My First Lomos!

2

I'm 13 years old... and I want to tell you about my first lomo experience.

Four years ago, my aunt got her first lomo camera, this was a Colorsplash Camera. Since this moment I´m very curious about those little stuff.

When I knew about Lomography I only used digital cameras. So I was very surprised that this one uses film. A little strange thing for a digital daughter.

I saw how these cameras made better photographs than digital cameras. And I started to love them.

This year, my aunt bought a Fisheye Camera for me for my birthday, but I´m waiting for it now. So my aunt asked me if I want to use her Actionsampler, for practice.

To use the Actionsampler, was amazing. It was a great experience and the photographs are not too bad for being the first ones in my life. I loved “don´t think, just shot” in the downtown. The people look at me with my little plastic “toy”. My first film was finished in two days.

I know my friends don´t know about these film cameras. But I´ll try to keep the film magic for a long time.

Maybe I´m one of the younger Lomographers. And now I only want to learn and learn more about Lomo and the analogue love…..

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage.

    Film Manipulation: Kodak Slides and Bleach

    I want to share with you my experience with some slides when I was in Russia. I'm very sorry for them because I messed them up. They're just ruined and they'll never be the same! But hey, I have thousands of them, so I guess it's not a big deal after all.

But either way, please shout out in the comments what secrets or sophistries you think I found through its twisting branches.

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 3

    “Let me tell you about my life turning blue”. Those were the first words the guy on the bench said as he sat down beside me whilst I was eating my lunch. Usually, I prefer to eat alone but there was something about this opening sentence which really intrigued me; so I told him “Sure buddy, go ahead. Tell me about your life in blue”.

    Chemical Manipulations with the Lomo’Instant

    Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!

    My Year in Analogue: Something New, Something Old

    Hi, everyone! I'd like to share with you my 2014 summary on analogue photography. Some things I did were completely new, while some were my good old habits. This year I learned how to develop black and white film, which I consider my greatest milestone. But the most important thing is that in 2014, I remain in love with Lomography! And the rest? Well, let's see...
