I love to shoot and I love to run. So, i thought of shooting while running.

Aside from Lomography, another hobby of mine is running. For the past two years, I have been participating in a lot of road races. As of now, I have quite a number of 10-kilometer and 21-kilometer events under my belt. Running has given me a lot; improved health, fun time with friends, self-discipline, and with a recent realization, another opportunity to shoot.

It is not exactly new for me to bring a camera on race day. However, I get to shoot only after the race is over. But more than this, I wanted to document the run itself. So I thought of bringing a camera, as I was running.

An important aspect of running, of course, is movement. With that, it was a no brainer that I chose the Lomography Supersampler as my weapon of choice. It’s lightweight, easy to carry, and has multiple lenses, ideal for taking moving objects, such as runners. I popped in a Fuji Provia 100F, I was ready to go!

Races usually start as early as 6:00 in the morning, so I knew I had to wait for sunrise, otherwise, my Supersampler will not capture anything. And so, as soon as the sun was up, I started shooting at us and the scenery by our route. The results are a blast!

So, the next time you engage in one of your other hobbies, make them more enjoyable by capturing those moment, analogue style!
