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!!!!

    Here and There: Sights by Analog Photographer Dora Kontha

    Dora Kontha makes the familiar worthy of a tribute. She frames icy weather or glinting water so that it looks boundless, more than a spread of pretty blue. Analog photography, her medium of choice, makes these everyday sights as intimate as memory itself.

    The Photography of Réka Koti: Lo-Fi Blurs and Foggy Moods

    Photo travelogues are often sprightly, the forms defined and the colors sharp. Réka Koti has a completely different interpretation. A location is a basis for experiments. Nature is a double-exposure detail or a nebular extension of her model’s frock. Branches and leaves are blurred to look like paint strokes. The outcome is mysterious, and Lomography can’t help asking: What is the alchemy behind these dusky pictures?

    For a casual sightseer, a body of water is just another pretty view. But in the eyes of an observant lomographer, it's a portable gear for painting-like illusions.

    Lomography's Little Lessons: Film Speed

    Sometime between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, a boy in northern Afghanistan was born with a gene mutation that hindered his eyes from producing melanin and thus from turning brown. He had blue eyes. If you see someone with blue eyes today, he is a descendant of this unlucky fellow. I am one of those weird folks and apart from feeling like a mutant and being Angelina Jolie’s secret sister, I am sensitive to light like an ISO 6,400 film.

    Vintage Gallery: Stunts and Balancing Acts

    In 1963, a couture-clad model in a bubble capsule floated through the streets of Paris. Melvin Sokolsky, the mastermind who dreamed it all, photographed her as strangers looked on. Stunts and gravity-defying acrobatics have this effect on people. The sense of danger or impossibility is the attraction; one cannot help but look.

    Angela Izzo on Shooting with the Diana Mini, Photographing Musicians, and Then Some

    While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
