Hello, tell us a bit about yourselves and your Lomographic journey.
Salam, Hai, Hello! My name is Mohd Fazle, just call me Fad. I stay and grew up in Johor Bahru. I dream of going to other places, meeting other people from around the world. Looking back in year 2004 or 2005, my big brother brought a SuperSampler. I did not use it since then, but on a one fine day in 2009, I grab it out and shoot with it. Since then I fall in love with the results and in Lomography and analogue photography.

Show us your favorite photo in your collection and why?
This photo is taken at Dataran Johor Bahru using my first analogue camera — Holga 135. I like the results a lot.

Yes, I’m part of the local community — Analogue Freak. I met Shahrul Nazree at the Siren Night event and spotted him using a TLR camera. Analogue brought us together. Then we made friends and keep in touch using Facebook. Right after he started the community, I take part and actively join all the outings and events of that community.

Looking good! Tell us what the best part shooting with a bunch of Lomography enthusiast?
Meeting up new friends, sharing the tips of the new camera, and what’s more? We could meet up and enjoy EATING TOGETHER!!!

Do you enjoy shooting alone or do you prefer shooting together with the community?
I do enjoy shoot with community, but sometime, I do enjoy shooting alone as well.

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
