Lomokino Wednesday: Forty-Seven Photos of Rain

forty-seven photos of rain from grEGORy simpson on Vimeo.

Perfect for the rainy weather and my “Walking Dead” addiction mode. I don’t know why I felt like I’m in a zombie movie while watching this video, maybe because of the sound? And the ambiance? Maybe. The black and white shots and the soundtrack fit so perfectly together!

I’m a fan!

This haunting lomokino video was made by Egor and I found this in Lomography.com.

The Ten Golden Rules (ver.2)

All shots by me using Holga 135BC and Underwater Camera with Kodak and Fuji Superia films.

1. Take your camera everywhere you go.
Taken in Liliw, Laguna. Very old place, I love the details on the brick.

2. Use it any time – day and night.
My first successful long exposure shot with my Holga 135BC. We were waiting for the green light so I placed my camera on the dashboard of our car and just ‘bulb-ed’ (I made up this term).

3. Lomography is not an interference in your life, but a part of it.
Also shot in Liliw, Laguna while shopping for footwear. I actually didn’t shopped, husband and I just walked around the street and caught this lovely street vendor.

4. Try the shot from the hip.
This is one of my epicly failed shots. I didn’t know I was shooting on a B mode on a daylight so it looked blurred, but I still loved this shot though. Now I know how the world looks like for people who lost their glasses!

5.  Approach the objects of your Lomographic desire as close as possible.
I don’t know what this is, I just snapped. Lol.

6. Don’t think. (William Firebrace)
This was taken from a “man-made” forest near a pool. My inspiration was Hunger Games and the Twilight forest. I’m not sure how many exposures I made on this one and I am not sure if this is the right side, anyway, this is just beautiful.

7. Be fast
My husband swimming!

8.  You don’t have to know beforehand what you captured on film.
Same batch as the failed bulb-mode-on-daylight. Our puppy is actually drinking from a cup!

9. Afterwards either.
And then the puppy got tired.

10.  Don’t worry about any rules.
On or Off?

Bucket List: Shooting Strangers

Shooting Strangers. Sounds weird.

But Taking-Pictures-of-Strangers is too long for a title, so… lol.

I know this is one of the problems of any other newbie (or non-newbie) photographers like me, taking snap-shots of strangers! A lot of questions always pop in my head everytime I think about doing this on a random day like a. Would I piss off the strangers if I take pictures of them without them knowing? b. What would they do to me if they see me take a picture of them? c. What would I say if they ask me why I did that? d. Is that even allowed? e. Will I get arrested? And the list go onnnn…I read somewhere that there came a time when taking pictures of strangers got banned, I think in the US, maybe because of the terrorism and stuff, so I understand that one. And I heard last year that even here in the Philippines, taking photos of our National Hero’s statue is banned too – this one I can’t understand, but this is a different story.

Sometimes, I just go with my instinct to just shoot that person very quick, stuff my camera (or just let go of it since it’s always hanging on my neck) in my bag, and pretend that nothing happened. More often than not, I take pictures of strangers behind them so they won’t see me. Haha. But then I got the courage to do some face to face shots and I actually get some good photos, but some of them looked like it was “staged” because the strangers just smiles at me when they see the camera.I would really love to do this more often though because it’s such a rush when you see the pictures turn out good!

So without further ado, here are a few (literally FEW) of my shots:

My FAVORITE!

Holga 135bc + Kodak Part 2

This summer has been so fun! I went to two beaches: Anilao, Batangas and to Puerto Galera. The first one, Anilao, we went there all expenses paid! Yep, you heard me. It was a sort-of promo for teachers and I am so glad that my co-teachers and I got to have that break. Too bad I never knew that my cousin has an underwater camera that time so I was only able to bring my Holga and of course, I never did get a chance to take pictures when we snorkled (!). It would’ve been awesome if I was able to take pictures of the things that we saw that day! The weather was amazing, though the waves were huge! It was so hard flapping our arms and legs but it was worth it!

Here are just a few of my shots taken with Holga 135bc and Kodak:

On our way to the beach.

Right after the boat ride.

Our matching sandals!

Clear water!

Jetty. On our way to another island.

Lanay.

Snorkeling!

Bucket List: Diana Mini (part 2)

I’m seriously having a hard time analyzing what to choose: A Diana Mini? Or a Pinhole camera? I’m still at a loss, but I can’t deny these Diana Mini shots are worth it!
