My Analog Wishlist 2012

Like they say, it is free to dream, so I dreamed all I want. Who knows, maybe Santa also reads the Lomography Magazine!

Dear Santa,

I may not be all that perfectly righteous this year, but I tried my best being all nice. It’s still up to you if you will give me an analog gift but if you will It would be a bit nicer if you spare me an item from my wishlist, don’t worry I only have 5 items listed on my wishlist. Haha!

1. I may be a bit demanding for this is an expensive goody, but I will say it anyway. This Christmas, the first on my list would be the Lomograhy Horizon Perfekt. Nothing will make me happier than having this perfekt camera! No need for further explanations these sample photos are simply breath taking, and if you ever gave me one I promise to take a portrait of you with the winter wonderland on your background!

2. The second on my list is the Lomo LC-Wide. Another premium LSI camera — I know, I know, I’m being too demanding. But just take a look at the photos taken by it — the widest of wides, the sharpest of sharps, it’s is a genius invention by lomography! If you ever got me this camera I will promise to take a wide portrait of you with your reindeers even with your elves. I’m sure that with a 17mm minigon lens, you’ll all fit just right in the frame!

3. For my third item, I want a rangefinder camera! Rangefinders are always the sexiest, don’t worry I won’t ask for a Leica. A Canonet QL 17, or a Yashica Lynx 14 would do! Canonet’s 1.7 lens is a wonder! What more of the 1.4 lens of the Yashica Lynx, how amazing is that? I can surely take your portrait like a pro!

4. For my fourth wishlist item, I just want a film developing kit, so I can go full analog! A changing bag, a developing tank, a thermometer, and the chemicals needed are all you need to buy. Nothing is more satisfying than developing your own film, right?

5. And if ever the first four is too much for you, you can just spare me a roll of Kodak Aerochrome Infrared film. I will promise you that I will make the best out of it! Maybe I can take a single photo of you with it—who doesn’t want to be photographed with a very special film, right? Just look at the sample photos and be blown away!

Like I said, any of the 5 will be the best Christmas gift ever. But I assure you, any analog gift would do just fine. If ever you came by our house this Christmas, I will be hanging my socks by the window. Merry Christmas and thank you in advance!

Regards,
Teo

P.S. I almost forgot, if you want me to take your portrait, it will be my pleasure!

    5 Snapshot Moments on the Road

    A road trip is a celebration of little freedoms. It’s a chance to break out of a rut and to be a little unruly. All the mischief may be off limits to the camera, so the things we do photograph need to serve our memory well: They must convey the relief, fun and color of our secret sprees.

    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!

    Black and White Photography: The Forms of the World

    Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
