My Analogue Resolution: A Better Lifestyle

5

As an art student, I have a big problem, and I think all of the "art people" out there may have the same problem as mine: We have a tendency to be lazy and to wait for the feeling of creativity to come at us first. So, here's my analogue resolution: let's see if I can fix this problem, at least for myself first!

Oh, I love my life. My hobby is sleeping, or sitting on the couch, while playing games on my mobile phone. Sometimes, I watch DVD on the computer while eating chips. And when my work’s deadline comes near, I stay calm, until it’s only a few hours left. I put on my serious mode, do my work as fast as possible, all while complaining why there’s only 24 hours a day, and still, while eating chips.

Help me! I have to escape from this evil cycle!

Luckily, we always know how to help ourselves. But why is it so hard to get out from the comfort zone?

So, these are my analogue resolutions:

1. Sleep early, wake up early.

There are a bunch of very successful people who get up early, including the CEO of Starbucks, the CEO of Disney, and George W. Bush. Even Benjamin Franklin is credited with the saying that perhaps started this whole trend in the first place: “Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”

2. Do not delay your job.

This is cliché, but it’s true! It may sounds nerdy, but it works! Being diligent always brings success to life.

3. Stop complaining.

Complaining doesn’t resolve a situation, and deep down, it doesn’t provide much satisfaction. Next time you find yourself complaining, take a breath and switch your focus to something worth your focus.

4. Get outside.

The average person spends about 90% of their times indoors. Staying indoors for too long can leave you bored, not to mention unhealthy. Fresh air, sunshine, and natural scenery provide peace, relaxation, greater psychological resilience, and stimulation of all your senses. And don’t forget to bring your lomography camera with you!

5. Have some fun.

Where do you find fun? Is it being creative, being alone, being in good company, enjoying the fresh air, laughing, going on an adventure, or perhaps trying something new? If you are able to find fun in everything in your life, trust me, the world is such a nice place to live in. And of course we find fun in Lomography! For me, the funniest camera is the Fisheye. What about you?

I hope my analogue resolutions inspire you! Have a nice day my, Lomo friends !

No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    The Go! Team in Dublin: No Flash Photography Please

    I have to admit that I’ve never liked using flash in public places. In some situations it can be distracting. Like concerts, for example. Can you imagine a live music show where people decide all of a sudden to use it at the same time?

    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.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
