I can’t remember how my love for lomography started but I have my fascination for anything vintage to blame. They say shooting with films give you a different feeling. The thrill and excitement you get from waiting for the results. Even if I don’t have a first hand experience but I do understand and feel them. I am not a photographer but I know basics of it as it was taught back in college as our major subject. To be honest, I can’t remember I understand so well what I have learned back then. All I know is I shoot and if it looks good, I’m good with it. I didn’t care so much about exposures and whatever. I got a B grade though (haha). But later on I got in depth lessons from my friends and few people who are interested in digital photography. Learning backwards from digital to basic, and by basic I mean the old school way, I now slowly understand the whole point of films and how it works. Yeah, you can process it in Photoshop but I get what the few film photography enthusiasts are saying now. It’s different the old school way . To quote Ms. Rachel of I STILL SHOOT FILMS , I sincerely believe that film photography still has a place in the photographic world today.
Here’s a few of the first film roll I had with my second installment of lomo cams . I have a HOLGA 135 as my first but unfortunately I wasn’t able to use it around that much. For those who are interested in getting ASF, it’s best to shoot with moving subjects to justify the camera’s name. It catches action in the very least seconds it could get. Anyway, my shots were purely experimental as this is my first try, living up to the lomography rule, “DON’T THINK. JUST SHOOT.”
