Let me tell you something about Lomography.

First a big shout out to everyone @Lomography! Their efforts to engage bloggers and users are so inspiring I cannot begin to explain my excitements and appreciations.

The Lomography Sheung Wan gallery store was re-opened after a fancy makeover. ( Let me refresh your memory about the old interior here. ) Now everything is modern, bright and refreshing – though I still very much in love with the old one of its soft lighting and retro touch.

Sam and I, along with many HK bloggers, were invited to a mysterious party called Austria Calling. The party began with a presentation where they reacquainted us with the origin and ideas of Lomography with amazing photos and a lovely story of how it all started. So, basically, to put it in their own wording – What the hell is Lomography? As a long time fan myself, I was really inspired by the presentation to put away my DSLR for a moment and start the multi-camera-bearing actions all over again.

And just as if they could read my mind! We were then invited to a night time adventure and try out the new Lomography camera – SprocketRocket. I love love love the sprocket look on the images, seriously, how much cooler can it get : P It has multiple exposure function and super wide angle lens, and you only need the regular 35mm film to shoot with. It’s like all my favourite features  has come in one camera, plus the super cool sprocket look…. Speaking from my own experience, some of the lomography cameras, for example Fisheye and Colorsplash, gets a bit boring after a while because of its limited features. But I have the feeling that the versatile SprocketRocket’s gonna stay a favourite for quite some time.

A quick reminder to Lomography’s golden rule no. 8 &9.

8. You don’t have to know beforehead what you’ve captured on film…
9. …and you don’t necessarily have to know afterwards, either.

You can tell we’ve been very good bloggers to follow these lomography rules : )And even as pretentious as we bloggers are, we went all out with the crazy faces and quirky moves. Because you know, who cares? You’re not gonna see what had happened in a week or so. Sigh.

Thank you again everyone @Lomography, especially Justin, Edwin, Winki and Jodie – or whoever you are, Mustache girl. I’m so so looking forward to the upcoming projects! Props to the good work!

Isn’t El Capitan the perfect accessory for summer?! haha, honestly I think the camera’s adorble. It’s great for self-protraits because of its super wide angle lens, and with the flash (not to mention the adorable colour filters) it’s just perfect for night out with friends – not that I have any : P I’m making photos with it and hopefully I can develop them asap- fingers crossed :l

I got this skirt from a Swap Party hosted by Tania from T Like Bubble Tea,  seriously, why aren’t swap parties EVERYWHERE!? It’s just so much fun. We all have cute clothes that for some reasons we just wouldn’t wear anyone, and why not swap them with others! This cute pleated skirt is the perfect example of – one blogger’s trash is another blogger’s treasure : P

If you live in Hong Kong and somehow interested in Swap parties, drop me a line or suggest a venue, let see if things would work out!
Stay happy and inspired! Until next time : )

Thank you Lomography : )

La Sardina Launch Party @ Lomography HK

La Sardina Launch Party @ Lomography HK

Last Thursday I was invited to a launch party at Sheung Wan Lomography gallery store, for their brand new – La Sardina – camera. I was really really surprised when I got their invitation email!

I’ve always been a huge fan of Lomography. Not only do I own seven Lomo cameras (Fisheye, Horizon Kompakt, LC-A, Colorsplash, Diana, Holga and Super Sampler), I even put all of them into my backpack and went on a trip to Europe for 80 days. (Yea, that’s also how my knee problem get  started.) What I’m trying to say is, I’m so glad that I got the chance to attend the launch party through The Style Voyager.

I’m still not 100% sure why they got me (or fashion bloggers in general), but I guess it’s because the appearance of La Sardina is very much a fashion accessory, more so than other Lomographic cameras, so they got the idea of incorporating fashion into the party – just a wild guess. But I like the idea of blending the camera into your outfit (or on the other hand, build your outfit around the camera).

The concept of the party is really fun. The gallery store at Po Yan Street was turned into a fish market (Okay I don’t know what they did but the whole place smells like fish) with fish bucket and fishing nets lying around. It was so much fun to have everyone dressed up for the theme – fisherman, though most of them ended up looking sailor-ish. I can tell that they have put a lot of thoughts into the party and it worked out (amazingly).

So thank you everyone @Lomography for the lovely evening and El Capitan! I would have purchased it myself cox a real fan doesn’t miss a thing!

Special thanks to Justin, Edwin and the lovely young lady in floral jumpsuit for showing me around and answering my questions : P Uh I’m bad with names : ( But you’re all really really sweet! Again, thank you for having me in your party!

Photographs by me.

I was having a bad skin day so no photos of me at the event : P  ( Don’t hate on me.) But I’ve put together another outfit with El Capitan as my main accessory. Stay tuned : )

Last but not least – a stolen picture from Lomography Asia’s Facebook Page.
