My Analogue Bucket List: Analogue Aspirations for 2013

2013-01-03 2

To be a productive member of Lomography, I came up with this list to set my analogue goals straight. Hola 2013, I hope you’ll be great!

I feel blessed that I’ve accomplished 4 out of 7 items from my last year’s bucket list. I hope I can top that with this year’s bucket list.

1. Shoot outside of my usual range of subjects

Due to the possessive nature of my work, I usually don’t get time to shoot around; thus, I’m only able to shoot a range of areas (but I do my best to mix it up a bit so I don’t end up with the same photos). However, I can manage my time to work my way around that. I’ll do my best to shoot new things this year.

2. Be a Part of an Exhibit

Unfortunately, I hadn’t seen any notice for a photo exhibition last year. But this year I’ll be more vigilant; I hope I get to join one this time around.

3. Win a Major Competition

I haven’t been much vigilant in this area of the website. I want to change that this year; Since I’ve accumulated quite a lot of photos, I feel that I’m more flexible now in terms of photo submissions.
I hope I can cross this out this year!

4. Focus on using cameras more than buying cameras

Buying isn’t all that bad but at the rate that I’m going, I’d like to pause for a while and focus on/master some, if not all, of my cameras. I’m currently happy with my arsenal, and I think it’s time to train myself in using them.

5. Do More Film Swaps (Doubles) with other Lomographers from all the corners of the World

I’ve successfully done doubles with @mishika, @boobert, @walasiteodito, and @hans12. I have a couple of doubles rolls to be shot and developed and I want to do more. It’s not an easy task but it’s really fun to do and it’s rewarding when it turns out well. If you haven’t tried it, I recommend that you do! Send me a PM if want to do doubles with me.

6. Experiment more with all the analogue possiblities

I’ve done a few experiments last year, and I’m definitely hungry for more; I just need to get my creative juices flowing and let my imagination do the rest. The Lomography community contributed a big part to my small experiments here and there last year; I hope to do more and to do something that’ll leave a mark in this community.

That’s all for now. How about you? How’s that list going?

    The Infallible Electric Eye

    By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.

    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.

    Passionate About Film: Since Alive

    Since Alive was founded in 2010 with one mission: to uphold film photography despite the steadily increasing popularity of digital imaging. It aims to provide guidance and information to analogue photography enthusiasts through its website, which has become a platform for showcasing the creativity and techniques of its followers. Since live has also ventured into developing products to bolster the practice of analogue photography and its Bento Film Case has proven to be very useful. Lomography talks to Since Alive’s Wind Hui and designer Stephanie Ho, co-collaborators for Since Alive’s Bento Film Case.
