My 2012 Bucket List: A Guide for This Year's Analogue Adventures

With all my analogue achievements for 2011, it would be foolish not to keep going. So, I came up with a brief overview of things that I want to accomplish for the year 2012.

With my analogue achievements from the previous year, it would be foolish to stop now. It’s either I match my productivity last year, or to top it. As the year begins, it’s a good idea to set my goals, so as to guide me in my analogue adventures for 2012.

Fuji Natura Classica

I am almost satisfied with my camera collection. It’s not that big, but I do have a few plastic cameras, auto-exposure cameras, medium format, 135 square and half frame, a panoramic camera, an SLR, and 2 multilens cameras. I’ve always wanted to have a TLR, particularly the Yashica Mat, but it’s too expensive to be realistically in my bucket list. That leaves me with another camera in mind: a modern 135 autoexposure camera, the Fuji Natura Classica. It probably cost as much as a second hand Yashica Mat, but I can cut the cost with piggies, of course.

Film Experimentation

I also want to try some of the lab rat tipsters, if not think of my own. I have always been so lazy or fearful over boiling my film in some chemical concoctions and drying it again, with no certainty if it will yield to something desirable, or anything at all. I want to be more daring this time.

Project Kahel 365

This is not exactly an analogue project but, a photo project nonetheless. I hope to be able to finish this project that I started last November 11, 2011. That is, to photograph my first-born child every day until my son reaches his first birthday. As I write this article, I am on day 60.

37 Articles, or More

By the end of this year, I was amazed by how many articles I was able to write last year, not to mention how much I benefited from all my efforts. This year, I feel the pressure of doing as much, or even more. This is the third article I am writing for this month; so it seems I am on the right track.

A Lomographic Identity

One my frustrations in my craft is that my shots are so loose in terms of concept. As a lomographer I am yet to have an identity like that of lakandula or hodachrome. I want to reach the point where people will know that an image is mine by the mere sight of it. Hopeful, I find my lomographic self this year.

My bucket list seems to be very full; almost overwhelming. By the end of this year, I will report to you if I was successful in accomplishing them. Best of luck to all of us!

Let’s make 2012 a year full of creativity and analogue love! If you liked this article, go ahead and check the rest of analogue bucket lists for 2012 submitted by the community! Of course, you can also submit your own inspiring analogue bucket list for 2012 and get more piggies!
