My first analogue camera was the Blackbird Fly. I bought it from a person and not from a shop. It was used and most important is, I only got the camera
Last two years, I met this inspired person at that time he was exhibiting his own Lomo walls at the cafe where I am studying right now. His name is Mohd Kamarul Azri. I was so amazed with his Lomo wall and I had a conversation with him. After that, I decided to buy my own camera that is Blackbird Fly. Unfortunately, as I bought it used I only got the camera without any accessories such as a lens cap and film masks. Thank god it has strap on it. At first, I loved the sprocket holes in the pictures taken with this camera but for sprocket scanning, it costs more than normal scanning. (Normal – RM 5 Sprocket- RM8) Its quite an amount of money for that kind of scanning. I have tried googling it to find the mask but most of the sellers don’t want to sell that thing by itself. If i want that mask, I have to buy all the items offered including the camera itself. So I decided to make my own 24×36mm mask . I successfully made it !!
Super hard glue
Craft knife or any very sharp knife
First, measure the distance between desired bound of exposure to the wall inside the frame of that camera and cut it right. Also measure the distance between the bottoms of the film mask space to the film plane. So there will be 2 of them. Glue them together at the angle of 90 degrees and let it dry. After it had strongly attached to each other, place it on your Blackbird Fly camera and start shooting !!
And this is normal shot (without any film mask):
It saves my cost of scanning film although I sacrifice the wonder of the sprocket holes.
I bought the LomoKino years ago, and since then I've been having great times with it. I will continue documenting my daily life with the LomoKino, which is Lomography in motion! You can see the movements and facial expressions of people - it’s priceless! Documenting life in moving pictures, the Lomokino can be used as a camera that not only shoots moving pictures but also works like the multi-frame wonder camera, Supersampler!
The idea behind this project was to shoot 24 moments in one week's time using a disposable camera. Incidentally, a friend from Seattle sent me two disposable cameras so I was finally able to participate. Disposable cameras aren't sold in Manila anymore. I timed my shoot during the week wherein I had to go out several times, also hoping for good weather.
Chronicling my summer’s last hurrah with the Horizon Perfekt was more than what I could have imagined. Not only did I get cool remarks about its look and sweeping lens mechanism, I also took home panoramic shots that just swept my summer escapades with analogue goodness.
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.
Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!

August 24, 2014 was a great day because of the We The Fest 2014! Maybe it's too early to call it the biggest summer music festival in Jakarta because this has just been its first edition. Nevertheless, my girl and I enjoyed every moment of it!
In summer last year, my sister and her lover exchanged "I do's" after five colorful years of happiness and making future plans. It was the perfect occasion to grab some of my cameras and eternalize one of the most beautiful days not only of her life, but also mine.
This autumn, Como hosted a very important sporting event: a 6,000-meter rowing race on the lake. The race was first held in 1893. After 123 years, the Trofeo Villa D'Este has been revived. I documented this event with my trusty Praktica camera and two lenses, a 50mm and 135mm.
