I took my Belair with me to our family New Year's Eve Party...and the photos are simply stunning!
It was New Year’s Eve, and I was trying to decide which camera to bring along with me. I was wondering if I should take my small and handy Leica M4, (my bulky Mamiya RB67 was out of the question). I also didn’t want to bring my DSLR since I was meaning to shoot with film. Then, I remembered my Belair Jetsetter sitting in my cabinet next to my Diana F+ CMYK Edition. I bought it as a Christmas present to myself, but I never had the chance to use it since it arrived the same time as my RB67. S,o I decided that now would be a great time to use it.
With a 5 roll box of Kodak Portra 400 with me and the flash from my Diana F+, and the 6×9 mask attached, I was ready to shoot. The Belair X 6-12 Jetsetter was slick and stylish, and unique. It caught the attention of my wife’s cousins, and also her relatives. I guess no one really expected to see someone totting along a vintage looking analogue camera to a New Year’s Eve party. I burned through the first two rolls like nothing. Shooting with the Belair was a pleasure! The AE feature works quit well, and the Bulb funtion came in handy in getting those photographs of fireworks. All in all, it was a really capable camera.
Getting the negatives back from the lab was another surprise! The images were sharp, and it still has that signature lomo feel to them. Unfortunately, I had quite a number of chopped off heads. But I blame myself for not considering the vertical parallax when I took the photographs. All things considered, I am one happy puppy! I love using my Belair X 6-12 Jetsetter, and I look forward in uploading more photos from this slick, sexy, and outright awesome camera! BelAir X 6-12…simply bliss.

When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.
A couple of hours before the clock struck midnight and a new year finally began, my family and I bonded over instant photography, balloons, and party props before a freshly painted white wall. Voilà--an instant photo booth!

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.
A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?
I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.
Going away for the weekend is always fun, especially if, like me, you live abroad and go back to visit your home city! For my walk through Milan, I decided to bring with me the Lomo’Instant because well, I just love it! Here are my thoughts after this special weekend!
In 1958 the great photographer Robert Frank took a series of images of New York's street life with a Leica camera from a bus window, as in these series of photos that I took in my city Como with my trusty Lomo LC-A loaded with a Kodak Tri-X film. This is a tribute to a great camera and to a great photographer! Read more after the jump!
