My roll of Fuji Sensia ISO 100 was torn off from the film canister while I tried rewinding my LC-A+. I thought either my roll of film was a goner or the rewinder was busted. My first roll of film overseas with my GF...and my LC-A+. =(
Luckily I didn’t open the camera at all. I waited ‘til I returned to my resort room before turning off all the lights and I opened my LC-A+ under the thick blanket. I took out the roll of film and placed it into a film container (which is unfortunately white and translucent). So I had to use the next best alternative in the room, which was a Pringles can! I emptied it and cleaned the inside before placing the film container. (All done under the blanket so that light wouldn’t get to the film!)
Obviously I was nervous when I sent my film for developing and scanning. Luckily, the store’s lady was nice enough to accept my film! So Singapore Lomolovers, please patronise Grace Digital Lab. (Great service!) And so my roll of film turned out very, very satisfying and not ruined by light leaks!
At Avillion Port Dickson Resort!
Nice view from the water chalets and fine white sand from their beaches! A relaxing and pleasant holiday resort.
Definitely gonna bring my GF back there next time for another holiday. :)

Sonja started her analog adventures during her teenage years. She took her first film photographs when she was 13 and has been in love with the magic of the process since. Her idea of a perfect day involves developing film rolls while listening to jazz and having a cup of tea in between. In this interview, she recalls about her experience with her first Lomography camera, a Holga 120 CFN.
This article is dedicated to the multifaceted American photographer George Krause and to his series depicting funeral monuments realized between 1962 and 1963. I was able to know about this series thanks to an important essay on photography written by former Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Director of Photography, John Szarkowski. For this tribute, I loaded my trusty Praktica camera with a roll of Ilford film and took a series of photos in the Monumental Cemetery in my city, Como. Take a look!
There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.
My friends and I teamed up with Photo Art Pro to spread analog love to the Zaporozhye community. Last month, we hosted a Yeti Scavenger Hunt and had a LomoKino camera as prize. We challenged participants to shoot a roll of film based on a checklist. It was tremendous fun!
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.
I went to the Victoria & Albert Museum's Friday Late, an event that takes place every last Friday evening of the month. For March 2014, the London borough of Tottenham was invited to curate an evening of creativity. There were a number of events that went on ranging from music and art to fashion and film. Accompanied by my LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2, here are my highlights of that evening in photographs.
I traveled to Cartagena de Indias, Colombia in May 2015 with my twin sister. Our birthday was on the 31st, and for the last few years we've had a silent pact to try to spend our birthdays traveling as much as we could (and as long as we’re single!).
Originally trained as a classical scholar, Arnold Genthe was a self-taught photographer famous for, to name a few, his photographs of San Francisco's Chinatown in the early 1900s, autochromes, and portraits which included famous individuals, dancers, and women with his beloved pet, Buzzer the cat.
