My Life as an Intern at Lomography

7

How exciting! I started working at Lomography's Headquarter in Vienna. In the next few weeks I will give you some insights of my internship. But one thing after another: first, let me introduce myself!

Hey there! My name is Eva, I am a student of movie science, arts history and german language. I am currently finishing my studies and I still am undecided what to do and where to go afterwards. So for the time being I moved into my Lomohome and started an internship at Lomography’s Headquarter in Vienna.

I love fleamarkets, cakes, Viennese coffeehouses, animating photos from the supersampler and as I grow old I am really into boys with hairy faces. My favourite ice-cream is raspberry and pistachio. I like all kinds of crafts and DIY and just started to experiment with coloring my own fabrics – I really want to sew some clothes because I am pretty bored of big mainstream brands. If I had to pick my favourite movies I would say: Requiem for a Dream, The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover and almost any film from Pedro Almodóvar. I feel kind of lost in the field of music, but I can always listen to Pantha du Prince, disco classics from the 80’s and Jamie Lidell. I really adore the work from Sarah Illenberger, Jenny Holzer and french design duo Zim and Zou. I love to browse Lomography.com for interesting photos and inspiring Tipsters, I like to swim, hang out in the sun and dance the nights away. On top of my wishlist I have Diana Mini and the City Guide Berlin waiting…

Here at Lomography I will intern till the beginning of July, supporting the team for the online magazine. I am really excited and looking forward to have a great and inspiring time. Of course I will keep you updated in what I do, what I find and what I learn.

You’re wondering now how I actually got here? There is a whole site with worldwide job offers ! Have a look maybe your dreamjob is just waiting around the corner and we can exchange experiences soon.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    How Street Photography is Forcing My Eyes Open

    While I have been making attempts to do some street photography in the past two years, I must confess that I've let my introverted side take over countless times, resulting in half-baked (and sometimes half-hearted) snaps. However, once I started letting go of my inhibitions and just immerse myself in the task and experience, I found that street photography forcing my eyes open on so many things.

    My First Roll of Lomochrome Purple 400

    I placed a pre-order for this film maybe 6 or 7 months ago. I'll let you guess how ecxited I was when I received the package last week. I was like a kid in a candy store so I decided to spend the next Sunday in a park I have never been before. The Park Monceau in Paris. The weather was perfect for a first try with this purple gem!

Expose to sunlight or bright UV light for 10-20 minutes or until color reaches full saturation. Machine wash using Inkowash to remove unexposed dye. Double your exposure time in overcast weather. Enjoy the "wow" result!
