My 2013 Analogue Resolutions

2

The past two years have been extremely busy for me -- I took a lot of photos and I've absolutely loved it. I can't wait to take even more photos in 2013 and here are my resolutions to help me do it!

All my film photos from 2012 in one place

1. Take at least one roll of film a week. I actually set this for a goal last year, but I didn’t quite manage it — again, I managed just under 48 rolls, which was frustrating. Perhaps this year, I will finally hit 52.

Photos taken with a Ricoh 500G, Olympus Trip and Recesky Gakkenflex, cameras I’ve only used once or twice so far

2. Use some cameras that I’ve only used once or twice. Last year, I set an aim to use cameras that I’d never used before and although I did enjoy it, I found it hard to get myself motivated to use cameras where I had no idea what the results would be. Luckily, I have a few cameras that I’ve only used once or twice where I do know what the results with be, so I’m excited to use them again this year.

Photos with Lomo Tungsten and Kodak Ektar, two films I tried in 2012

3. Try out more different films. When I first got my Holga, I only used one film, but over the past 3 years I’ve tried more and more. This year, I want to try as many different films out as I can and really experiment with them and the cameras that I already have. There are still so many films that I haven’t tried, I can’t wait to start.

4. Start taking portraits. Last year, I tried to populate my photos by taking more photos of people and I think I definitely succeeded. Now, I want to take it a step further and attempt portraits. I love photos of people and I really like the idea of trying to capture someone on film in the way that I actually see them. Hopefully, I can pull it off.

Successful double exposures from the last couple of years

5. Experiment more with double and multiple exposures. I have taken a fair few of these types of photos, but I never plan them out, I just take advantage of situations. This year, I’d like to try and be more creative with the double and multiple exposures that I take.

And finally, a goal that will always be on my list!

6. Take too many photos. Though I am pretty sure that you can never take too many photos really.

Happy Analogue 2013!

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part Two)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.

    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.

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."

    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)!

    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.

    Two Days and One Night in Vibrant Sapa

    For three months last year, I traveled to 11 cities of eight Southeast Asian countries. My first destination from my hometown of Seoul was Vietnam. After 10 days in Hanoi, I joined a group tour to Sapa, an area known for its hill tribes. This is a photo story of my two days and one night in this remote but vibrant place.
