Lomography will be my forever love and I have the lifetime mark to prove it! I have revived my analogue love on my recent backpacking trip to Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia. Just goes to show that I will never turn my back on something that I really love.
In case you are wondering if the photo I have attached is a real tattoo… YES IT IS! I recently had an amazing backpacking adventure during the concluded Songkran Festival in Thailand. It was a wet and wild experience for me; it was actually my first time to attend this Thai New Year celebration. It was already my fourth visit to Thailand and it has always kept me interested and surprised in so many ways.
On my trip, I decided to take Bangkok as my first stop before heading to the provinces in the south and then to Singapore and Malaysia. Since Songkran has been known to be a crazy and exciting celebration, I had the guts to take my Lomo LC-A+ on a risky adventure. Loading it with Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 ISO Film which I purchased at the Lomography Embassy Bangkok in Siam Discovery, I had the chance to shoot away some memorable moments in this busy city turned water world metropolis.
I have so much captured in my 3-country escape and it’s in the process of uploading so keep yourself posted on my albums at my LomoHome. Enjoy a glimpse of some of the scenes at the recently concluded Songkran Festival 2013.
Beijing is a ready-made template for panoramic shots. Tourist baits like The Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace stretch for miles. Those who walk from end to end will have more to say. For instance, that the ground goes on to infinity. Or that they have never been so tired and amazed all at once.
Lomography celebrates just about anything by means of pictures. And so while we have baked cakes for Grandparents Day, we also scoured archives for heartwarming photos of grandpas, grandmas and their brood. We just want to prove that hanging out with the folks never goes out of style.
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!

Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.
What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.
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.
Maintaining an active LomoHome builds one's reputation as a passionate Lomographer. Standout photos compel the viewer to follow an uploader's work, but so does unceasing dedication. Congratulations to these veteran Lomographers and thank you for the visual inspiration!
