I finally bought a copy of Lula Magazine(Issue 11) at the local bookstore and what a delight it was to find Mr. Pink inside and lots of beautiful film photography.
Lula Magazine is a biennial fashion magazine from UK which is for the girly-girl who doesn’t stick to trends, loves frilly clothes, puts bows and flowers in her hair, wouldn’t mind pink- rimmed eyeglasses, likes vintage shoes and a film camera. And of course she’d love a Diana F+ Mr. Pink!
I was delighted to see the Diana F+ Mr.Pink on page 109 of Lula Mag’s Issue 11. The photoshoot is titled “Wild World” and on the last photo, the model is rightly accessorized with the Diana F+ Mr.Pink. I say rightly because the photo would be lacking something if she didn’t have the camera dangling from her left hand. Kudos for the stylist in thinking about this. A beautiful camera which can also be a great accessory. I just hope the stylist and the model took a few or even a roll of photos with it.
Aside from this, Lula’s pages were filled with beautiful photos and features. This issue is somewhat special because it is guest edited by Laura and Kate Mulleavy of fashion house, Rodarte. They’re good friends with photographer Autumn De Wilde who photographed a few features on Rodarte for this current issue of Lula. Autumn De Wilde shoots only with film cameras. She shoots portraits and well known for her photography for musicians such as Beck, Death Cab for Cutie and The White Stripes. She photographed The White Stripes’ album Under The Northern Lights and also photographed Jack White’s other band The Raconteurs. Anyway, maybe we can talk more about her work on a future “Analogue Lifestyle” issue. Hint hint!
As for the Lula Mag Issue 11, here are two photos she took of Kirsten Dunst in a Rodarte white dress. Beautiful…..I’d like to frame both of them….
In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.
At this day and age, it's always a delight to know that analogue photography is still very much alive and well. In London, Labyrinth Photographic Printing celebrates this art by holding an annual exhibition of film photographs by various photographers.
My good friend Joan, with my passion for analogue photography in mind, gave me a great aluminum roll holder. She found it at the Encants Market, the largest flea market in Barcelona, and I discovered that it was carrying another gift inside.

If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
After years of being abandoned, the statues at the Villa Olmo are finally being restored by a group of volunteers from a local Fine Arts academy. With my lovely Zorki 6 rangefinder, I documented one phase of this praiseworthy work. Take a look!
It's probably normal for a lot of people to travel on their own once in a while, but for me, it was a huge undertaking that kind of required me to prepare myself. So, when I finally took the plunge, it felt like I was doing something wild -- at least, travel-wise!

At the beginning of November, I went to Madrid for the first time. I wanted to bring back home unique memories and photographs of what I was going to discover in the Spanish capital, so I brought the Petzval Lens with me to capture this trip within a beautiful swirling bokeh.
During the last two weeks of February I was finally able to shoot with the LC-A+. It was only then that I was able to find out for myself just why many lomographers love to shoot with this awesome little camera.
I'm Nick Page, a graphic designer based in the UK. After 20 years of working in advertising, I returned to film photography five years ago and found that the analogue life was just what I needed to get away from the "pixel perfect" images I deal with every day in my job.
The Horizon Kompakt is a miracle in the shape of a 35mm camera. Just watching its multi-coated swing lens as it sweeps 120° degrees is a wonder to behold. With "Day" and "Night" shooting settings and battery free operation, it's also incredibly simple to use. Capture picture-perfect panoramas and get prints approximately the size of two standard frames. With the Kompakt, you'll see the world from a whole new perspective.
I wasn't very impressed when the LomoChrome Purple was first released. At least not so much that I wanted to get my hands on it at once. Of course I liked some pictures but eventually, I wanted to test it and what can I say? It was love at first sight!
For the second year running, on April 12th 2014 we are celebrating Film Photography Day! And as avid analogue lovers, we have prepared a bunch of great events, top prizes and a lot of surprises! Read more about what will happen on Film Photography Day 2014 near you after the jump!
I’m lucky enough and old enough to have grown up in an era where film was the only form of photography available. I’ve always had a passion for film but it was a certain series of images that inspired me and changed my idea of photography forever. Find out what that was after the jump.
