I have been mulling over my bucket list for about a month now. There's so much I wanted to be in it but I have narrowed it down to the 5 most important ones.
1. Full analogue year.
Ever since I started film photography, I have always wanted to try using film exclusively for a year. It will be difficult but I believe it’s very doable. With all the camera I have in my collection, it can be a good exercise for my cameras.
2. Get the Sprocket Rocket.
This camera has been on my wish list ever since the white Time Square HK edition came out. I even bought the Digitaliza in preparation for my sprockets!
3. Discover a new camera.
I would consider myself an avid camera collector. But lately, there hasn’t been any camera that has piqued my interest. It seems I have almost lost interest in tracking down old cameras. Let’s hope this is just a momentary thing since I have been busy with work and home life. I really miss the feeling of excitement in tinkering and cleaning newly found treasures.
4. See the world thru different eyes.
I feel constricted with my composition. I see the same old images over and over again in my head. Time to get inspired again. Or maybe I should put to heart Rule #6 Don’t think!
5. Win a Rumble!
This is my 2012 mantra! At the very least I will try to submit stuff!
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.
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.
Our new website is now about 2 months old. After rolling out the most important features in the beginning, we have now been fine tuning them and working on the overall performance of the website. Taking a step back, we now want to ask what you think about it!
Lomography UK held Fisheye and La Sardina workshops for the Wilderness Festival this year and we now have the photos back from all the participants. There were hundreds of amazing shots but we have narrowed them down to the best ones.
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!
I have been using the Diana extensively for the past two years. It was actually the camera that got my into film photography (something that I am so grateful for). So I have compiled a list of Diana tips for y’all…
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.
We've been lending out the Petzval lens to some of our most loved photographers over the last 12 months. Some of the best shots have been soft, dreamy and full to the brim of beautiful bokeh! Have a look at some of our favourites here.

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.
