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!

    Shinjuku Park in full bloom: A perfect time to use expired films and travel to the past!

    I went to Shinjuku Park in order to celebrate spring and enjoy the Japanese tradition of "hanami," which means the "contemplation of cherry blossoms." I tried to capture the beauty of cherry trees with my Lubitel 166B loaded with an expired roll of Agfa Portrait 160 film. I obtained a sepia effect on my photos, and I felt as if I just traveled through old Japan.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
