My Lomo Beginning

Probably this will sound familiar, but a fact is a fact--I always prefer analogue photography.

Some years ago, when our friend zulupt, showed me his first lomo camera (it was a Black SuperSampler), I have never heard about Lomography.

I remember searching through the old site (yes, I’m from the time of the old site) trying understand what is Lomography. I want to be in this community, but I don’t have any lomographic camera, I thought. I know some soviet cameras from a long time ago, but I never had one. Until one day, I talked to a friend who lent me what would be my first lomographic camera: a heavy Fed 5.

I searched again on the internet, but this time, to find out how the Fed 5 works. Some days later, I loaded film on camera and shoot like crazy.

I didn’t like the results at the beginning, as everything was green. But with time I realized it’s the green hue that made these pictures special. From that day, I stayed addicted with lomography, and I’m a proud owner of several lomo cameras such as the Fisheye, LC-A, Lubitel, Holga, and Diana Mini.

Of course, all the photos above are from my Lomo beginnings!
