Show Your Stash, dopa!

2

For this week's installment of Show Your Stash, we present dopa and his "everyday bag," which he uses regularly as a university student.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

Hey, I’m dopa or Dominik, as my parents call me. I’m a lomographer from Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany and student of classics and chemistry at the University of Cologne. I’m photo addicted but also I’m into softball (an unusual sport here in Germany), music, films and television.

What have you got planned today and where are you going?

I wanted to show you my “everyday bag” as I use it on a common day at the University. I go there by train, so my bag has to be small to be comfortable. So I can’t take a large assortment of cameras with me.

Please itemize everything and tell us why you’re bringing each of them, or why they’re special.

Bag:
The bag is a tote bag from the Lomography Embassy in Paris. We have seen a lot with each other, and unfortunately this is not hard to tell, if you see it. Maybe I should wash it once. I have no special relationship with Paris, but I like the print. In addition, this is a clear recognition sign for other lomographers.

Cameras:

Today I have three cameras with me: The classic LOMO LC-A, the Diana F+ and the La Sardina St. Tropez. The LC-A I always take it with me because it is relatively small and so reliable and robust. A few months ago it got a new shutter release button because the old one was gone after a fall. Aside from this the camera has survived without any damage. In keeping with the summer she got a new skin with floral pattern from me.

Shots taken with the LC‐A

I really love the Diana F+, so I use it very often. The possibility of using it with different lenses makes it like you have several different cameras with you.

But sometimes, I feel the need for uncomplicated wide angle compact cameras, and this is the moment the La Sardina gets used. This one is my second, after I broke my first one that was my first-ever camera from lomography. I simply dropped it too frequently, when I used it.

Accessories:

I use the Lomography Portrait Strap for the Diana F+. In my bag were the wide angle and close-up lenses, I also took the Premium Glass Lens with me.

Film:
I have several films in my bag, beside the empty film boxes and cans. Today in my bag were:

3 dm Fotoparadies 200 Universal (cheap 135-36 film from a drug store)
1 Rossmann 400 (also cheap, also 135-36, also from a drug store)
1 AGFA Precisia CT 135—‐36 (I love to cross process it, but I think I’m going to use it in E6)
1 Lomography Redscale XR50-200 135‐36
1 Lomography Color Negative 100 120 (for the Diana F+)

But the cameras are also ready to shoot with:

1 AGFA APX 100 black and white (in the La Sardina)
1 Lomography Color Negative 100 (in the LC‐A)
1 Lomography Color Negative 100 (in the Diana F+)

Other Stuff/Miscellaneous:

As you can see I also have my ChromeBook. I can’t live without it, a paper notebook and different pens and a periodic table of elements in the bag. The orange Book is the “Shockheaded Peter“, but it is the Latin edition “Petrus hirsutrus”.

My brown wallet is in there so that I can reach it quickly when asked to show the ticket for the train. Last but not the least there is a measuring tape to get the correct distance for close up shots with the Diana F+.

Thanks to *dopa* for showing his stash and sharing his analogue adventure!

    Storytelling with Petzvals: Alex Timmermans and the Art of Collodion

    Not long after Alex Timmermans purchased his first digital camera at the turn of the century, he quickly realized the trappings of digital photography couldn't fulfill his personal photographic desires. He then began searching for a more challenging process — one that wasn't so predictable. His journey eventually landed him back at the roots of analogue photography, specifically employing the wet plate collodion process using original Petzval lenses. This antique photographic process found in him a renewed inspiration and has since become his passion, which is evident in both his words and his images.
