UK Cityslicker Marianne: My Aspirations for 2013

2013-01-02

Last month, Lomography asked the Cityslickers what their goals are for the year 2013. Read how Lomography is helping Marianne achieve her aspirations for 2013!

Last month’s Cityslicker task was an appropriate one for me, because my aspirations for 2013 are entwined with being a Lomography UK Cityslicker! Early last year, Lomography got me a pass to go to Bestival and photograph from the press photo pit.

It was one of the most excitingly crazy and novel experiences of my life, as my day job is only being a psychology student! The headliners included Stevie Wonder and Florence + The Machine, and it was a real once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be able to photograph such big acts. Whilst I was there, I also took along my digital cameras and to make the most of the opportunity, I took some digital photographs as well. Then, thanks to one of my digital shots from Bestival, I won a competition to photograph P!nk at the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball.

Because of these experiences, I’m now considering a career in event photography, (once I’ve finished my studies of course!) and I wouldn’t have had those opportunities if I wasn’t a Lomography UK Cityslicker! Next year, I’m hoping to go to more music events with Lomography’s help, to both provide exciting reviews for Lomography and build up my portfolio.

Furthermore, thanks to one of my friends mentioning that I’m a Lomography Cityslicker, another friend asked me if I photographed weddings. I finally had the confidence to give it a shot, and since then, I haven’t looked back! I’ve done a few weddings this year and I’m hoping to continue shooting weddings in 2013. My dream would be to shoot a wedding entirely on Lomography cameras, and I’d love to offer a bespoke Lomo wedding photography service. Imagine the bouquet toss on the Actionsampler, or the couple portraits on the Bel-Air!

So, my aspiration for 2013 is to continue working towards becoming a photographer, and it all started with Lomography, so thank you Lomography! (To follow UK Cityslicker Marianne’s aspirations, see her work here).

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

    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!
