.
So what I did was firstly, I googled, lomo-tipster-searched, tumblr-ed, youtub-ed for interesting and inspiring ideas that I can translate into lomographic goodness. These ideas came from amazing lomographers around the world, artworks, music videos, anything really.
The second step was to write these ideas on small pieces of paper, and then fold them and put them inside a plastic container/cup.
And don’t forget to make a note of the inspiration behind your ideas or any specific explanation regarding to how you would pull off those techniques/tricks. For instance, I wrote them down in a word document.
Here are the different ideas I’ve got so far, feel free to add on your ideas in the comment below. :)
