Newcomer of the Week: Kathrynisi

Just like how a volatile virus spreads in the air, is how quickly she caught the analogue bug! And upon her realisation, it’s not that harmful of a virus after all! She’s here with us to tell us more about her latest obsession with cameras and everything Lomography, as she is our Newcomer of the Week!

Name: Kathryn Williamson
LomoHome: http://www.lomography.com/homes/kathrynisi
Location: Scotland
Camera Shelf: Practika BCA, Lomography Fisheye One, Polaroid 600

How did you find out about the Community and who/what convinced you to join?

I was researching analogue photography after rediscovering my Polaroid 600 and Lomography was just everywhere! It seemed a great place to share photos so I joined after I got my first few rolls of film back and I had caught the bug.

Is there anyone in the Lomographic Society you look up to? If yes, who is him/her and why?

I like just hitting random photo and exploring other people’s photos, ones I like always seem to pop up.

As you have read the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography, what rule do you apply in your everyday life?

My cameras come everywhere!

In this digital age, why still film?

I like that analogue makes you think about what you shoot, it’s not just clicking away and having a hundred chances at a photo.

Share your current favorite Lomograph (could be yours or a friend’s) and explain why it is your favorite.

I took this just on chance and it came out so well, one of my first films as well. Chuffed!

Newbie, rookie, neophyte or whatever you call them, our new breed of the ever-growing band of Lomographers are set to conquer the analogue land with their brand new hip-shooting abilities! And this is where we feature them along with their wistful thoughts and the freshest snaps each week!
