Taking the Leap: From Digital to Analogue

7

These days, people are spoiled by small gadgets that do anything and everything for you. Smartphones are everywhere now. Even grandmas and grandpas are now sliding pages using tablets. But I’m gonna be different. I’m going take the leap back to analogue.

That’s right. I’m a total newbie in the analogue world. I am a grad student in business informatics and I have been surrounded by funky sophisticated gadgets all my life. But thank God for Lomography! I am now ready to explore the other side of photography, where they have a rule about NOT WORRYING ABOUT ANY RULES!

I browsed through the site and found soooo many interesting things to read and see. I never knew analogue would be this colorful! All these “ooohs”, “aaaahs” and “wow, that’s really cool” comments pushed me to want to know more about Lomography. Here’s a highlight of what I believe has inspired me to take up this new found analogue addiction. Thanks for the wonderful photos!

Now that I got myself wet with analogue holy water, I took a chance and applied for an internship at Lomography! And Tadaaaaaa! Poof! I’m an intern! Lomography took me under its wings, and now I get to borrow a camera for the time being, because I don’t have one.. YET!

Be sure to check out my upcoming posts for and update of my life as an intern at Lomography and my life with an analogue camera! Rest assured, you will never get bored!

See ya later alligator!
