My First Born Son: Iffat Altamis

2012-01-03 20

I have an ongoing project dedicated for my very first born child.Special moment that every married couple waited. It feels good to be a daddy!

Inspired by Jamie Livingston (October 25, 1956 – October 25, 1997), I decided to do my very own mini-project based on Jamie’s “Polaroid A Day.” Instead, I’m using Fuji Instax Mini because Polaroid is quite expensive compared to Fuji Instax. I called my project “Instax A Day: Iffat Altamis” and started doing it right after he was born on 17th Sept 2011!

This ongoing project will go on until he reaches his 1st birthday. I’m hoping that I can finish it without fail,at least i got something special for him capturing the moment he was born until he turns a year old. For the time being, I just need to make sure that I don’t miss a single day to take his photo and watch him grow from time to time.

It feels like dream having your very own child and starting your own family. One thing is for sure, I will make sure that he will follow my footsteps to be a analogue camera lover and share my passion about photography, specifically Lomography! LOMO ON!

For spur-of-the-moment pictures that can’t wait to be seen and loved, our Instant Cameras will do its job in giving you your shots in no time! Check out our selection here.

    The most exciting thing about this project is going to be one day when he's much older looking at the photos and it hits him that he was once actually experiencing the moment of those photographs.

    That's brilliant! I did the same for my baby but digitally - I was convinced it would be too much hard work going the analogue route lol. This was the result…

    A Salute to the Masters: Ice Skating (A Tribute to Monte Fresco)

    This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.

    Photographic Pairs

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
