Your Photography Origins User Blog Rumble ended over 3 years ago

Just all like the super-heroes and super-villains, we all have origins! What's your photographic origin? Don't worry it doesn't have to involve being a mutant or getting bitten by a radioactive spider!

Photo by domyblue

As impossible as it may sound, there was a point in time in our past that we didn’t care about Lomography and even photography itself (sacrilege!). It could be just a few months back when you were busy doing other stuff, or more than a decade ago when you were just a wee lad. Since it’s World Photography Day, we want to hear about what exactly turned your gaze to photography and changed your life forever. Was it an elective in college, a partner that was into cameras, or an article in a magazine?

Write your Photography Origin in the User Blog and post the link here in the comments. The 5 best stories will get 5 Piggies each and an award to boot!

    I started because of a girl. I sort of fell in love with her, but it wasn't sexual. She was a photographer I was her model. She thought I was beautiful. I think she's a goddess. I've not seen her in sometime. I've always wanted to do photography. So, imagine my shock when I discover there's a who analogue world and I can still be beautiful and imperfect. I traded my brother the secret of my mum's rice balls for his Holga. I started because I miss her and I hope some she sees my work (as soon as i post some!)
