Picture This!

12

So where have you've been lately? from the abstract past or to the near future? Before you go into the beyond, you've got to picture this!

“It’s a strange day, No colours or shapes, No sound in my head, I forget who I am, When I’m with you. There’s no reason, There’s no sense, I’m not supposed to feel, I forget who I am…” – Utopia by Goldfrapp

Not only a photograph can speak to you in a thousand words or more, it can also transport you from where you are to somewhere else new yet very familiar, a place nobody knows but you. Upload those shots of multiple exposures or any photographic abstractions that shows undefined dimensions and feelings you are in. Good luck!

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
