My 2013 Analogue Resolutions

In this brand new year of 2013, I hope that I would be able to continue sustaining my analogue life without any obstruction and opposition. Here are my 5 resolutions to be achieved in this year.

Ever since I have started my journey in Lomography, I could hardly remember the existence of my digital camera. I cherish Lomography as it sparks creativity, trains me to be patient in capturing the ‘right’ moment, and at the same time, enables me to act fast whenever I see something that lures my eyes. This year, I would like to accomplish the following:

Resolution #1: Try out new film
Being an 8-month-old Lomo baby, I am still a curious noob who continues to explore and look up to the ‘seniors’; reading as much tipster articles to strengthen every knowledge about analogue photography. Knowing the basics is the origin of creativity! I have experimented on a few types of film in 2012, and I won’t stop trying out new films, either it be 120 or 35mm, until my wallet suffers starvation (maybe).

Photos captured with film I want to try so badly.

Resolution #2: Explore the full potential of my cameras
Recently, I won a Diana F+ Cuvee Prestige from a Corky Rumble organized by @lomographysg, which is an added companion to my Diana Mini and La Sardina.

This is my first time winning a camera and a 120, no less. There is so much about Diana F+, aside from the different films that can fill it. It will also give me the chance to attempt doing pinholes for the first time. My La Sardina is 4-months-old now and it has yet to consume 10 rolls of film. I wish I could dig out every single traits in these cameras.

Resolution #3: Write at least 2 articles per month
I love to express myself in words and pictures. That pushes me to share my happiness and my victorious explorations to the community as I gain more analogue knowledge. Last year, I successfully published 12 articles, and I will strive hard to produce even more in 2013. This is also a way to save me some money by earning piggies for films or even another camera.

Resolution #4: Socialize in the analogue world
I have not yet to participate in a Lomography workshop before. That is largely due to my schedule that forbids me to attend most of the workshops. Also, sometimes, I get to be a little bit shy while making new friends. But this year I want myself to be different! I want to step out of my comfort zone and be sociable.

Resolution 5: To be inspired and to inspire
There are so many talented members in the community. The one I admire the most is @hodachrome. His shots are always so stunning that I could stare it out of its awesomeness. Some photos are very harmonious in a sense that it is so peaceful. I would definitely continue to be inspired, and my way to pay back is to bring more people to the Lomography family, so that the precious moments in this world could be captured in analogue.

These resolutions are now carved in my mind. Lomography will never leave my life and neither will I leave it. I wish myself and everybody else the very best. Have a SHUTTER-BLAST in 2013!

    It's been a boiling, scorching, baking hot summer here in the Philippines since March, and believe it or not, I haven't been to the beach yet.

    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 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.

    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.

    Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 120: Perfect for Endless Multiple Exposures!

    About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!
