Under Construction: The Konstruktor Launch Party

edited-2416

So, it’s been a while but Lomography has been busy konstrukting something interesting for all of its fans and analogue photography fans! Here it is! On 13 June 2013, the Konstruktor was launched worldwide at Lomography Gallery Stores.

I was pleased to attend the Launch Party at Lomography Gallery Singapore. Here are some photos I took of the set on display at the LGS!

Oh look! You can see what you’re shooting! Focusing works! 😉 Plus, the lens is detachable – which means we might see some interchangeable lenses coming! Hooray!!! During the party, there was a Sandwich Slam (sandwich making contest) going on, and well, who could say No to being part of the action?

Animated creativity

Very honored to be invited to the N.E.mation! 6 Bloggers’ Animation Workshop, which took place on Tuesday (25 October). It was great fun working with my hands at the Stop Motion workshop.

After understanding what Stop Motion was about, we got a chance to experience how a simple Stop Motion clip is made using very simple materials like colored papers and some markers!

Here is my partner (@tangenghui) hard at work!

And a glimpse behind the scene after all the drawing and cutting …

The software (AniMaker) was easy to grasp and very user-friendly, we go the hang of it very quickly and here is our short (and very simple) Stop Motion clip on the adverse effects of air pollution. This was all done in under an hour, including everything from the drawing, cutting and putting everything together. And, it’s our very first attempt, so… try not to laugh (too much) ok? :p

Overall, it was an awesome evening. I learned something new and met some cool peeps. 😉

Today’s Special – La Sardina Recipe

Let’s spend a moment to take in the glorious beauty of the La Sardina before we proceed…

This is the recipe of Today’s Special!

We would need :

1) a La Sardina, and as you can see above, I have one gorgeous piece,

2) a Lomographer (this would be ME!) and of couse,

3) a roll of film!

Today’s weapon of choice : Lomography Redscale XR (Extended Range of 50-400iso)

The next few photos will show you the film is being loaded into the La Sardina 🙂

#1. Press the lever to release the back cover.

#2. Peel it open…

#3. Pull up the rewind knob, to make space for loading the film cassette.

#4. Fill the cassette in, with the film leader extending towards the right / take-up spool.

#5. Fold the film leader so that it stays snuggly on the take-up spool.

#6. Make sure you hook the sprocket (the little holes) onto the take-up spool.

#7. Check that the ‘teeth’ of the crank is also catching onto the sprocket hole(s).

#8. Close the back cover, but you’re not ready to shoot just yet.

#9. Wind the knob until it stops, the film counter should be pointing at “1”.

#10. You’re READY TO SHOOT! (P.S: Please remember to remove the lens cover!)

What’s in my Giant Fisheye Bag?!

Ooo… See the giant fisheye bag with my name!

Let’s take a peek into the bag!!!!!! (So excited!)

Woo hoo!!!!!!!!! The La Sardina Marathon!!!!! Ain’t it gorgeous???! Let’s take a closer look at it!

Thanks to Lomography & Lomography Asia!

What lies ahead is 3 weeks of fun and adventure with this fun little camera!! I am sure it would be a head turner on the streets!

Stay tuned to see what happens next!
