Sorry for being a ghost this week, you know how all university assessments always seem to be concentrated during the same week? Yep, well that week is coming up for me and that is next week! And guess what else is on next week… MELBOURNE SPRING FASHION WEEK!!
My friends and i are going to a couple of shows each and also i just wanted to say that.. i got a position to help out for one of the shows backstage!!! Really really excited as i originally got to the interview stage and got rejected again, but they put us all on the waiting list and then yesterday i got a call from MSFW asking if i was still interested! Yay! I had applied for L’oreal earlier this year but was rejected so i guess persistence pays! I didn’t want to pick up too many shifts because of all the assessments that are coming up in uni (accounting is so depressing) but still wanted to be part of it so i am now doing back stage for one of the shows during the week. This will be my first experience ever in a sort of ‘fashion industry’ thing.
Today, i went to the induction for it and yeah, was so super excited i felt like quitting uni to pursue a fashion course! We were briefed about our duties in a room where the peter alexander rack was all ready and yeah, it looked just like gossip girl and now i am excited as ever for next week. It is going to be absolutely stressful (homework) but so exhilarating at the same time (msfwmsfwmsfw). I might not be update too often next week due to everything that’s going on, but be sure to hear from me soon! perhaps on the weekend :):)
Anyway, a little bit of a different post today, i thought i would share with you some scans of a few photos i have taken on my holga :) I own the 120CFN and have run both 120 film and 135 film through it. If you would like to know how to run 35mm film through your 120 camera, you can try youtubing ‘Kaituba’ (I think his name was) who has lots of great tutorials for lomo cameras :)
Anyway, i am a huge fan of (amateur) photography and wish i had more time to just travel around and take photos of anything and everything. Part of the reason why i haven’t been taking any photos lately is that i always seem to leave my dslr at home when i go out (hence you hardly see any photos of me out and about), mainly because it is so big and bulky to carry around!
I recently entered a photography competition hosted by Teds Cameras, a lovely camera specialists chain in Australia. I’ve had my photos developed there before and the people i talked to was very friendly in helping me with my 120 film! Did you know that the ‘colour’ roll of film that comes with your Holga Starter Kit is actually black and white?!
Anyway, the competition lets you enter up to five photos of your city and it is held to celebrate Ted’s 40th birthday! I thought it would be a great chance to enter a few of my film photography pics in so i uploaded three of my city shots. There are three winners and they are determined by the one with the most/highest rated photo.
THE PICS I ENTERED :)

If you like the photographs i entered, i would love it if you could help by clicking 5 stars to vote for me :). It only takes two seconds as you don’t have to sign up! You are allowed to ask people you know to vote for you, and i sort of feel bad for doing it but i thought i might as well or else i would get knocked out of the competition for not asking anyone, as i have done in the past! To those who do click through, please don’t stalk my real name you’ll make me paranoid =o
I really appreciate it if you voted for me!
So i plan to take lots of photos this summer break, would you be interested in seeing some photography on this blog too?
