LomoPeople Malaysia: Farah Atiqah

Farah Atiqah is a girlfriend of mine. She was born on September 1st 1989. We have been friends since July 2009.

The first time I showed my Lomography camera to her, she was not interested at all, except for Lomography Actionsampler. She told me that the camera design is very beautiful and colorful. She also said that I am crazy because no one is using film or analogue camera nowadays. I told her that I love analogue so much more than digital.

In October 2011, after I became active again in the analogue world, I invited her to join an outing organized by Photo Crafts Malaysia at Batu Caves, Selangor. She was very excited because the participants had their Diana Mini camera, Spinner 360 camera, Actionsampler Flash camera, La Sardina camera, etc.

I gave her my refurbished Lomo LC-A to take some shot by herself. Below is a shot from Farah:

But I think Lomo LC-A is not suitable for a newbie. Last week, I accompanied my friend to go Lomo shopping. I brought Farah to look for a camera model from Lomography. She was very excited after looking at the La Sardina Metal Edition - Czar and told me that she will buy this camera soon. I know she’s very serious because she is starting to love the moments that I snap using my Lomo LC-A Refurbished and Lomo LC-Wide.

Hope she will learn more about Lomography; I am very much willing to help her.

    Remarkable Behind-the-Scenes Stills from Oscars Best Picture Nominees

    The Academy Award for Best Picture is certainly one of the top prestigious awards that a filmmaker can ever get in his or her entire career. Ever since it was first given in 1929, a total of 86 films have been given this award – a really huge honor, considering that this number is but a small part of the total 512 nominations.

    LomoChrome Purple 120 and 35mm: Expect the Radical!

    I was given a roll of LomoChrome Purple 120 by a friend who was keen for me to try it out since he didn't have a medium format camera. I really didn't expect the results I got when I took it out for a test run on a bright winter's day in London.
