My First Born Son: Iffat Altamis


I have an ongoing project dedicated for my very first born child.Special moment that every married couple waited. It feels good to be a daddy!

Inspired by Jamie Livingston (October 25, 1956 – October 25, 1997), I decided to do my very own mini-project based on Jamie’s “Polaroid A Day.” Instead, I’m using Fuji Instax Mini because Polaroid is quite expensive compared to Fuji Instax. I called my project “Instax A Day: Iffat Altamis” and started doing it right after he was born on 17th Sept 2011!

This ongoing project will go on until he reaches his 1st birthday. I’m hoping that I can finish it without fail,at least i got something special for him capturing the moment he was born until he turns a year old. For the time being, I just need to make sure that I don’t miss a single day to take his photo and watch him grow from time to time.

It feels like dream having your very own child and starting your own family. One thing is for sure, I will make sure that he will follow my footsteps to be a analogue camera lover and share my passion about photography, specifically Lomography! LOMO ON!

For spur-of-the-moment pictures that can’t wait to be seen and loved, our Instant Cameras will do its job in giving you your shots in no time! Check out our selection here.

    You know what? This is my birthday too, funny to think about when I was eating cakes with my friends and family, you became father of your son :) I remember it was a lovely day.
    Good luck!

    The most exciting thing about this project is going to be one day when he's much older looking at the photos and it hits him that he was once actually experiencing the moment of those photographs.

    That's brilliant! I did the same for my baby but digitally - I was convinced it would be too much hard work going the analogue route lol. This was the result…

    The Lomo’Instant Splitzer: the Must-Have Slice and Dice Accessory!

    What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!

    12 Months, 12 Projects: March Of Caffenol

    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.

    Finally, My Own Petzval Lens

    In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    Lomography's Little Lessons: Film Speed

    Sometime between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, a boy in northern Afghanistan was born with a gene mutation that hindered his eyes from producing melanin and thus from turning brown. He had blue eyes. If you see someone with blue eyes today, he is a descendant of this unlucky fellow. I am one of those weird folks and apart from feeling like a mutant and being Angelina Jolie’s secret sister, I am sensitive to light like an ISO 6,400 film.
