This week's featured Analogue Lifestyle article is "The 7 Analogue Changes in My Life" by walasiteodito from the Philippines. The graphic designer muses on the things that have shifted in his life since he entered the Lomographic world. Read about it here.
“Being patient is one of the first changes I developed in converting to analogue. There are instances that I think I have to wait for the right moment to get the perfect shot. I think of shooting as a one chance opportunity, a chance to preserve that tiny slice of second that will only happen once.”
We picked this article because we believe that shooting analogue is a perspective-changing way of life and, as walasiteodito writes, the changes seem to be for the better! From patience to practicality, to networking and observing more, Lomography gives us room to grow and learn. :-)
Congratulations on winning 10 Piggies!

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.
I am Nick Page, a Hertford-based graphic designer. I do analog photography as an alternative to the pixel-perfect images I encounter every day. In this article, I'll tell you about my film swap technique for the solo film photographer.

Almost a decade has passed since but he still continues to capture his everyday life and the spirit of Istanbul's streets on film. Get to know our newcomer of the week from Turkey, Can Ortak also known in the community as psychedelica!
Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
Each person sees the world differently. How we see things are affected by our feelings, characteristics, and background.

He recreated his world, even with card-sized instant photos. Catch a glimpse of his moody yet tasteful pieces.
My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.
This article is a tribute to Yann Arthus-Bertrand, the French environmental photographer known worldwide for his aerial photography and environmental reportage. Over the years, this photographer has built a rich portfolio featuring the most beautiful landscapes in the world—including my wonderful Lake Como—taken from helicopters or balloons. Take a look!
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.
Christopher Logan has covered New York Fashion Week extensively with Lomography. He's had individual publication and drawn in crowds to our NYC Gallery Store. When he took the New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens to the first weekend Men's exhibition of New York Fashion Week shows, the results were astounding. His photos had their own takeover on the @AmericanPhotoMag Instagram feed and he was given a feature in GQ Brazil. Read on to get a glimpse of what he and the Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens can create.
This article is dedicated to one of the most important masters of photography, Robert Capa. Capa is well known for his photos of war, from the famous image of the Republican Spanish soldier collapsing backwards after being fatally shot to his images taken in Indochina. He was also a co-founder of the famous Magnum Photo Agency, the first cooperative agency for freelance photographers worldwide. For this article, I took advantage of a rare event held in my city, Como, some weeks ago: a military drill for civil protection purposes.
Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind.
Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!
