So we've left 2012 behind and we now have in front of us a whole new year, a whole new opportunity to start new projects, take risks, and best of all, learn from our mistakes.
It’s always good to get a fresh start, with renewed energy and load of ideas bubbling inside your head. I’ve been giving it a thought of what I want to accomplish, and I’ve compiled a list with these goals and or aspirations whatever we may call them. So let’s take a look, shall we?
1. Shoot more 120 film and try different rolls.
Wondering through my albums I realized It’s been a long time since I’ve been shooting way more on 35mm instead of my beloved 120. I don’t know if it’s a pricing issue or the fact that it has become complicated go come by good 120 film rolls.
2. Write and shoot a short film with the LomoKino.
The LomoKino was a great discovery for me on 2012, it’s a camera that I’ve loved since the first moment I saw it. It has given me great satisfaction and the possibility of meeting great lomographers from all around the country. However, all the movies I’ve shot so far are tiny 30 sec or 2 min clips. For that reason, this year I would like to come up with a more ambitious project and create a short film, based on a script I write.
3. Film swap galore!
Unfortunately, I haven’t been very productive on the film swap section. This year, I want to change that, I’d love to have international film swaps as well as local ones. So if you’re interested on helping me out, leave a comment below!
4. Keep punching those keys.
I like to write, scratch that, I love to write, it doesn’t mean I want to write a book or anything, but I really enjoy sharing what’s on my mind and the Lomography Magazine is a great space to do it. So this year I want to continue writing all sorts of articles and share with the community my perspective on the world.
5. Give DIY a chance
I’m not very good at do it yourself (DIY) projects, so this year I would really like to start practicing. I’m not saying I expect to become a DIY master, but at least start tackling small projects and hopefully by the end of the year I’m satisfied with the results.
So, that’s pretty much my bucket list for 2013! Take some time to think about yours and write about it!
