LomoPeople Malaysia: Aslamiah

10

The first time I met her was in February 2001 and I fell in love straightaway. She is the reason why I am still breathing and my Lomography history started with her.

Her name is Aslamiah.

I still remember when she asked me what I would like to have for my birthday. I answered that I wanted a Fisheye No. 2. “What? Fisheye No. 2?” Then I showed her a photo from the Lomography website. Again she was like “What are these?”. She had no idea about Lomography.

Fast forward, we went out for a date. While we were having lunch, she took out a box from her handbag and gave it to me. Once I touched the box, I could feel the thing inside. Yes! It was the Fisheye No. 2! I was so excited back then. I couldn’t believe that she finally gave me the Fisheye No. 2 as a birthday gift.

She started to ask me questions about it. “Why move backwards? Nobody is using film now.” I smiled at her and said “I have no feeling towards digital.” Honestly, I have no talent taking pictures using digital cameras.

Then she started questioning “why move backward? Nobody is using films now.” I smiled to her and said, “coz I have no feel towards digital.” Honestly, I got no talent capturing pictures using digital cameras. As time went by, the Holga and Colorsplash were added to my collection. I gave Aslamiah the opportunity to take photos of me using my cameras.

Here are the photos that she took using my cameras:

Our wedding day is just 2 weeks away. Aslamiah has decided to give me the Sprocket Rocket as my wedding gift and I will giver her a Holga 120GN since she wants to get involved in Lomography after our wedding ceremony. I don’t mind the complexity of using a Holga as for me, a Holga is simple and suitable for a beginner like Aslamiah and I am willing to help her the A to Z of Lomography.

Dear love, hopefully you will love Lomography as much as I love you. Please pray for our happiness guys!

    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.

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

    Kick-Off Country: Kicking Off the World Cup Blues in Paris

    Les Bleus may have been booted out of the World Cup by Germany, but for me France is always a winner. The number of places to go around Paris, especially, can never be exhausted: the Eiffel Tower, Sacré Cœur, the Seine, the Arc de Triomphe, and this time, I fell in love with the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise.
