My First, My Last, My Everything in Lomography

If you want the better future of analogue don't forget the past and your very first steps.

My first “burning” of the film to get some light leak effect. More than I expected, I’m very happy with the result!

My first “Don’t think just shoot” shot when the package of the camera arrived at my home. When I saw the result I just can’t stop shooting with film and my now deceased Holga 135BC:

My first shot using my precious Horizon Perfekt camera. The result was underexposed because I made the mistake of using the B normal setting on a sunny day.

The first time I boiled film to get such a wet bubble effect. I’ve written this to remind me that this was my first and I never boiled film again since. I should try it again!

My first time doing handmade redscale film using Kodak Gold color negative film and always did D.I.Y. redscale with any film I have since that first try.

My first time winning an unforgettable gift from Lomography after being one of the runner-up of Seoul rumble. I still shoot with my precious La Sardina gift.

My first time being the winner of the rumble at lomography.com. It was also the first time for me to win in a photography website that I joined.

My first time doing doubles/filmswap with hakimbo05 from Singapore and made me wanna do more and more swaps with lots of lomo lovers all over the world.

My first sprocket hole scan and I very, very much want to do it again! It made me want to save more and more to buy a Digitaliza and a scanner to DIY scan my film with sprocket holes.

My first time doing DIY splitzer after being inspired much by hundreds of amazing splitzer photos by dakadev_pui and hodachrome.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    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)!

    My Day in Analogue: Living Between Three Cities - Bandung, Bogor, and Jakarta

    For the past three months, I've been living alternately between three cities: Bandung, Bogor, and Jakarta. I'm originally from Bandung. I now work in Bogor, sometimes in Jakarta. I could be in Bogor on a Friday, Bandung on a Saturday, and Jakarta on a Monday. Shuttling between these three cities, I don't forget to document what I see and experience with my LC-Wide.
