5 & 6 December 2010

On the way up and down Mt. Bungkul Baka, the trek will pass by a small Aeta community. I took the opportunity to portrait shoot a mother carrying her child on her arms when I interacted with them while waiting for the rest of the group to reach the site. When I got back to Manila, I tried to finish the doubles with another camera with fancy shots in Mall of Asia. The result is one eureka moment for me as both a lomographer and a mountaineer. Indeed, creative photos (like this double) make me even more addicted to my present hobbies.

We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!
