The idea of heading out to the various national monuments, armed with a fun lomo camera, sounded too irresistible and I immediately jumped at the opportunity to sign up for the monument walk x lomography workshop. Being a fan of all things romantic and whimsical, it’s not surprising to know that yours truly has always been interested to dabble in lomography. However, I guess procrastination (as always) got the better of me and that particular interest eventually turned into a couple of years of waiting. Oh well, better late than never.
Together with some of my favourite UB girlfriends, we ventured about the National Museum, Former Tao Nan School (now the Peranakan Museum) & Armenian Church and picked up historical snippets of these places. Along the way, we had a ball of fun experimenting a mix of multiple exposure and overlapping frames to produce a myriad of pictures which are often deemed as “bad photography” in the eyes of the professional photographer. The golden key, as we were taught, was to “Don’t think, just shoot!”. Love the feelings of anticipation and excitement as I waited for the final results to be unveiled and I must say that all of us were very pleased with our pictures! 🙂
Cost? $30 inclusive of the rental loan of Diana F+ camera, film and development. The experience? Priceless.
