Oh what a year it's been! Come share my love for our non-digital friends.
This is how it all started for me, those two photos above. They triggered it. I fell in love at first sight. I needed a Diana Mini. I just had to have one. I knew I couldn’t live without it.
My first photo? This one:
Turned out to be a multiple exposure! Had no idea how or why but I loved it.
My first ‘great’ photo? This one:
Again, it was a surprise I had discovered microclicks and miniramas as well as cross-processing all at one go. I had no idea about either – but it happened and it was great.
My first let down happened when a month after I got my Diana Mini I took it to Hungary with me. Most of the photos turned out terribly overexposed and only managed to salvage a few. It made me terribly unhappy.
But I certainly didn’t let it get to me, no, and not only did I keep shooting left, right and center, I also packed my Diana Mini and took it to France with me! That’s where I bought the SuperSampler and took my first shots with it:
I subsequently packed both Diana Mini and SuperSampler and headed to Frankfurt and Venice and here are some results:
Even at home, in Malta, I couldn’t stop shooting and experimenting I took my cameras everywhere just as it says in the golden rules.
Then, some time later I got myself the Sprocket Rocket and it changed everything!
Of course at the beginning I had no Digitiliza so I couldn’t scan the sprockets but I eventually did get one and here are some results:
In the meantime, I also made some great friends abroad by swapping films and shooting doubles. We had some good results and some not so good ones!
When I got my hands on the Fisheye2, I discovered the joy of trying to produce a series of shots and I loved and still love, every minute of it.
Just this week, perhaps also to celebrate my anniversary, I got the Spinner 360 and here are my first shots:
Yes, that’s 5 new cameras in 12 months! I know, it is verging on addiction at this point. But who cares? I think I’ve had some very special moments with my lomo-companions along the way, and I shan’t cease to love them!
I don’t want to stop. Lomography has become a part of my life, a passion and a friend. Don’t know what I would do without it.
All photos (except the first two) belong to my lomohome
