One Day, One Film, One Life.

4

I am capturing what I do on a regular basis in 36 photos. This is something my narcissistic side can appreciate, being the subject and the photographer at the same time. All the photos here were taken on the 19th of March, 2012 with my Fujica ST605N loaded with a 200 ISO color negative film.

07:00 – My boyfriend’s alarm goes off. I have the day off, so no way I’m leaving the bed. We bought a new one and it is too comfortable.

09:00 – Sunlight woke me up. I didn’t mind because that guarantees a great start. Today, I am only planning to do fun things, that’s the advantage of being a graduate. We don’t think of the disadvantages today.

09:05 – Coffee and getting ready…

10:00 – Choices choices… what to eat, what to wear?

10:30 – I’ve been living in a cute Amsterdam neighborhood called the Jordaan for half a year and I love it! On Mondays, there is the Noordermarkt where you can find lots of treasures ( and trash…)

10:45 – I really love shopping for (healthy) groceries but when it comes to chocolate, I just have to have it and take it home!

11:00 – Listening to some music, surfing the internet… mail, Facebook, news, blogs etc…

12:00 – I had to repair a sweater that I knitted for someone (I have to make money in some way). I destroyed some of my old jeans shorts. These are things that I only do when I feel like it, and today is one of those days.

12:45 – Lunch. Avocado with eggs.

This is what I drag with me all the time…

13:00 – Drinking coffee with a friend. It’s her birthday so time for pie! As always, by bike was in between other bikes!

13:30 – Pie/scones/coffee and fresh juice at the Bakkerswinkel outside in the sun! Spring! You can always recognize my drink because of the lipstick mark.

14:30 – Strolling around town without money because the life of a graduate is (unfortunately) not filled with unlimited amount of Euros. But I like visiting the 9 Streets (really nice shopping area) for free! Unless I go into a store like the Lomography Gallery Store (located on the herengracht/wolvenstraat).

16:00 – Fresh mint tea. Trying to edit my thesis, but the sun was so distracting I got lost at page 3.

18:00 – Home again!

19:00 – Forgot to photograph my dinner. Too hungry. I ate a very delicious pasta with cheese/spinach and small peas, chicken and avocado. Result: dirty dishes.

20:30 – Me and my boyfriend go to the movies a lot, but today I wanted to spend the night on the couch.

22:00 – Cleaning my face, taking a shower and drinking my last cup of tea for the day.

23:00 – Another day has passed, with not that much adventure, but 36 photos were taken. And those ordinary moments are worth it. They complete my life!

    Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 120: Perfect for Endless Multiple Exposures!

    About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!

    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.

    Seeing Manila in a Whole New Light

    I've photographed this city many times in the past—in color, black and white, and even in redscale. One day in March, the streets of Manila once again became my subject. Only this time, they turned into otherworldly places as the LomoChrome Turquoise drastically shifted its colors...at least on film.

    Perfect Combination for a Hazy Day: Lomo LC-A and a Pushed Ilford HP5+

    In this article, I'll show you how the Lomo LC-A loaded with the versatile Ilford HP5+ can make the most out of a hazy morning. To capture the whirlwind of a bicycle race, I pushed the film to ISO 800. The legendary Minitar 1 lens and this classic Ilford film are a perfect combination if you love black and white photos.

    A Salute to the Masters: R.I.P. (A Tribute to George Krause)

    This article is dedicated to the multifaceted American photographer George Krause and to his series depicting funeral monuments realized between 1962 and 1963. I was able to know about this series thanks to an important essay on photography written by former Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Director of Photography, John Szarkowski. For this tribute, I loaded my trusty Praktica camera with a roll of Ilford film and took a series of photos in the Monumental Cemetery in my city, Como. Take a look!

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 5

    Last week, I received the strangest thing through my letterbox. It was a postcard with this photograph on 1 side. The photo is of me sitting by the sea whilst I was on vacation last year. But I have literally no idea who took this shot – That’s why I came here, to ask for your help on my search for my mysterious photographer and to try and get to bottom of the riddle they wrote me. Please help me if you can!

    From Russia with Love: Motorama Shoots with the La Sardina Splendour

    I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.

    A Salute to the Masters: Buraco (A Tribute to Alfred Eisenstaedt)

    Alfred Eisenstaedt was one of Life Magazine's greatest photographers, known for his ability to immortalize the storytelling moment of many public events in history. To write this tribute to him, I chose a subject that he photographed in different places and times: card players in public places. The photos in this article were taken at the Patronal Feast of my city Como, during a series of buraco's lessons held by a local card players club.

    At the end of March this year, my friends and I went to Bromo in East Java. We went from Jakarta to Yogyakarta for one day before heading to Mt. Bromo. We decided to take photos of everything there with our analog cameras.
