My Analogue Resolutions This 2013

1

Again, it's the first month of another year. There are too many analogue tasks waiting for me this 2013. My mind has been filled with lots of analogue ideas and dreams since last year. Thus, I wish I will be able to do it well. Below are my top 10 analogue resolutions for 2013.

Resolution 1: Buy a fridge for my films

Yes, I NEED a fridge to keep my films so that they will last longer. Most of my films had expired quite many years ago and some are going to be expired soon, so I now want a fridge to house them. Besides, I want to store my Polaroid films in the fridge to avoid crystal killer problem as well.

Resolution 2: Make short films with analogue photographs

A picture paints a thousand words while short film will bring out a story/concept much directly and more impressive, perhaps. The SuperSampler and LomoKino are great tools to start with. But, I wish to do more…maybe a short film combining analogue photographs with LomoKino film? Let’s start planning it!

Resolution 3 : Shoot more Polaroid photographs

Yes, I like Polaroid. But, the film is really too costly for me. I wish I am able to shoot at least 1 pack of film per month this year. Pray hard for no more crystal killer as previous film packs where the image was totally attacked by crystal killer and fade off after few months.

Resolution 4: Walk into strangers with analogue camera

Last year, I moved my first step towards strangers with Fujifilm Instax Mini camera and then, I walked to a group of kids with my La Sardina during my Hat Yai trip. Camera does bring the distance get closer between me as a traveler with the locals. I love this action, this interaction and this memory. From their curiosity, their question, my answer, to the communication, the instant photography result and their smile, everything had melted my heart. I will keep on doing this and perhaps my family and friends will do this with me as well.

Resolution 5: Practice more on portrait shooting

I shoot landscape more most of the time. Now, I wish to practice more on portrait shooting. Portrait shooting is not an easy job for me, especially street portrait/ street snap shot. It requires soul, attitude, story and so on. Get more inspiration from our fellow lomographers, their did very well capture.

Resolution 6: Get involved in more film swap projects

I did my first film swap with boobert last year. This year, I want to do more film swaps with local and overseas lomographers. There are too many great film swap photos that inspired me. I wish to get more surprise through film swap.

Resolution 7: Practice on long exposure and light painting

I guess, I do not have long exposure and light painting photo so far. This will be one of my 2013 mission. Let’s try something new and give new spirit to our daily life and city with long exposure and light painting.

Resolution 8 : Practice on double exposure

Double exposure is an great idea and it required creative concept to produce great masking photos as well. Most of the time, I just simply overlap my image without planning. Thus, photos look messy and without a focus point most of the time. This year, I want to do some “themed” double exposure shooting such as some great photos as showed at below.

Resolution 9 : Practice more with my cameras

Some cameras I only used one or two times even some cameras I never use it before. So, is time to bring out my cameras and practice more. I am so sorry to my cameras such as Holga 135BC, Diana Mini, Diana F+, Sprocket Rocket, Lubitel 166B and some other, sorry that I just keep you all in the cabinet most of the time.

Resolution 10: Shoot, shoot, and shoot some more

Yes, I intend to keep on shooting. Keeping films alive. Keeping analogue photography alive, and allow it to have a long life!

Happy 2013!

    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!

    My Day in Analogue: Weekends in Bandung

    Hello, fellow lomographers! To be honest, ever since I started working last year, I haven't been able to write a single analogue lifestyle piece. But today I decided to write something about my days, especially about my weekend in Bandung. It's not much but I take it as the start of a new beginning in writing all over again here. So, here's my weekend in Bandung!

    Falling In Love With The LC-A 120

    There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.

    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.

    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.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
