If My Cameras Were Ball Players

5

The NBA season is close to its culmination, with Oklahoma, as of the moment, waiting for the winner of the Miami-Boston series. In this spirit, let me introduce you to my team of cameras, in basketball style.

Off the bench.

He is young and vibrant. Capable of making consecutive shots: at small forward: Oktamat.

He is light as a feather. Feared for his wide-open threes: at point guard: Vivitar UWS.

No-look passes and no-look shots are his thing. At shooting guard: Supersampler.

A veteran who gets the job done. At power forward: Taxona.

He makes only a few points, but those few are always big. A fan-favorite, at center: Holga.

Now! Meet the starting five!

At the point. In his fourth season, a prolific scorer, do-it-all: Diana Mini!

At small forward. Deadly in all ranges: Olympus XA!

At power forward. People say he is too fast for his size, he does not think twice: Nikon EM!

At center. Our 360 slam dunk champion. Towering head above shoulders: Spinner 360!

And to complete the line up, at shooting guard, the Michael Jordan of Lomography. The all-time great: LC-A+ RL!

Now that was fun! What about you? How would you introduce your cameras?

    I make personas for my cameras. At one point, they happen to come to life as Sims! From then on, I never looked back.

    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.

    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!

    My First Indisposable Project

    The idea behind this project was to shoot 24 moments in one week's time using a disposable camera. Incidentally, a friend from Seattle sent me two disposable cameras so I was finally able to participate. Disposable cameras aren't sold in Manila anymore. I timed my shoot during the week wherein I had to go out several times, also hoping for good weather.

    Fresh From the Lab: Take Off Your Socks and Shoes - It's Summertime!

    Every year, just a few weeks before summer, I dedicate a series of photos to the joy of living outdoors in this good season. One of the most common pleasures is taking one's socks and shoes off to feel the first warm rays of sun on our pale feet, which were prisoners inside shoes throughout the long winter season. So, it's time to take off your socks and shoes and relax barefoot! Where? Of course, on the walls surrounding the beautiful lake! Take a look!

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    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.
