Playing Around with My Lomopet Cameras: the La Sardina and Holga Cat

I’ve wanted to have a pet fish and cat for the longest time. But my lifestyle doesn’t permit me, so I got a La Sardina and a Holga Cat instead. Here’s my first time to play with my newest pets.

Before even playing with them, I thought of names to call them. As I am reading Haruki Murukami’s book, 1Q84, I adopted the character names and gave them to my cameras.

I named my La Sardina as “Tengo” and my Holga Cat as “Eri”.

I got to play with Eri first. I loaded her with an expired Konica Chrome Centuria. I took a photo of skies, my friend, our dog, our street, the mall, and my special friend.

Even though it’s called a “Holga” camera (as it is made by Superheadz), it also has some vignette and great dreamy colors, which the original Holga produces.

I got my Tengo (La Sardina Marathon) from boobert. From Makati, my friend and I went to find a developing shop in Magallanes. It turned out that we did a photowalk as well.

This is my first Wide Angle camera and it’s a Lomo. I fell in love with it because of thethingamajig's post. Loaded with Lucky Super 200, I got the dreamy feel that I wanted. It seems to be a good lomo camera for me.

These two cameras are easy to bring around, so convenient as pets. :)

    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!

Its creative director, Scot Bendall, is a Lomographer. He accepted the challenge to play around with and customize a La Sardina DIY. See his La Sardina creation and illustrations after the jump.

    From Russia with Love: Motorama Shoots with the La Sardina Splendour

    I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.

    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)!

    Object of My Affection: Subbuteo

    In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    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.
