When I started with Lomography I was pretty young. I think it was 2 years ago, so I was 16. At the beginn of my career as a lomographer I was pretty shy to take my camera out and make photos. Weather it was a shoot of my friends or just the landscape. I always thought that the other people could think: what strange thing is that? Is that a real camera?
But time after time I started too take my camera everywhere with me, especially on the weekends. It was so much fun to take photos of my friend at parties. And they didn’t thougt: what strange camera is that… What they said was: “Oh my god, that camera looks great, can it really take real photos, that’s amazing. Oh and that flash is too bad, I can’t see anything anymore.”
And so became Lomography, my Diana and LC-A a big part of my life. And they still come out with my everyday and everynight I go out and we always have great fun. Lomography made a new connection between me and my friends. I’m always the guy who has a camera with himself and a lot of people recognize me because I’m on of the few in our city with a Lomo-, Analoguecamera.
So if here are some people who are new with lomography, go out, take your camera everywhere and the people will love you :)
