The First Roll of Film

2012-04-20 3

You just entered the world of Lomography. You finally bought a Lomography camera or you could not resist temptation and bought an analogue camera on But after years of digital photography: “What to do with your first roll of film?!” Here are some tips.

1. All alone in the world of Lomography and nobody to help you? Ask Google, on how to fit the roll of film in your camera!

2. Don’t be afraid to fill the roll with randomness and without lots of thinking.

3. Try all settings on your camera. You have to get used to all new things, even Lomography, so just make this your “test-roll.”

4. And then the Lomo-rules apply, in particular: “Don’t worry about any rules.”

And I am sure that after the first roll, lots will follow. Maybe some more “test-rolls” or maybe some piggie-winning pictures.

All pictures are from my first roll in my first “Lomo-camera” (Fisheye)

Ohhhh…. one last thing, please don’t forget to rotate your pictures, before uploading them to your LomoHome, otherwise they will look like mine! (see above)
