First impressions count, so never make the mistake of messing up your first date. It’s easy to be your charming and accommodating self, but that alone won’t impress the man or woman of your dreams. Exert a little effort, and take time to prepare. Here are some first date ideas, which will hopefully lead to the hot and steamy affair you’ve always wanted.
1. Go to the beach.
What could be more scenic and more relaxing than going to the beach on a nice sunny day? It’s a wonderful opportunity to capture deep blue and the clear blue sky on film. It’s also a good time to get a tan that would look great on summer photos. Towards the end of the day, you and your analogue camera can wait for sunset and take a picture of it together.
2. Visit an aquarium or oceanarium.
Going to an aquarium might seem outright boring compared to a day at the beach. But if you love marine life anyway and yet you’re not in the mood to lather on sunblock, then the aquarium is an intimate indoor alternative. It also gives you and your analogue date the opportunity to experiment on how to take flash-free shots of shadows and aquatic creatures.
3. Go hiking.
If you’re the outdoorsy type who loves to see mountain ranges and appreciates exotic plant life, you will definitely enjoy a day of hiking. You can bring a tent if there’s a site for you to set it up, breathe in the fresh air and take in all that scenery. The atmosphere would be conducive to exploration and for getting to know your analogue date. Your Lomography camera would definitely love to go on a nature trip with you and bring home some analogue memories.
4. Watch an intimate music gig.
They say that conversation is very crucial to having a successful date but music, on the other hand, is instrumental to setting the right mood for the rest of the evening. Check out the gig schedules in your locality and reserve tickets or passes if possible. Make sure you get good seats with a good view of the performing artist, so you and your analogue date can take impressive photos of the band on stage.
5. Play tourist.
You don’t have to drive hours to the beach, mountains, or a different state for a taste of scenery and culture. Try seeing your hometown from a tourist’s perspective. You’ll discover that there are places worth visiting and events worth attending that would make great centerpieces for your photographs. Take your analogue date on an excursion of sorts to appreciate and capture the wonders around your locality.
Let’s hope one of these suggestions work perfectly and help you get that second date, a third…and eventually, a meaningful and endearing analogue love affair.
