Okay, since my digital pocket camera is broken (again, for the 3rd time), I think it's about time for me not to use it anymore, time to change my photography path, or to change my camera.
Actually there are 3 things in photography that I had interested in. They are analog camera, black & white photography, and... lo-fi camera photography.
Since I have Nikon FM10 as my first photography equipment, makes me want to explore more in photography using such kind of camera, the analog and/or mechanic SLR camera. There is a site in Tumblr that I use to follow, its name is Tokyo Camera Style, it posts is about cameras that still used in Tokyo, Japan, and guess what? Most of them are analog/mechanic SLR!

Can you imagine? They still sell many kinds of film rolls there! Although it explain that using this kind of SLR camera is really expensive here :( I have to buy the films, then pay for the post-production activities (cuci-scan/cetak).
I went for films in Pasar Baru, the most known place in Jakarta for cheap photography needs. And voila! I accidentally bought a very cheap black&white (B/W) film! Until now, I don't know what to do with that. Lol. But kinda interesting to try. Black & white has their own impression in creating photos.

If you have any idea for executing black&white photography, let me know it :) my comment box will be open for you all. Hehe.
Having interest ini analog photography bring my interest to another kind of photography community here in Jakarta & Bandung, it called KLASTIC, they provide community for plastic and toy camera users, or any kind of lo-fi (low-fidelity) camera. You may take a look to the link under:

Now I'm in my 1 month holiday, and I have to plan a photography project, execute many pictures, and do more photo hunting.
But I need money! And right now I have to do saving for my needs, too! *dilemma
