I just can't separate my analogue passion with my daily life. Actually, my daily life is so full of analogue activities right now. Read about my daily life after the jump!
I started doing Lomography 1.5 years ago, and my life has changed completely ever since. I remember about 2 years ago, my daily activities just involved going to campus, playing basketball until it got dark, turning my laptop on to play a football game called Football Manager, or sometimes watch the TV series such as “How I Met Your Mother.” I had no idea that a camera can change my daily life.
After I bought my first Lomographic camera, the La Sardina, I was so excited that I must bring it everywhere I go. I got addicted to Lomography. Now, my daily activities basically involve:
1. Bringing 3 cameras everywhere I go is a must.
May be some of you are surprised, and may be some of you think it is not a big deal. Well for me, it’s a must. First, I must bring my LC-Wide. It is so versatile in every situation that I’m about to face. Sometimes i bring my LC-Wide just to do the film swap.
The second type of the camera is my SLR, which is Canon TX. I got this camera from my dad, or may be from my grandfather, I don’t really remember. An SLR makes you able to shoot a high quality pictures that in case you may need before you know it. Also, I’m still learning to know this camera well. To bring my Canon TX is a must.
The third camera type is the plastic cameras! Plastic cameras are the reason why I fell in love the first time with Lomography. I usually love to bring my Diana Baby 110 because it’s so light, but the Sprocket Rocket has taken my attention recently.
2. Always make time to do a LomoWalk once in a week.
My goal is to live my passion. If i’m not doing a LomoWalk just once in a week, my days feel like they’re full of emptiness. I usually go for a LomoWalk every Tuesday or Friday morning with my girl or sometimes with adi_totp . But I also enjoy doing solo photowalks in my city.
3. Scanning films by myself.
I love scanning films! When I have spare time, I go to my friend’s photography shop/lab and help him scan some orders. I usually scan my own photos in his shop as well. Thank you ping-junior!
So, that’s it, my analogue days! I really want to hear your analogue days as well! I think it’s interesting to know how every person lives their passion. Looking forward to reading those! Have a nice day!
PS : I still watch “How I Met Your Mother”!
