LomoPeople Malaysia: Eastmoe

7

A great and talented lomographer, Eastmoe or his real name is Iskandar Ahmad Rodzai. I was reminded that the main reason I love lomography is because of him as he inspired me to immortalize the precious moment in a unique way.

I met Eastmoe in 2008 and started to develop the interest and skill in Lomography in early 2009. He is a “sifu” for me who assists me a lot in learning new techniques and handling the lomo cameras. Also, he guides me well with his insightful thoughts and advises.

He initiated his passion in lomography by capturing the panoramic view using his first analogue camera, smena 8 in year 2005. After 7 years in this field, he has almost 50 collections on analogue camera such as SLR cameras, point and shoot, rangefinders, Lomography cameras, Polaroids, Fuji Instax, medium format cameras, and panoramic cameras. Even so, his favourite camera is the LC-A.

Eastmoe is now an expert in analogue cameras as experience is the teacher of all things. Moreover, he won most of the competitions in Lomography and therefore it boosts my spirit to achieve the same glory as well as to improve my virtuosity. He is my role model at the same time.

Many people admired him for his generosity in sharing his ideas, tips and tricks, as he is a very informative man. He has a distinct character to make “DIY” and recycle stuff or waste to become useful things.

Besides that, his deep concerns in analogue camera allowing him to widen his career into a business path in repairing, repainting and cleaning the analogue camera. Above all of his great achievement and personality, I wish one day I could follow his footstep.

    A Salute to the Masters: The Democratic Eye (A Tribute to William Eggleston)

    William Eggleston is one of the most important contemporary master and pioneer of color photography. In this article I write a tribute to his particular democratic way of looking around. For him "Nothing was more important or less important", and everything is worthy of being photographed. Again, he is fond of the dear old film; he said that "I don't think much about the digital world, because I am in the analog world!". Read more after the jump!

    A Salute to the Masters: Ducks (A Tribute to Henri Cartier-Bresson)

    This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!

    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!

    A Salute to the Masters: Sports Through A Plastic Lens (A Tribute to David Burnett)

    The great American photographer David Burnett is famous for his unusual photos of sports competitions. He uses a tilt-shift lens to create miniature fakes, or a simple Holga camera to shoot in black and white. To write this tribute, I used my Holga to take some pictures of amateur sport activities around my city. Take a look after the jump.

    Object of My Affection: Subbuteo

    In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
