    LC-Wide After Effect: OSSD (Obsessive-Selfshot-Disorder)

    Shooting with LC-A+ for more than 4 years, I've always been behind the viewfinder and get my source of inspiration by looking forward. Shooting friends, landscape, the mundane, abstract, etc. Last year I get myself a LC-Wide. From then on I noticed there is a new face keep appearing in my photo collection. Eh? That's me!

    Developing My First Contact Prints

    What is most touching is watching your pictures appear slowly, fading in like magic after long hours of staying inside a dark room. The feeling of getting your first photo developed is indescribable.

    Self-Portraits as a State of Mind

    In order to snap a natural-looking, candid shot, it helps if your subject is either: (a) unaware you are taking a picture, or (b) very comfortable with you as a photographer. Well, both of these criteria are non-existent when you're taking self-portraits and realize you feel: self-conscious, awkward, and a little too narcissistic or self-indulgent taking pictures of yourself. Here are my quick tips to avoiding stiff, overly-posed pictures.

    Self-FilmSwap with Lomography Supersampler

    If you're a user of film cameras, I am sure that you have already experienced multiple exposures, either by using the MX button on the cameras or just taking multiple shots. Otherwise, take one roll of finished film and put it in to the diffrent camera, or swap with other Lomographers. This tipster is one of the way to do it yourself, simple way to try.

    When Subject Meets Photographer: Self-Portraits!

    Sometimes when there's nothing interesting going on and nobody else is around, it's hard to find a subject to shoot. But don’t be put down; there is always you! A self-portrait can be made anytime and anywhere. You don’t need to be super vain--no, I think everybody can use some self-portrait time every now and then. What you get is a very interesting collection of “selfies” which is a nice way to look back and capture the most intimate moments of your own life. Nowadays, it’s even easier with everybody carrying smartphones and digital cameras, but nothing beats a good analogue self-portrait.

    Film Development

    I've started developing my own black & white film lately and am still getting the hang of loading it onto the reels correctly. The first few rolls were disastrous but I've gotten better since and have even gotten some cool effects from my mistakes.
