I'm sharing with you my 2012 bucket list. There are so many things that I wish to achieve and I hope this will be the year I can cross most of these off!
I got into Lomography half way through 2011, so as soon as I saw the bucket list articles, I felt this would be the year it would matter the most to make one!
1: Make a Photobook
This year, I plan to collect all of my best shots and make a photobook online of my year. Ever since my Dad made one for his friend’s wedding album I have always wanted to make a book. So, what better of an excuse to collect my favourite pictures and make a photobook!
2: Spin, Spin, Spin!
Ever since i first laid eyes on it i have always wanted to buy a Lomography Spinner 360, and this year I will be saving my piggies and writing more articles so i will be able to get one!
3: Become Lomohome of the Day
I would love to make Lomohome of the Day because… well… who wouldn’t!
4: Develop black and white films at home
I would love to take some black and white pictures with my girlfriend and develop the rolls together. I used to develop rolls of black and white in my bathroom with my dad when I was around 7 years old, and it was great fun. I would love to pass on my knowledge to my girlfriend and develop film with her as I think this would be great fun! Maybe try out the Lomography Earl Grey film while we’re at it too!
5. Cross Process my first roll!
Ever since I got into Lomography, I have only experimented with C41 films. Even my black and white pictures were shot with Ilford XP2, and I feel that cross processing would be the next steps to improve my pictures!

6. Go on more adventures*
Some of my best snaps were taken on some great days out so i feel this will be an excuse to explore more places and take alot more pictures! I also feel this year i am going to visit places i have never been or even heard of before! Dont think, Just Shoot!
7. Spend more time with family and friends
I think this one is the most important as you can never spend enough time with the ones you love. This is why I have left this one until last. As a teenage boy, I spent a lot of my time cooped up in my bedroom, but this year, I will spend more time going out and having fun with my family! I will also take A LOT of pictures while I’m at it!
