This year I aim to do a lot more photography than in 2011. But more importantly, I have a few specific goals in mind that I would like to get started on asap.
One of the things I would like to do this year, that I started partially in 2011 is to visit more places and take photographs. I spent all the sunny weekends of 2011 going off to nice places in Yorkshire such as Knaresborough and Harrogate. I want to continue this through 2012 and go and see some more local beauty spots. This has had a positive start already as I visited Yorkshire Sculpture Park on Monday and took the photos below.
The second thing I want to do, no, need to do, is to get more organised with the storing of negatives. My girlfriend and I have already started doing this following a great tipster article from brittany.. You can see our efforts so far in the photo below.
But we still have a lot to sort and a long way to go.
Finally, and probably the single most important thing I want to do in 2012 is get developing at home! I used to go to a night college in Leeds where I learnt all about developing and printing my own shots and these remain to be some of my best pieces of work because I have had a hand in making them from start through to the end.
I was lucky enough to be given some darkroom equipment by a friend last year (as well as a beautiful Kiev 88!) so I am going to start using it this very weekend. I got a starter kit of chemicals from The Darkroom and I have plans to meet some friends this weekend and give it a go. You can see our lovely chemicals ready to be opened here.
Other than that I think my analogue bucket list for 2012 is a lot like everyone else’s really. Keep shooting, keep learning and have lots and lots of LomoFun!
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.
I'm Nick Page, a graphic designer based in the UK. After 20 years of working in advertising, I returned to film photography five years ago and found that the analogue life was just what I needed to get away from the "pixel perfect" images I deal with every day in my job.

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...
Hello, fellow lomographers! To be honest, ever since I started working last year, I haven't been able to write a single analogue lifestyle piece. But today I decided to write something about my days, especially about my weekend in Bandung. It's not much but I take it as the start of a new beginning in writing all over again here. So, here's my weekend in Bandung!
December brings with it Winter, the end of the year and the last chances to get those photographs taken that you wanted to do the rest of the year. I decided to kick off December with a slew of photography adventures and a few camera purchases.

This month, after waiting for three years, my city Como hosted the Tour of Lombardy, an important event in the male elite road cycling tour. With my Fed 3 loaded with black and white film and equipped with ultra sharp Industar 50/3.5 lens, I documented the parade of cyclists who went to the starting line after they registered. Take a look after the jump!
The Lomography Sprocket Rocket - my first analogue camera ever - and I have had some troubled times behind us. We have been involved in a stormy love-hate relationship for several years. But in the end, we luckily managed to get over ourselves and overcome our problems. Now he's my old time favorite. Old love never rusts, that is.
This article is a tribute to the street and humanist photographer Sabine Weiss. Considered a living legend in street photography, she likes to photograph daily lives of people, trying to capture the emotions she recognizes around her. 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!
