LomoPeople Malaysia: My Sister, Samantha Chan

3

She is tall, she is pretty, she looks like a model, she is my sister, Samantha Chan.

I met her 14 years ago, when I was 1. She was a chubby little baby and she had hair like Albert Einstein’s, but now she has grown into a beautiful lass. She is precious because she is the only young woman in our family, meaning my paternal grandmother only has her as a granddaughter.

She is also a vlogger (video blogger), she has a youtube account and she vlogs about all sorts of things. I have made some appearances in her videos. She is not really interested in photography. She is more into acting and singing. What I admire the most about her is that she can play the traditional Malay musical instrument, Saron Barung, which is really cool. She plays in a gamelan group at school.

On her birthday this year which is on 9th of December, I have decided to purchase a Lomography camera as a present for her, but I have not decided what camera to buy (what do you recommend?). I want her to be involved in the Lomography world, too.

    I've not used a Lomo LC-A+ yet, but if I was introducing someone younger into the hobby I would start with a 35mm, then let them ease into 120 later when they've practiced. I've had success and so have my kids with a La Sardina, if your budget is tight - great start! Must be one with a flash though, much more flexible. Perhaps a Diana Mini would be good too.

    Though, if she is into video, maybe go straight for LomoKino!!!!

    Summer Hot Spots: Escaping the Heat at Cameron Highlands

    It’s normal during summer to be out there at the beach, sunbathing and getting yourself a nice tan, but in Malaysia, it could get pretty hot this time of the year. With the rising temperature, my friends and I decided to escape the heat of the city for a while and took an approximately three-hour drive to Cameron Highlands.

    A Salute to the Masters: The Girl with the Scarred Face (A Tribute to Juergen Teller)

    This is a tribute to Juergen Teller, a great fashion photographer who continues to work with analogue cameras. In the 1990s he radically changed the way to make fashion photography. His models appear "soap and water", without heavy make-up, and his images seem taken like an amateur photographer. Between his nice works, there is a photos that I like so much, taken in Cuba and called "The Girl with the Broken Nose." Take a look after the jump!
