The first week of the new year is winding to a close. The beginning of 2015 has given me mixed feelings about various things, but I guess it all boils down to the same old thing: perspective. I was getting pretty comfortable with where I was, but it’s evident that I am slowly being kicked out of that nest. I’ve been telling myself that these situations are definitely positive challenges for growth; but you know, there are just these rainy days where it is best to remain bundled up in the fortress of your best blanket.
Hopefully the many times that I will be sitting at the edge of my chair with squinted eyes, going over the smallest details again and again will not be in vain. If practice makes perfect, then all I’d have to do is to practice a ton right?
Here’s to another year of growing up and lesser bitching in 2015. Cheers!
Light does make a difference.
Sometimes we may be too quick to judge situations or people, but we’ll never know the truth until we see everything in its light.
Before I went to bed, I tinkered with the pictures I posted before to discover what I could reveal just by maxing out the brightness.
So much details were hidden. Thankfully, more grain and noise are always welcomed in the lomo world. Here we go again.
LOMOGRAPHY ISO 800 x SUPERHEADZ UWS TOMODACHI AI
When I first purchased my supersampler (my first and last original lomo that lasted for 4 rolls and died on me), I had to learn the hard way. One essential rule was to only shoot in daylight. The bright and sunny outdoors. There I was, shooting at home, in the main kitchen (when the light source was seriously shit), in malls, in pretty dark places. I think the first roll yield 1 shot, second roll yield nothing but a long long roll of black, third roll 4-5 shots, fourth roll 3-4 shots..and then it died (I need to fix the cord but I have no guts to take it apart). I paid for the camera, processing and felt bitter.
Sometimes I feel like that all over again.
For the first time ever, 800 film! I was psyched because it was the UWS’ first roll and I wanted to experiment double exposing. I’m glad I did, if not most of it would have come out black. (What in the heavens right?! It’s supposed to be 800!!!) Despite all of that, I do have a few favorite shots here..hehe
I swear from now on I’m only going to shoot when the sun is the highest in the sky, and I’m going to be standing right beneath it.
