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!

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    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!

    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.

    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.

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.

    Falling In Love With The LC-A 120

    There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.
