Lomography will be my forever love and I have the lifetime mark to prove it! I have revived my analogue love on my recent backpacking trip to Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia. Just goes to show that I will never turn my back on something that I really love.
In case you are wondering if the photo I have attached is a real tattoo… YES IT IS! I recently had an amazing backpacking adventure during the concluded Songkran Festival in Thailand. It was a wet and wild experience for me; it was actually my first time to attend this Thai New Year celebration. It was already my fourth visit to Thailand and it has always kept me interested and surprised in so many ways.
On my trip, I decided to take Bangkok as my first stop before heading to the provinces in the south and then to Singapore and Malaysia. Since Songkran has been known to be a crazy and exciting celebration, I had the guts to take my Lomo LC-A+ on a risky adventure. Loading it with Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 ISO Film which I purchased at the Lomography Embassy Bangkok in Siam Discovery, I had the chance to shoot away some memorable moments in this busy city turned water world metropolis.
I have so much captured in my 3-country escape and it’s in the process of uploading so keep yourself posted on my albums at my LomoHome. Enjoy a glimpse of some of the scenes at the recently concluded Songkran Festival 2013.
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.
This is the story of my first adventure on the beach this year. In the middle of June, I took my first sunbath along the seaside on a small public beach in Varazze - a rather small and unkempt place which I will never return to in the future. Read more to find out why!
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.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
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.
