I lent my Actionsampler to my friend Alicia and she become "lomographer" for a day. Do you want to see what she did?
Maybe you can recognize her face because she is in a lot of pics in my lomohome.
I chose her because I know she loves photography and she is always interested in my cameras and photographs. So I decided to lend her one of my analogue cameras during one of the days we spent with our friends in El Medano during the Holy Week. She chose the Actionsampler or “the movement´s camera” as she says.
I developed the film and I sent her the results. Then I interviewed her asking for the experience.
When was the last time you shot with an analogue camera?
I think it was 6 years ago.
How would you describe the experience?
First it was exciting but afterwards I feel a bit disappointed with the results
Which is the pic that you liked the most and why?
I like the one with the shadow, I love the silhouette and the contrast
Imagine you have the the ability to teleport, where would you go with this camera and a lot of film?
Never Never Land. Because there are a lot of children, colors and movement. And there are no parents telling you what to do, so you can take a lot of interesting photos.
Which analogue camera would you use?
A Canon reflex camera.
After trying the Actionsampler , would you like to shoot with analogue cameras again?
I start itching for it…
What do you think about the current trend towards vintage and analogue stuff?
I think it is romantic, but on the other hand, I think that it has brought creative photography nearer to a lot of people.
And here are the photos that Alicia took. I understand that she was a little disappointed with the results. I felt the same with my first shots with the Actionsampler. Most of people and objects were out of the frame. But I like her pics a lot.
What do you think about the results?. Write something in the comments to encourage her to shoot again with analogue cameras. Thanks a lot.

What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.
What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!

Every summer I get a burst of analogue excitement when I see the flowers starting to bloom. My favorite summer pastime is to take glorious shots of plants and flowers, and for perfect dreamy shots, I like to use the Diana Close-Up lens. Join me as I take you through a garden of analogue delights.
There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.
As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
How do you bring a fresh perspective to a landscape that has been photographed from every possible angle? Using a brand-new film, of course! With this goal in mind, I loaded some LomoChrome Turquoise XR into my Nikon 35Ti and went on a major trip across southern Utah and northern Arizona.
