Sprocket Rocket Fun!

3

I got a Sprocket Rocket Superpop Edition as my birthday gift this year! Loaded with the last roll of expired Ilford SFX 200 that I have, and these are what I got from the very first roll of this cute little camera!

Thank you to my love, who got me a Sprocket Rocket Orange as my birthday gift. This little camera is just too adorable! I actually named it, though it sounds a bit odd but true that I love to name all my cameras. I named it “Tangerine” because of the bright popping orange color which I really love. Loaded with the last roll of expired Ilford SFX 200 that I have, these are the photos that I got from the very first roll of Tangerine!

Climbing up onto a rocket with Sprocket Rocket!

The panorama view definitely makes taking group photos easier! I can capture all four of my best friends and still with decent amount of the scenery captured. Not forget to mention the sprocket holes which added a very nice touch on the black and white photos.

I especially love this photo of my friend. We were taking photos in his home studio and took this stolen shot of him while he was checking the photos he took for me in the computer. Long exposure under low light worked pretty well with my sprocket rocket.

And more photos from the first roll!

Hits and misses as always, and then I loaded Tangerine with a Revolog Tesla this time. It was actually my first time heard of this handmade film and I just bought it out of my curiosity without doing further research. I know it will give the lightning effect in the shots but at that time I could not picture the outcome at all. It has only 12 frames, so if I use it with Sprocket Rocket, I can only take 6 shots! After I processed the films, I wouldn’t say I really like the lightning touch on the photos but it is still fun to give it a try!

I love it more when the sprocket holes pair with black and white photos. Now with Lomography Earl Grey film loaded, I can’t wait to go out there and grab more shots!

    Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 120: Perfect for Endless Multiple Exposures!

    About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!

    Fresh from My Darkroom: The First Game of the New Rugby Season

    Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal. Take a look after the jump!

    Recently, we’ve been digging through all our LC-A 120 negatives from when we first started testing the new camera. During this search, we had our very own finding Vivian Maier moment when we unearthed a bunch of photos shot by the super-talented dopic whilst he was on vacation in Japan last year.

    'Aniki-Bòbò': A Tribute to Manoel De Oliveira

    This article is a tribute to the great Portuguese film director Manoel de Oliveira, who died last April 2. With an old Praktica loaded with a roll of black and white film, I captured so enthusiastically his city Oporto (Porto) with its famous Ribeira district, the most characteristic of the Lusitanian town. It was here that more than 70 years ago, Manoel De Oliveira created a timeless masterpiece: "Aniki-Bòbò"!

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket.

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."

    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.
