2012 was a great year for me as a Lomographer, but I want to make 2013 even better! Here are a few resolutions for 2013 that can make the year better than the previous one AND help me become a better Lomographer.
This year, I’m aspiring to be a better Lomographer, but nothing can ever get done simply by dreaming about it. That’s why I’ve comprised this list of resolutions for the New Year to start the year in the right direction. Who knows? Maybe my list will inspire you to resolve to be a better Lomographer, too!
Take at least one photo a day
I think this is probably the most important resolution, as it can help me not only become a better Lomographer, but also help me develop skills to become a better photographer. Taking at least one photo a day will also aid me in understanding my cameras and film. On top of all that, it will make a great way to document the year as it goes by. It’s important to remember that Lomography isn’t an interference in my life, but a part of it!
Contribute more to the Lomography Magazine
Last year, I wrote ONE article. Just one. I think that’s pretty sad. So, this year, I am resolving to contribute more to the Lomography Magazine by submitting more articles. Reviews, Tipsters, Locations, and Analogue Lifestyle pieces like this one!
Participate in Film Swaps and LomoWalks
I’ve always wanted to do a film swap or a LomoWalk with my fellow Lomographers, but I never did anything about it in 2012. This year, that’s going to change! It’ll be a great opportunity to meet new people who have similar interests as I do. They might even teach me a thing or two about photography.
This year, I’m resolving to experiment more. With different film, light conditions, subjects, cameras, anything and everything. In doing this, it will surely flex my photographic muscles, add some variety to my photos, and I will definitely learn a lot in the process.
“Forget about safety margins and unnecessary shyness!”
Golden Rule #4 was my inspiration for this and there’s a good reason for it, too. There is no excuse to hide behind a camera. So this year, I resolve to shoot from the hip, get up close and personal to strangers, and even break a few rules.
And last but not least…
Spend more time with family and friends and make them part of my analogue life!
Family and friends are a huge part of my life, and so is Lomography! That is why it’s important to involve them in my analogue life.
With all of these resolutions, I’m hoping to not only become a better Lomographer but also to make my analogue life more awesome! So what about you? What promises do you intend to keep to make your analogue life more awesome? Share them in the comments section!
