Actually before I bought my Holga, I’d already possessed an Olympus Mju-II, which is my brother’s. At first I thought I’d only have Holga and Mju-II as my only analogue cameras, but as time passed, I found myself itching for more!
So me and my siblings gathered our money to purchase a vintage SLR, Pentax SP500, on eBay. A couple of months later I spent my piggies on a Lomokino and a Spinner 360. They arrived four days after my sister’s birthday, when me and my brother gave her a Fisheye 2. I know what you’re thinking, we are crazy!
And then, my birthday came a month later. My siblings bought me a Supersampler. We had so much fun shooting with all our cameras! A few months later my cousin brother found two vintage analogue cameras in the storeroom, which he gave them to me. It’s a Kodak Brownie 44A and a Yashica MG-1. They are still functioning, but we need to acquire a 127 film to load into the Kodak and a discontinued battery to work the Yashica. I don’t plan to use them anyway.
Two weeks ago, I ordered a Holga 120 CFN and some other things. I am really mad because they haven’t arrived yet! I’ll just have to wait some more.
On the 4th of December 2011, my LomoHome became the LomoHome of the Day! I want to thank LSI for that! Later, I did a filmswap with @mephisto19. It was my first time and it was great! I’m currently doing a filmswap with someone else, I won’t tell you who it is. I have also filmed my first movie with my Lomokino!
I have shot colour, x-pro and redscale films. I am still a virgin to B&W photography. I will shoot one as soon as possible! I have also never been to any outing before.
So I guess these are what I did and did not do throughout my first year of Lomo journey. Will try to do more crazy things with my cameras this year!
