Music is Analogue


Lomography and music are for me, passions I can't live without. So it's logical that to use them during concerts was going to fill my life of fabulous moments.

With my Lomo LC-A+, I live these concerts with an indescribable intensity, the music and what the musicians make us share seem to me to cross the objective and remain to engrave in me.

The technical conditions to realize a successful concert photo are doubtless difficult, projectors changing every second, the low light and different according to the group and the room ; the musicians non-stop in movement ; the angle of view, the movements of the crowd, etc.
Nevertheless in spite of these difficulties, Lomography has its place, a place for vibrate in every sound, in every grain !

For the choice of film, for me it’s better to choose sensibilities high as 800 ISO because of little of light, but nothing prevents you from playing to change the ISO of your LC-A+ or to use more low if the light is sufficient.

As regards my choice of camera, it’s limited because I have only a LC-A+ and a Diana F+ (I’m a beginner in Lomography!). But even if my apartment became supernaturally a Lomography Gallery Store (I’m also a dreamer!) my choice would go on a LC-A+ for its on-point automatic exposure and its expanded film ISO settings from 100 to 1600 (important qualities with regard to the technical difficulties previously quoted), and the possibility of making double exposures, which gives a surrealist side to the concert.

But even if certain cameras and films are better adapted than others, any photo will bring satisfaction because it will be the concrete and tangible memory of this magic moment. In fact, the technical difficulties give an additional surprise.

Enjoy LOMO ! Enjoy MUSIC !

    My First Indisposable Project

    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.

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

    "Magical" here means that every time I use the Diana F+, the results are always beyond both my expectations and imagination. That's why I always use it when I feel like doing something different. It has never failed me since day one; I even always bring this camera during my trips!

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    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.

    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”.

    Reviving An Old Polaroid 1000 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!

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

    Analog By Nature

    It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
