Hello! Tell us a bit about yourself.

I’m a happy go lucky person. I love photography since I was 10 years old and I started with film cameras. Besides photography, I love music and traveling. I prefer to travel by land to enjoy the scenery, discover more about the country and try to capture images along the journey.

How many Lomography cameras do you have in your collection?

I have around 15 Lomography and film cameras.

We’re sure it’s hard to pick one, but which Lomography camera is your all time favourite? And which camera is on your wishlist right now?

The LC-A+ is my all time favourite camera. A camera which has been on my wishlist for a while now has to be the Horizon Perfekt!

Please share with us your top 3 favourite shots (taken by yourself of course) ever, and tell us a bit about each photo.

This was taken at a good friend’s wedding in Malaysia. This is my self-double. I took shots of stars and galaxies for the first shots and then I use the same roll to reshoot for their wedding, like having a wedding floating in the galaxy. Just adding a little bit of surrealism.

Another double and this time it’s with my husband. He went to Europe in April 2011. I figured it’ll be great idea to do a double with him. First shots were taken in Singapore by me. I never really planned my shots and I just went trigger happy whatever views are good. When he came back with the finished role, I sent it out to print and found out that one particular shot was coincidentally joined. One building from Singapore and another building, probably a tomb he visited in Paris. This is one of the sweetest shots by Yahu-D (my husband) and me.

I love to go to gigs and shoots the crowds with band performances. It’s always about the motion and being pushed around when the band’s playing. The gigs that I always love to checkout are the loud ones. Much preferred Metal & Punk/HC gigs. These are the gigs where the crowds are usually more passionate about the music and there’s also the attitude and emotions towards the music plus it’s usually intense. Keeps me on my toes waiting for the right moment to happen and if you missed it, it’ll end up like this photo. Probably one of my favourite photos cause it reminds me that I missed this guy stage dive into the crowd by 2 seconds! So what I got are his legs hanging in the air. So what happened to him? Did he make it? See..these are the photos I like to share. An interactive photograph asking what, why, and how?

What do you like about the Lomography community?

It brought me friendships from all over the world! People from all walks of life that share the same interest in film cameras and photography. They’re fun, loving people and friendly too! We do doubles and experiment together with the films and shots from each other through this community. I would love to visit my Lomo friends in neighbouring countries and Europe especially in the future, but of course only time will tell. So far they always make us feel welcome.

As a Lomography Singapore Community Star, do you want to share any advice or tips for Lomographers out there?

Don’t be afraid to experiment with the films. Film cameras usually don’t rely much on editing through computer software and we should try not practice that. It’s more fun in analogue, must also be adventurous in the technical specs as well.

I did some experiments on most of my films, like DIY redscale, soak the film in detergent, masking and doubles with friends overseas.

Don’t be upset if your photos don’t turn out well because it’s unpredictable. The picture can turn into all sorts of weirdness but there’s also some beauty in spoilt pictures, in time you’ll figure it out.

    Derek Woods is an Los Angeles-based photographer who previously got involved in a controversy surrounding a photo that was used in the opening credits of the HBO TV series "True Detective." Coincidentally, Woods happens to be a member of the Lomo community, and it became vital to interview him regarding the issue. The interview was successful and was published in May last year. His current project, 365 of Lomography, will chronicle his day-to-day exploits with Lomography cameras. To jog your memory, and to re-acquaint you with Woods, we are republishing our interview with the controversial photographer. Please take note that some of the photos are NSFW.
