When people are chasing for the latest gadgets in town, when DSLR is the new black and it is a must-have by everyone, when people think that camera loaded with film is so yesterday. I choose to not go with the flow
I used to be among those who go with the flow, always up-to-date and having at least one of the latest things in town. But that has stopped when the brother introduced to me, lomography. Being a so-called hi-tech person, of course my reaction was negative. I was like, why choose to trouble yourself looking for the films and looking for a place to develop it just to get some effect on the pictures while Photoshop can do the job. In this high-tech world, that is just lame. But despite having all sort of negative thought, I invested some money for Smena 8M and got a bag full of expired film from my uncle who is a photographer and later my aunt gave me her unused Yashica FX-3 2000. Suddenly, the brother and I, we have two analogue cameras. So that’s how it started.
And today, I have five cameras; Smena 8M, Yashica, LC-A, Fisheye 2 and Superheadz UWS, and I still have a lot more on the wish list.
