My Lomo Story : Round & Wide Pictures

10

"Lomography? Huh. What's that?"

“Lomography? Huh. What’s that?”

The conversation doesn’t just ended there. The curiosity of me, wanted to know more, ask and keep on asking.

He told me, Lomography consists of a group of toy analogue camera.

“Huh, Toy camera? COOL!”

Then he introduce me, The Fisheye2. The moment I saw it, I knew I fall in love with it. It’s so cute and so plastic to me. The round view finder letting me to imagine how would it be the outcome of the pictures taken. Without hesitating, I’m grabbing this fisheye 2, and went for a vacation. That was, November 2006.

I shoot anything I felt I wanted to shoot. There, I spend up my first 2 rolls. Immediately after that when I got home from the vacation, I send to developing. The heart-pumping and the nervous feeling of the outcome of those pictures are really excited. Moreover, it’s been such a long while since the last shoot using the analogue cameras. I’ve forgotten how does it feel like shooting with films in a camera.

The results?

I smiled and smiled endlessly. The outcome of the pictures made me happy. I love the WIDE pictures! These round and wide pictures are totally awesome. The happiness these analogue pictures can bring me, is really indescribeable. Then, my love towards lomography grew stronger and stronger.

Fisheye2 would be my best partner ever. I’m still madly in love with the round wide pictures after I’ve testing and playing around with other analogue cameras. Those self-shot and big head pictures together with my friends and family, bring me a lot of memories. It’s lovely to be able to take pictures with someone really important in my life. It does record down the moments of joy gathering together.

Round-Wide-Pictures, that’s my love in Lomo.

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."

My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today.

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

    The LomoChrome Purple and How Its Colors Convinced Me in the End

    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!

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
