My Analogue Bucket List for 2012: New Year, New Goals

2012-02-04 3

New year, new goals! Well, most of the things on my analogue bucket list for 2012 have been on there for a while – all the more reason to get them done this year!

I don’t have a lot of things I want to achieve in 2012, mostly I just want to keep shooting as much as I have been in 2011 and, most importantly, keep having fun doing it. However there are a few things I have been wanting to do (or buy) for a long time now!

1. Develop my own film.
I have developed my own film in the past, but currently, I don’t have the necessary equipment at home. One of my goals for 2012 is to buy a development tank and get into developing film using Cafenol. Developing your own film is fun, cheap, and faster than most labs so it’s something I definitely want to explore further!

2. Buy a Lomo LC-Wide.
I wanted one of those ever since it was introduced last year! However, it’s a little too pricey for a poor student like myself. So I’m saving money and piggies to buy it some time this year.

3. Go to Photokina.
I’ve been to Photokina twice so far and absolutely loved it!!! It’s the world’s largest photography trade show with literally tons of interesting booths to discover, workshops to attend to, pros to talk to… In short, it’s a photographer’s paradise! Of course, the Lomography booth is always a highlight and I’d really like to have one of my photos on this year’s Photokina lomo wall! Also, I’m looking forward to meeting other lomographers there as well!

4. Make more multiple exposures.
Sometimes I find it hard to completely let loose and shoot double exposures. I find that I’m still thinking to much and and in my head I always go like, “this is never going to come out the way I want it to” so I don’t even try and stick to one photo a frame. I’d really like to break that habit though because on this site I have seen so many multiple exposures that have simply blown my mind. I just need to be braver!

5. Meet more lomographers and shoot doubles across the globe.
One of the things I love most about Lomography is the amazing community. Everyone is so passionate about their hobby, but so nice and helpful at the same time. I would like to meet some more lomographers in person, but also I would like to shoot doubles with lomographers living so far away that it’s not very likely we will ever meet in person. In short, I want to connect to more of you magnificent individual lomographers!

Those are my main goals for 2012 and I am positive they can be met. Do you have similar goals for this year? And who am I going to meet at Photokina? Feel free to leave a comment!

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!

    Trusty Bags for Trusty Cameras

    We spend copious amounts of time stalking camera forums and researching specifications that "hunter" seems a more fitting term than "collector." And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.

    LomoLocations: French Chateaux Revisited

    Chateaux served as houses of powerful lords, often of nobility and royalty. Most French castles reek of relevant history and monarchical drama, which makes them more interesting. And though France has moved on from the monarchy with liberté, égalité, fraternité, they remain strong and solid as tourist attractions. Thankfully, Lomographers have been around France and regularly share images of these amazing castles.
