For this month’s CitySlicker task I was asked to write my analogue wishlist for the coming year. This has been an easy task as I always have some products in my wishlist in the Lomography Online store. Here I talk about a few things I hope to pick up in 2013.
This is currently the product at the absolute top of my lust list. I loved the Diana Baby when it came out but I decided to hold off and see if a new version of it came out. When I saw the gold one I knew I would just have to own it soon. It looks so cute, a bit like jewellery and a bit like a camera, and I love 110 film at the moment after getting a Fisheye and a Pentax Auto 110. Here are some shots from the community that I am just in love with.
Also, one of the items I have been dying to get hold of for a little while is the LC-A+ Splitzer. My other half does have one and I am allowed to borrow it on occasion, but I would like it if we could have one each as he teaches me things and then we could go out and splitz together. I have had a go at using it on my own but this happened:
…when I was hoping to achieve some amazing shots like I have seen here in the community:
I used one roll of this, which I had got as a gift by accident last weekend. I quite like the colours of the film, which you can see below:
I do wish however that I had used this in a camera with a light meter for slightly better colour results as some of the shots I have seen taken on it are brilliant. Plus I must use it in my Sprocket Rocket for the full effect.
I have had one of these on my wishlist for a long time now and I hope that with my piggie collecting skills, 2013 can be the year I actually get to own one. I used one in London in August and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it (although I just remembered I need to get someone to scan my negatives for me!). It is an expensive camera, but the build quality is really really good and the photos it can produce are just phenomenal here in the community.
I cannot wait to read these books. I saw an advert for them in an article in UK newspaper the Metro and I have been dying to read them ever since. I had a glimpse of them at the Lomo Store in Manchester and they look excellent – 20 years of Lomography in 2 hardback books is just too good to miss!
