Playing with Color Like adi_totp!


What is Lomography to me? LIVING A HAPPY, COLORFUL LIFE! I just can't imagine we humans living without these bright lively colors around us. To document and enjoy every moments, I always put my trust in my cameras. That's why I always bring at least one camera everywhere I go because you never know what will happen. Let loose and play with colors around you. Now, it's time to play colors with adi_totp!

1. Shoot with slide films on sunny days!

We all know that already, don’t we? But to remind us of the good times of sunny days, we have to remember one rule. One simple rule! Bring your camera and put slide film on it. Be free and look at everything around you. Have fun! Look up! Look down! Take photos of yourself!

2. Try to find colorful objects!

Sounds so cliche? When I see color objects around me, I just think how to shoot this object and immediately “click!” Because these things are colorful, our job is just to click at it! Very simple but be careful of the light condition and set your camera first so you can get maximum potential of colors from the object that you shoot! Click!

3. Colors In The Dark!

Well, this tip means that you all don’t have to afraid to lose all colors when shooting at night or in the dark. Do long exposures! Use flash! Be creative and be playful with lights! Come on then, its time to put the lights on!

4. Look Up!

Who don’t love skies? So please, look up to the skies. You can almost touch the sky! Capture the colors of the sky!

5. Look Down!

Shoot your shoes! Shoot your feet! Shoot down and keep yourself bound in the ground!

6. Do MX!

Do double exposures, triple exposures, do multiple exposures! Be sure to find colorful objects and be wise with it so you can get that colorful MX! Good luck!

7. Experiment with different type of films!

Experiment with color negatives and even slide films. Shoot using them. Try different types of films so you can play with colors!

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

    For the past three months, I've been living alternately between three cities: Bandung, Bogor, and Jakarta. I'm originally from Bandung. I now work in Bogor, sometimes in Jakarta. I could be in Bogor on a Friday, Bandung on a Saturday, and Jakarta on a Monday. Shuttling between these three cities, I don't forget to document what I see and experience with my LC-Wide.

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In February, I wanted to take one of those long exposure night shots of traffic. You know the type: nighttime cityscape, with bright red and white stripes where traffic passes. I love those shots, but I had never gotten around taking one.

    Fresh from My Darkroom: The First Game of the New Rugby Season

    Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal. Take a look after the jump!

    Painting Delights: Going Wild with the Pixelstick

    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!

    My New York City Bike Ride Through Purple Eyes

    What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.
