20 Lomo Milestones Part 2: 11 -20

1

In the past 4 years that I have been using Lomography cameras, I have used a number of cameras and films and tried to experiment with my techniques. Here is part 2 in my list of 20 Lomo milestones.

11. My first LC-A photo.
After 3 years of using various Lomo cameras, I finally got an Lomo LC-A and I just love it, I now take it everywhere with me and I love trying out new films in it too.

12. My first gig photo.
Having a light meter on my LC-A meant that I could risk taking photos inside and the rates of success would be much higher. I’m so glad that I tried it and got this shot, my boyfriend and I go to a lot of gigs so it was fun to capture that aspect of our life.

13. My first black and white film.
For some reason, black and white film never won me over until I started to use it. I love color and the idea of purposefully choosing not to have any in my photos seemed weird. But now I adore it and I find the whole process completely different to color photography. These photos were taken in Liverpool with my Diana Mini.

14. My first multi-lens camera.
I love these multi-lens cameras, they are so fun and they capture moments of time so well, especially when there is movement!

15. My first LomoKino movie.
When I first saw the LomoKino was announced, I knew I had to get one and I haven’t regretted it at all. The first video I made the day after my camera came in the post and although it was just my walk to work, I really love it as it meant I could share something that I did every day in a different, more involved format.

16. My first random dog photo.
One of my favorite things to take photos of is dogs, especially random dogs that I see in places, and this was the first ever random dog photo that I took with my first roll of film in my Holga. Of course I didn’t realize that this photo was the start of something when I took it, but I like that I’ve taken many more photos of dogs since then.

17. My first double exposure with instant film.
I’ve already included a double exposure on this list and instant film, but I’ve added this too as I never expected that I would be able to combine the two together. For this photo I used a Polaroid land camera and used the same technique as I would with any of my Lomography cameras.

18. My first ever camera that I made myself…
As part of my Lomography journey I have learnt so much about film cameras and how they work. One great way to learn more is to build one yourself and I was so pleased that it actually worked when I put a film in it!

19. My first Tungsten film.
I love trying new films and every time Lomography announces a new one I tend to get it and this film did not let me down. I love the tones and results are unpredictable enough to keep me excited about it.

20. My first published photo.
I took this photo in my first year of owning my Holga 135bc and its been included in the FPoE book ‘Still’, I’m really glad that they liked it enough to feature it!

    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)!

    Chemical Manipulations with the Lomo’Instant

    Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!

    Reviving An Old Polaroid 1000 Camera

    Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!

    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.
