UK CitySlicker Claire: My Analogue Wishlist

1

For this month’s CitySlicker task I was asked to write my analogue wishlist for the coming year. This has been an easy task as I always have some products in my wishlist in the Lomography Online store. Here I talk about a few things I hope to pick up in 2013.

1. Diana Baby 110 Gold Edition

This is currently the product at the absolute top of my lust list. I loved the Diana Baby when it came out but I decided to hold off and see if a new version of it came out. When I saw the gold one I knew I would just have to own it soon. It looks so cute, a bit like jewellery and a bit like a camera, and I love 110 film at the moment after getting a Fisheye and a Pentax Auto 110. Here are some shots from the community that I am just in love with.

2. LC-A+ Splitzer

Also, one of the items I have been dying to get hold of for a little while is the LC-A+ Splitzer. My other half does have one and I am allowed to borrow it on occasion, but I would like it if we could have one each as he teaches me things and then we could go out and splitz together. I have had a go at using it on my own but this happened:

…when I was hoping to achieve some amazing shots like I have seen here in the community:

3. Lomography X-Pro Sunset Strip film

I used one roll of this, which I had got as a gift by accident last weekend. I quite like the colours of the film, which you can see below:

I do wish however that I had used this in a camera with a light meter for slightly better colour results as some of the shots I have seen taken on it are brilliant. Plus I must use it in my Sprocket Rocket for the full effect.

4. Horizon Perfekt

I have had one of these on my wishlist for a long time now and I hope that with my piggie collecting skills, 2013 can be the year I actually get to own one. I used one in London in August and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it (although I just remembered I need to get someone to scan my negatives for me!). It is an expensive camera, but the build quality is really really good and the photos it can produce are just phenomenal here in the community.

5. Lomo Life: the Future is Analogue Book Set

I cannot wait to read these books. I saw an advert for them in an article in UK newspaper the Metro and I have been dying to read them ever since. I had a glimpse of them at the Lomo Store in Manchester and they look excellent – 20 years of Lomography in 2 hardback books is just too good to miss!

    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.

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 5

    Last week, I received the strangest thing through my letterbox. It was a postcard with this photograph on 1 side. The photo is of me sitting by the sea whilst I was on vacation last year. But I have literally no idea who took this shot – That’s why I came here, to ask for your help on my search for my mysterious photographer and to try and get to bottom of the riddle they wrote me. Please help me if you can!

    A Salute to the Masters: Sports Through A Plastic Lens (A Tribute to David Burnett)

    The great American photographer David Burnett is famous for his unusual photos of sports competitions. He uses a tilt-shift lens to create miniature fakes, or a simple Holga camera to shoot in black and white. To write this tribute, I used my Holga to take some pictures of amateur sport activities around my city. 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.

    My Year in Analogue: Something New, Something Old

    Hi, everyone! I'd like to share with you my 2014 summary on analogue photography. Some things I did were completely new, while some were my good old habits. This year I learned how to develop black and white film, which I consider my greatest milestone. But the most important thing is that in 2014, I remain in love with Lomography! And the rest? Well, let's see...

    Finally, My Own Petzval Lens

    In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.

    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.
