He started to click the analogue shutter in the year of 2007 and he never looked back. His love towards analogue photography will never stop and, now, he is one of the most noticeable faces among the true Lomographers in Malaysia.
The birth of another raising star in Malaysian Lomography scene started in the year 2007. He was looking something fresh and unique to edit pictures with (he was a Photoshop addict before), and stumbled upon a video tutorial on Youtube about the “lomo effects.” Curiosity dragged his hands to the search engine box and started to find ‘what the f*ck are lomo cameras’ but he erased it from his mind as he thought that Lomographic cameras were expensive and perhaps there’s no Lomographic community in Malaysia at that time. At the end of the year, he came across the effects community (formerly known as Lomokids) but his heart is still in love with the digital world.
Questions raised by his best friend @shahirmomo one day reignite the flame – @shahirmomo asked him to join film photography community called lomography. He bought a Holga CFN 120 from @hanifmaidin and after he developed the entire roll, he became addicted to lomography, eager to see more and more results. Then, he etched the word lomography on his heart and stepped on the road that rarely taken — the analogue way. As a beginner, he learned slowly until he became one of the respected lomographers.
The bulletofmine name came actually when he’s looking for a more matured and exploding name. From the word B.O.M — the nickname bulletofmine was produced as he was largely influenced by Greenday songs (from the album American Idiots that mainly depicts wars). Bulletofmine represented the ideas that he poured onto his photos, which came from his knowledege, experience, and most importantly his soul. His biggest hope is that Malaysia’s Lomography scene will not end, instead of just a trendy culture that one day will be washed away and erased from everyone’s mind. He is also hopeful that our country’s community will surpass the success of the Lomography big guns such as Lomo US, Lomo UK, and Lomo Japan.
