I decided to visit those 'resting in peace' with my analogue camera. With the silent atmosphere and almost abandoned cemetery in Singapore, I've always planned on going for an analogue day here.
I came here in the morning and the weather was so scorching hot but I wanted to shoot some dramatic photographs using infrared film. So I used the Efke Infrared IR820 Aura 35mm. My bad, I didn’t use any filter for this shoot, and this was the mistake that I learn to hard way. To use infrared film, we need to have a good setting of exposures and infrared filters to come out with an incredible infrared image.
Here are some of my wrongly made infrared shooting. Somehow these black-and-white photographs show old and antique feelings to it. After awhile, I really liked the texture given by black and white. The grainy effect really works with the abandoned and ruptured concept.
Some tombstones are still intact and some almost look like debris. There are even trees growing out of some of the tombstones. I brought two more cameras with me, the LC-A+ and the La Sardinia because I was wondering how this place would turn out in analogue mono colour.
Shooting with the Canon EOS range captured more of the offerings and old tombstones, which dates back to the 1860s. Some old designs of tombstones are not even used in this century anymore. The fonts carved on the tombstones were from an old Chinese character fonts too. It might be an abandoned place, but I feel that I just went to travel back in time to AD1800.
Here is a brief about the Bukit Brown Abandoned Cemetery:
Estimated to house 100,000 tombs in a vast land size of about 0.86 square kilometers, Bukit Brown Cemetery has been abandoned and was closed in 1973. Bukit Brown was named after a British trader who arrived in Singapore in the 1840s and built his business here as well as a road called Bukit Brown Road in 1923 which is no longer in operation.
Going away for the weekend is always fun, especially if, like me, you live abroad and go back to visit your home city! For my walk through Milan, I decided to bring with me the Lomo’Instant because well, I just love it! Here are my thoughts after this special weekend!
Got scary ideas for Halloween? It's almost here and most of you are probably ready with the spookiest costumes ever! You can't let your spookiest best go by without capturing them, so load up those cameras, snap the terror away and turn it into Halloween fun. While you're at it, pick your best Petzval Halloween photos and join this rumble!
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!
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.
Hello, fellow lomographers! To be honest, ever since I started working last year, I haven't been able to write a single analogue lifestyle piece. But today I decided to write something about my days, especially about my weekend in Bandung. It's not much but I take it as the start of a new beginning in writing all over again here. So, here's my weekend in Bandung!
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.
It's been a boiling, scorching, baking hot summer here in the Philippines since March, and believe it or not, I haven't been to the beach yet. I'm going to do something about that, but not without making another playlist for the trip! This time, I decided to make a mix inspired by the summer vacations of my younger days.
This is a story of me and Sardine, my first ever analogue camera. We've been traveling for thousands of miles and met a lot of friends. Even though I have better cameras, Sardine is the one camera that will always be in my heart! So once again, this is my story with Sardine
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!
I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.
My brother had a photo exhibition last year at the North Sea Jazz Festival and got two tickets. So just like the old days with our father, we went to the Ahoy Rotterdam for an evening of jazz and other music. I was armed with an analogue SLR camera, telephoto lens, and sensitive film!
Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.
