My Early Christmas Wish List

Christmas season starts very early here in the Philippines. So, I’m compiling my early Lomo Christmas Wishlist starting this September!

The “-ber” months have long started and here in the Philippines, and people have always associated these months with the advent of Christmas. Radio stations would play Christmas jingles and the Christmas countdowns have commenced. I’d like to take part in this by compiling an early Lomographic Christmas wish list!

First up are new cameras! I’ve had my eye for quite a while on the following Lomo cameras – namely a Lomo LC-Wide and a La Sardina Belle Star Edition.

I picked the LC-Wide for its ultra wide lens and multi-format capabilities. And it’s compact enough to fit in my purse without taking up too much space.

Among all the La Sardina editions, the Belle Star has caught my attention (and still does!) I just love how the way it looks with the oxidized metal finish paired with a matching Fritz the Blitz flash.

Second on my list are films. Most of the films that I’ve shot with are mostly color negatives and a few slide films that are available locally. I’d like to try out the Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100 35mm. I’ve seen some photos taken with this film and it’s oh-so-nice to look at!

Also, a bunch of assorted 120 films for my medium format cameras would be nice too since 120 films here are quite expensive.

Last on my wish list would be winning a rumble here in Lomography! I haven’t had the chance to win any awards yet but I’m hoping I will in the near future!

Thanks for reading!

    Vicuna's Travel Stories | Burkina Faso: The Land of Upright People

    When someone asks me why I love Burkina Faso so much and what's so special about it, I answer without any hesitation: the people. There's something in this country that connects the people together very strongly. Here, foreign visitors are warmly welcomed. And honestly, I think that the portraits I'm most proud of and that I really love are those shot in Burkina Faso. "Why," you ask?

    Vicuna's Travel Stories | Sunrise in the Desert

    Burkina Faso is a country that has three different climatic areas. It's mostly a land of the Sahel, very dry but with some vegetation and a short rainy season. The very south of the country is already in the tropical zone but the north still belongs to the Sahara desert. I had the opportunity to visit this area and witness a magical moment: a sunrise in the desert.

    Five Days, Four Kinds of Film and Three Cameras on the French Riviera

    It had been five years since my last visit to the Côte d'Azur in France. During this period, I took to film photography again. And so for my return, I was looking forward to capturing, with my handy film cameras, some of that special light and blue sea that had drawn so many artists to the Riviera.
