Five Things on My 2012 Analogue Bucket List

I had many plans for the previous year, but I never got around to doing them due to my laziness. So, I made a list of all things analogue I plan to do this year. Read on to find out if our bucket lists have something in common.

The year 2011 was one full of changes and dreams that remained as dreams. One example of that is when I planned to make my own matchbox pinhole camera and modify my ever trusty Vivitar UWS, but I never got around to doing them due to my laziness. But it’s never too late to change, right? This year, I promise I will now stick to my word and do things as I planned.

1. Take more photos.

The world is a beautiful place and everything could be a great and interesting subject. There are a lot of wonderful things to take pictures of so I shouldn’t waste my time just passing by them everyday. I need to take my camera out and snap, snap, snap!

2. Participate in more Lomowalks.

Lomowalks are a great way to shoot photos and at the same time, to meet people with the same interest as me. It’s always exciting to learn new things from my co-lomographers so I hope to spend more time with them.

3. Explore and experiment.

DIY here, DIY there. I’d love to try creating stuff myself so I’m putting this up on my bucket list! I might start with creating my own matchbox pinhole camera or redscaling more 35mm films or transforming my point and shoot camera to a Lomo LC-A (wait, that kind of seems impossible, hahaha!).

4. Use more cameras.

Recently, I found a panoramic camera in my grandmother’s house. When I tested the shutter it clicked like it was still in good condition so I plan to run a test roll in it and who knows maybe it’s still really working! I’ll get my fingers crossed for that. I also plan to buy a Fisheye no. 2 and a Diana Mini. I promised myself I’d buy a Fisheye no. 2 before 2012 but my budget didn’t allow me as I’m still a student a.k.a. jobless. I hope I get to save for those scrumptious cameras because I really, really want them! Shooting with a 170-degree wide-angle camera and one where you could switch medium frame to half frame is just amazing!

5. Join a photography exhibit.

I know I’m still a novice when it comes to Lomography so I definitely need to get out of my shell to fulfill this dream. I may not have a lot of cameras to experiment with but I don’t think that’s a hindrance for me to try to get better at what I love doing and to join a photography exhibit. I just need to make the most out of the few cameras I own and mix my personal touch of creativeness with it and I’m good to go. Hopefully I get to participate in a photography exhibit before this year ends, or at least, before I wither with age.

What about you? What are your plans this year? Share them in the comments section!

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.

    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.

    My Year in Analogue: Something New, Something Old

    Hi, everyone! I'd like to share with you my 2014 summary on analogue photography. Some things I did were completely new, while some were my good old habits. This year I learned how to develop black and white film, which I consider my greatest milestone. But the most important thing is that in 2014, I remain in love with Lomography! And the rest? Well, let's see...

    12 Months, 12 Projects: February - Nighttime Traffic

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In February, I wanted to take one of those long exposure night shots of traffic. You know the type: nighttime cityscape, with bright red and white stripes where traffic passes. I love those shots, but I had never gotten around taking one.

    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.

    Festival Season: Lots of Variety at the North Sea Jazz

    My brother had a photo exhibition last year at the North Sea Jazz Festival and got two tickets. So just like the old days with our father, we went to the Ahoy Rotterdam for an evening of jazz and other music. I was armed with an analogue SLR camera, telephoto lens, and sensitive film!
