Analogue Lifestyle - Accessories Anonymous (Pencil & Tape)

These are two very useful accessories that are now always in my bag whenever I go out on a photo trip.

I never leave home without either a pencil (or pen) and gaffer tape. They have always been a part of my camera kit when going out to take pictures. But recently I was going on an extended trip (2 weeks) and I found that I needed to lighten my load. I didn’t want to carry a roll of tape, so I had to find a way to bring my tape without adding weight.

My solution was to cut 4 or 5 pieces of tape off of the roll and wrap them around a pencil that is always in my bag. Perfect solution. I would have my pencil, but would also have my tape in case I needed to re-tape my Holga or anything else on my trip.

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    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.
