About a month ago my lomo photo was chosen as a minor winner in the tripwolf.com photo contest. The prize--a shirt. A white tripwolf shirt and they instructed me (from their email) that when I receive the t-shirt, I have to take a picture of myself in it in my home-town, or if I'm traveling. Take a picture drinking my favorite coffee, devouring my favorite kabob, hugging my favorite statue or bungee-jumping in my favorite canyon...whatever. Cool enough for me. This is an additional pic of my face all over the net.:) cool!
1. I got too preoccupied deciding which is better: digital or film...digital or film...digital or film...digital or film...damnit, i missed another cool shot.
2. I got busy convincing myself that this photo is beautiful just because it was taken with a lomo camera, but it's really crap. And crap happens.
3. I got obsessed copying other people's stlye, and take for granted my own style that needs to be perfected. 4. I got too fixated on all the techniques that i could google.
5. I was possessed by this gadget spirit whispering behind my ears, that i need to buy this camera and this lens and this camera and this accessories, when i have not yet maximize what i have to its full potential. I should be thinking of how to tell a good story taken with this camera in hand and not go crazy and buy some more camera just because it looks cool.
This is so last year but i want to post my favorite photos just the same, so that this year, there will be no more stupid excuses.
