I don't know about you guys, but I can't go out shooting alone without some music to keep me company. Here's what I've been listening to, paired with a photo that reminds me of that song.
Oftentimes, I find myself out shooting alone, because sometimes the mood strikes me and no one else is free, or I just want to be in the right state of mind. Regardless, I never go out alone without music, so I thought I’d share what I think is a good representation of my summer shooting playlist, along with a picture that I associate with each song.

If you’d like to listen, I’ve made an online version of my playlist.
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.
... but of course, living deer! I don't know what it is that excites me so much about deer. Close to where I live is a small deer enclosure. I feel so sorry for the little guys, but I love to visit them and feed them apples and walnuts.

I don't care if this film has been reviewed a zillion times, that it has already been discontinued, or that there might be a Japanese version of it. The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!
I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.
Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
The spying globes on Teufelsberg are the not-so-secret insider tip for Berlin’s urban ruins and interesting freak show architecture.
