My Best Lomographs of 2012

1

Dear Lomo-magic, this year I have been a girl very good in terms of photos. I have experienced, tested new films and investigated with new cameras and, in addition, I have shared with some of my lomo-friends experiences and films.

Perhaps this has been my busiest year ever since I discovered the world of lomography and this is reflected in the pile of pictures i have posted (in comparison to previous year). It has been very complicated select only a few, but there are. I’ve chosen 12 photos, by the 12 months of the year.

January

I begin the selection with a photo in which I am the protagonist. It was a day of January testing different approaches and the result, for me, the best.

February

This is an afternoon walking through my village I found a lot of trucks like the “American’s” and I could not resist to take photos of them. I love so impressive that seems the truck and the colors of the Elitechrome with the Diana Mini:

March

We ran a week-end in Zaragoza, in particular to the “Monasterio de Piedra”. This photo makes me feel the same sense of mystery that I lived in the monastery.

April

This belongs to one of my personal challenges. Get good black and white photos! And when I saw the result …I loved it! So much that now I have one always loaded in some of my cameras.

May

The month of flowers, the spring, my birthday! It is my favorite month and I’m going to leave in one of my “most favorite” of this year. Also in black and white and strolling in Madrid and one night, still cold, I took a portrait of my favorite guy:

June

My chosen for the middle of the article is a very special one. My nephew is born and the Tata (aunt) ran to the hospital to capture what will be one the earliest memories of him.

July

I like it! I made it with the Diana Mini, that is one of my preferences and a film (in danger of extinction, unfortunately) The Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100, which I love!

August

My little love, protagonist of many of my photos, this is sweet and innocent with her typical touch of roguery.

September

The doubles are always there. In each and every one of the films that I shoot with, there are some, but few come out as I want. This is an example of my best doubles:

October

Again , a photo of my nephew. Now more plump and under the water.

*November *

Already reaching the final straight, I choose one of the photos of this summer. Simply brilliant.

Credits: marieta

*December *

Already the end of the year and the last photo that I wanted to show you is that with which was for the whole year. I have done the best and worst, sure! But this is defined as my highest goal achieved. A double exposure captured as I saw in my mind, I say, is even better! And this is the first that my photo has left me with an open mouth. For me, my best shot.

Credits: marieta

I hope you have liked these photos! I have the best and worst, but the important thing about all this is that each day I am learning new things from each of them.

Also, you’ll realize that I am in many of the photos. That’s because Luis, timid, doesn’t want to get his own lomohome, but works wonders and could not leave them overlooked. Lomo hugs and until the next year!

    I participated in the Kickstarter campaign and purchased my very own new Petzval lens. I can't wait to use with with my digital camera to experience its wonderful bokeh effect. I also wanted to try its effects when using a film camera but the lens has an EF mount. I didn't have a Canon camera. See what I did with it after the jump.

    I want to share with you my experience with some slides when I was in Russia. I'm very sorry for them because I messed them up. They're just ruined and they'll never be the same! But hey, I have thousands of them, so I guess it's not a big deal after all.

    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.

    An Afternoon in Tagaytay Highlands

    I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.

    At the Funfair with my Horizon Perfekt

    Every year my city Como hosts, for the Easter period, a great fun fair. This is a great occasion to test a camera, to make experiments with films, to have fun and to photograph people while also having fun! This year, I used my gem, the wonderful Horizon Perfekt (that I bought from the Lomography Online Shop) loaded with a timeless film, a Kodak Tri-X 400 developed, as usually for b/w, by myself.

    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...

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.
