    Our Analogue Days: Giving Old Cameras a Second Chance at Life

    Aside from getting our cameras fresh from the Lomography Online Shop/Gallery Stores, many of us also scour second-hand shops, thrift stores, flea markets, and even our own basements, attics, and storerooms at home for some old cameras, praying that we can still get them to work. Each day we bring home, uncover, and shoot with one, we give these cameras a second chance at life. From there, our analogue days begin or carry on.

  • The Underrated Super Camera That Supersampler Truly Is

    The Underrated Super Camera That Supersampler Truly Is

    Supersampler is one among the multi-lensed lomo cameras that seemed to have taken a backseat to give way to the prominence of LC-A+, La Sardina, and Fisheye – three of the heavily advertised and marketed LSI products in a multitude of clones, colors and promo packages. But, frequent visitors to my lomohome would probably have an impression that many of my multiple exposures are taken with at least a multi-lensed camera like Pop 9, Actionsampler, Oktomat and, of course, the queen of them all, the Supersampler. This article is my tribute to the latter's wonderful analogue charms.

    Recipe for a Moderately Successful Series of Personal Grooming Photos in a Confined Public Space

    Some people eat breakfast on the train. Some people put on make up in the car. Some people read in the toilet. They might call it multitasking and pat themselves on the back; I call it uncreative, boring, practical, and shave in the photobooth. As they say in France, "To each his own (only they say it in French)."

    The Story So Far with the Lubitel+

    On February, I graduated with my Masters Degree and I was so happy! No more exams and obviously no more thesis to write!

So a week after my graduation, I bought the camera I've been waiting for years: the Lubitel+! Here's my story so far with this camera!

    The Wizarding World Through a Lens

    No witchcraft and wizardry can replace a good analogue camera -- Colin Creevey can testify to that! When it comes to photography, witches and wizards don't mind indulging in a little muggle technology. Arthur Weasley, however, still thinks a Lomo Oktomat is some sort of pixie prison.

    LomoPeople Malaysia: Mohd Ariff

    He has the passion that's hard to find in many people. A little bit older than me, still single and available (if he's not hiding about his relationship status from me). Friendly enough with friends, enemies and strangers. Little bit funny, but sometimes friends don't get it. Always dizzy when he has long distance road trips. And at this time, he can be proud of himself for holding a 'lomoamigo' title.

    La Sardina Tours Manila with icuresick

    When Lomographic Embassy Manila announced that they're bringing La Sardina to their stores here in the Philippines, I emailed them and asked if I could "beta test" it. Team Manila, the official Lomography distributor in the Philippines, replied and was kind enough to allow me to use one. On August 20, I got the Fischers Fritze at their store and went shooting immediately the next day.
