Analogue Coverage: Rock en Seine

Rock en Seine is a three day Rock 'n roll festival, held at Château de Saint-Cloud's park just outside Paris and this year I went with my analogue cameras.

One of the reasons we chose to go to Paris over the August Bank holiday was because of the music festival called Rock en Seine, held just outside Paris. We also went to a music festival while we were in Krakow, as we are well-traveled music lovers (we’re heading to Barcelona next, I believe… haha)! Neither me or my boyfriend took as many photos as we were expecting, but I managed to get some with my Yashica Samurai with my first try of Lomography X-Pro film.

I also took my La Sardina, which I think was perfect with the wide lens for capturing the fun atmosphere, and to give an impression of the number of people there.

Highlights from the festival include performances from the Foo Fighters (Dave Grohl was amazing), the Artic Monkeys, Anna Calvi, Lykke Li, and Austra, who I just loved!

    Festival Season: Lots of Variety at the North Sea Jazz

    My brother had a photo exhibition last year at the North Sea Jazz Festival and got two tickets. So just like the old days with our father, we went to the Ahoy Rotterdam for an evening of jazz and other music. I was armed with an analogue SLR camera, telephoto lens, and sensitive film!

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Analog By Nature

    It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
