My 2012 in Analogue: 5 of My Favourite Photos

This year, I have taken some photos that I am really rather proud of. In this article, I will talk about 5 photos that I have taken this year that I love, and why I love them.

This first photo is now the most popular photo in my Lomohome with over 200 likes. It is of my neighbour’s dog Aldo. Me and Aldo had a bit of a rough start when they first got him in 2011 as he wasn’t very well socialised and tried to bite me more than once. He has calmed down a lot now though and we play with him a fair bit. This was also one of my first forays into tungsten film and I was using a borrowed Canon EOS 3000N (a camera which I now also want for myself as I love the results so much). The neighbours also love this cute photo of their dog, who is basically like their baby!

Early in 2012 I got a refurbished Olympus Trip 35 and I fell in love with it from the very first roll. This photo was taken in the woods near my house on the first day I had the trip and I just love the whole roll. This then became my go-to camera of 2012 and I have taken it to lots of places since. Also, those woods are probably my favourite place in the world so I am glad my first roll (like many of my first rolls to be honest) was shot here.

I absolutely love this photo of Newton Faulkner using my LC-A+ to take a photo of me. This was shot at Coppafeel’s annual festival “Festifeel” which I was lucky enough to attend via a competition on Lomography. I really like Newton Faulkner’s folky sound and it was great to meet him in person and get him to pose with my camera like this. He is a really lovely guy and in fact the whole festival was fab. I would love to be able to attend again next year.

I like this photo because I have been working really hard on my double exposures throughout 2012 and trying to make them better and line them all up and be a bit more adventurous with them. I think I have improved a lot in this area since I started Lomography and I hope to continue to improve throughout 2013. I have even got Claire asking me for tips now so I must have gotten better. This shot was taken towards the end of this year and I really like the shapes in it and I think it is now one of my favorite doubles.

A big thing for me this year was my awesome holiday to Bulgaria (see location article for more photos of this trip). I love most of the photos that I took there as they remind me of some super fun times with friends and loved ones. This one however is a bit of a classic just because it sums up everything I love about Eastern Europe. The health and safety laws in the UK are so strict that a burnt out vehicle in the countryside would not last more than a day before it got moved. But I really think it adds a bit of character to a landscape and I wish I could shoot scenes like this far more often than I get the chance to.

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.

    This article is a tribute to an important street photographer, Edouard Boubat. His pictures are characterized by great poetic touch, strong social sensitivity, and utmost respect for people and places. Inspired by a book which contains Boubat's photos taken in the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, I pay homage by showcasing some of my photos taken within the same geographic area.

    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.

    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.

    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!
