My Lomo LC-A+ Story: Live Life Analogue


I started Lomography a few years ago. A friend of mine, Zulkamal Azman, was the one who introduced me to Lomo. Read on to know more about my LomoStory.

At the time, he brought Fisheye2 and showed me some of the photos taken using by the camera itself. The moment I saw those photos, I got really impressed. Then, I decided to grab one. And till now Fisheye2 is still my favorite Lomo camera among the rest. I love it so much to this day. The most interesting part about Fisheye2 is, that we can’t get the same effect from other cameras. Yeah, well, probably people can create it through photoshop or by using a DSLR.

Lomography and my community

In early 2010, I had created my own community which I named LOMOHUNTER before it changed to ANALOG GARAGE. The community was successfully joined by almost 80 followers all around Sarawak. We had so many activities, outings and getherings in Kuching. It was awesome.

There were so many sweet, as well as bad memories during my Lomographic journey. I met a lot of new friends – boys and girls, young and old, we share our experience together. I can never take away my LC-A+ away from my hand. I bring it everywhere – when I go to work, travel and even when I go to market! And i believe most of lomographers will admit that, LC-A+ is like their second wife. Well, so do I!. Apart from that, I’m also proud to be a lomographer because it makes me more and more creative and versatile. The sweetest memory that I would never ever forget in my life was when I was interviewed by the newspaper, radio station, and a TV station to introduce Lomography to the public.

In the middle of 2010, I tried to setup my own shop in my city. Unfortunately, luck wasn’t with me.

So, why LC-A+? As i mentioned earlier, LC-A+ is one of my “BBF”. I always shoot using my LC-A+! For me LC-A+ is something rare and irreplaceable. Besides that, LC-A+ is lovely and straightforward. I really love the MX effect as well, I love to play with it when I hangout with my love ones.

Anyway, I just grabbed a brand new LC-Wide. It was awesome. And I really love the wide view. Well, here’s my LomoStory and I hope to hear yours soon! ;) Live Life Analogue!

The Lomo LC-A+ is known worldwide for its amazing features: automatic exposure, extended ISO range, and multiple and long exposure capabilities. Get your own Lomo LC-A+ now!

Weiss like to photograph people of all ages but she especially loves to take photos of children, masterfully immortalizing their spontaneous gestures and emotions. For this article, I was inspired by one of her rare sports photos of some children practicing judo. Do you want to know more about this great artist? Well, read on!

    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.

    Testing a Yashica TLR Camera After 55 Years in Storage

    Though I am not a professional, photography is in my genes. My father was a photographer and technician in the Air Force and accumulated a number of cameras during his life. This is a story about one of those cameras, a Yashica 635 TLR. I brought the camera—after being in storage for about 55 years—back to life with a roll of Portra 160 during the golden hour at Bellevue Botanical Gardens in Washington.
