My (Love) Lomo Story

9

My Lomo story started a long time ago when I saw the Actionsampler in a magazine, but it was only abstract to me at the time. I was not sure that a plastic camera could work well, so I did not decide to buy it right then. Then I searched and learned about all Lomographic cameras to make sure that they were not toys. About two years later, my abstractness became existence.

About two years later, my abstractness became existence.

On August 13, 2006, my boyfriend and I traveled around Rattanakosin Island, Bangkok, and I saw a lovely couple that a girl was taking her boyfriend’s photos with a Fisheye2 camera. I told my boyfriend that I wanted this camera. He said “OK, bought it.” Then we went to a shop to buy it. This was my first camera that I really loved.

December 8, 2006 was my Birthday. I was very surprised that my boyfriend gave me the rubble blue Supersampler camera. I was so happy and nearly cried. I did not believe that he can remember the shop we used to buy the Fisheye2 (it was his first time to visit the shop). He bought it while I was watching some Korean TV series on a holiday. He told me he went to supermarket which was near his home with his mother. So, I had never known that he went to buy Supersampler as the shop was very far from his house. Thanks God for the precious gift and the lovely boyfriend. It was one of the best and surprised Birthdays in my life!

Today, I have five Lomo cameras: the Fisheye 2, Supersampler, Colorsplash Camera, Holga 120CFN and Actionsampler.

    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..."

    Monday Moodboard: 1990s Summertime

    It's been a boiling, scorching, baking hot summer here in the Philippines since March, and believe it or not, I haven't been to the beach yet. I'm going to do something about that, but not without making another playlist for the trip! This time, I decided to make a mix inspired by the summer vacations of my younger days.

    Fresh from the Lab: Silvia Precisa

    Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!

    Finally, My Own Petzval Lens

    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.

    Transient Living: The Craft and the Craftsmen of Denver, Colorado

    The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down. My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today. In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.

    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.

    Olivier Barjolle: In Praise of Film

    About seven or eight years ago, Olivier Barjolle twisted his ankle while skateboarding. To while away time as his injury healed, Barjolle began taking photographs with a simple, plastic Polaroid camera that he got from a flea market. He hasn't stopped since.
