New not only to the Community but also to the ever-graceful analogue photography, we have got to meet this newcomer from France!

How did you find out about the Community and who/what convinced you to join?
I discovered the site thanks to a friend who is already registered here, aldaer. The Community is pleasant and allows me to discover many things. We find here many different styles, various cultures… I really enjoy it.
As you have read the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography, what rule do you apply in your everyday life?
The rule #2 which is Use it Anytime -- Day and Night.
In this digital age, why still film?
I really appreciate the sensitivity this media allows. The feelings are much stronger and deeper. It could be considered as a visual nostalgia.
What are you looking forward to in our Community?
[I am looking forward] to enhance my creativity by getting inspired by other’s works, to discover new things, to learn new techniques, just to name a few…
Your favorite analogue camera as of the moment? Why?
My favourite and actually only camera is a Canon EOS 300. It belonged to my dad, so I’m really attached to it. This camera is moreover really easy to manipulate due to its light weight and its easily-held shape.
What is the Lomographic camera you’d want to have someday?
The camera I’d like to buy as soon as I can afford it would be a Belair X 6-12 City Slicker.
Please share your current favorite Lomograph.
I’m still a rookie and don’t know the Community enough already to see my opinion considered as serious, but I would go for sandkorn work. Her pictures have non-only beautiful compositions but are also generally easy to understand. I like it!
