My 2012 resolution? Remember an analogue moment each day. Read about my own 365-day analogue project that I started in January of this year.
Two years ago I started having a look at some 364 projects, a photo a day. I really admire the perseverance and artistic overcoming abilities these people show. This year, I decided to do my own 365 day project. I didn’t want it to be digital, like most of them are, so I looked for some “data back” option, and I found my Yashica T4, and since January 1st of 2012 I’m taking one photo a day.
“The Tiniest Lights” was initially conceived with these rules:
Use only Neopan film, expired in 1999
Develop all films in December
I haven’t stuck to one of these rules. Someone said rules were meant to be broken. When I started this project I realised I don’t have enough Neopan films for the whole year, so in March I used another film. I also thought that black and white expired film isn’t as clear as a regular one after taking the photo, so I developed each film roll once it was finished.
I don’t know how the project will develop in the remaining year. But one thing I know is that next year, I will have 365 memories. Who knows if I will be able to remember everything that happened before or after the photo?

My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In January, I tried some camera add-ons. If you want to add a bit of extra bling to your pictures, you can put something either in front of or behind your lens. In this case, I did both.
It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
The latest addition to the Lomo’Instant family! Inspired by the Icelandic midnight sky, Get endless creativity, take multiple exposed instant snapshots, experiment with long exposure and light painting shots!
These lomographers are definitely off to a great start this year. They didn't simply maintain an active LomoHome. Each of the captivating snapshots they uploaded serves as a reminder of how talented and passionate they are. Congratulations to our most popular lomographers of January 2016!
My 2015 resolution is to do 12 photography projects, one for every month. In July, I tried freelensing or unscrewing the lens from my SLR and holding it in front of the camera body. By tilting the lens slightly I was able to change the focus. For this experiment, I used my Konstruktor and Olympus OM-1.
Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.
It had been five years since my last visit to the Côte d'Azur in France. During this period, I took to film photography again. And so for my return, I was looking forward to capturing, with my handy film cameras, some of that special light and blue sea that had drawn so many artists to the Riviera.
As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett sings about the frustrations, disappointments and the mundane aspects of life in her own animated and sometimes Dylan-esque style. Her debut album "Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit" was released this year and has been getting positive reviews. We tweeted about her new album and she responded to say that she loved Lomography. It was the perfect opportunity for a shoot and an interview.
