LomoGuru of the Week: Sobetion


Sometimes we'd like to give out "most friendly" awards in this Community because the LomoLovin' just keeps on pourin' that we can't help but feel overwhelmed!

But don’t you worry because I swear it’s not a bad thing. It’s so great, actually! We just want all those love to keep on coming! And as for this week’s LomoGuru? Man, this guy sure is from the most friendly bunch! And don’t you forget the jaw-dropping Lomographs he produces by a single (or double!) click from his shutter!

Keep your eyes intact with our interview with sobetion from Thailand because you might just see a shout-out! Read on for amazing Lomographs and tips, too! Enjoy! :)

Share to us your most memorable experience in the Lomographic Community.

This Community surprises me a lot and with that, I should talk about a lot of friendship between Lomographers.

A special thanks to blueskyandhardrock for the lovely gift “Holga Micro." She shipped this surprise across the ocean which I was very glad to receive. Thank for your lovely friendship from abroad, Michelle. :D

And to one of the most important person to me, my sister ohoska! Thank you very much for lending me the a Diana F+ lens. I made lots of masterpieces with that!

The last memory for me, thank you opon21 a good brother for surprising me with a lovely camera, the “Kodak Ektra 100 and Aquapix." He also gave me a lot of analogue techniques! Lots of love in this Lomo Planet! :D

Have you actually met people in the Community that you now consider as close friends? If yes, name at least one of them.

It’s really hard for me to choose one so I choose them all! opon21,, ohoska, wapclub, 134340, hhjm, dakadev_pui, stecha, jeng, inine, modern_nmt, heart2heart, imgap, sadurtay, somooblacklist, i_am_four-eyes, drpuiful, jackpacker — they give me a lot inspiration and knowledge. I really love them!

But not only in Thailand because there are other talented Lomograhers who I love and want to meet such as atria007, blueskyandhardrock, adi_totp, goonies, lostlittlekid, flashstalker, azotolina, bebopbebop, bloomchen, grazie, vici, sprofishgel, mafiosa, stonerfairy, qrro, kathepalacio, tere, gotoarizona, superkulisap, ripsta, superlighter, zorzyo, upic, palkina, feelux, jetnz81, emkei and japsix. All who I want to make a doubles project with!

Just a few of his doubles projects with Lomographers from all over the world!

Do you think you’ll still be taking Lomographs in the next 5 years? Why?

Sure! I think Lomography is fantastic and it surprises me everytime! There is no right or wrong for there is imagination! it makes me love traveling, the sunshine, and the sky. I am a Lomography addict and if there’s no Lomography, I just do not know how to live my life.

What is your favorite Lomo camera and why? Do you have any memorable experiences while using this camera?

My favorite camera is the LC-A+ and the LC-Wide because I like its features. It has an automatic exposure and an enhanced ISO setting. It can make perfect doubles from my imagination (and my friend’s, too!) Being able to carry it easily is also important. It’s my fantastic camera! :)

It had to be both the LC-A+ and LC-Wide for his favorite Lomographic camera question!

Aside from that, it also makes a lot of memories with my girlfriend. I always smile whenever I see her in my Lomographs. Plus I have a lot of memories through doubles projects with friends from around the world.

Please share your most favourite Lomographic photo that you took and explain why.

Credits: sobetion

I’d choose “Supernova.” This photo is my favorite portrait of my girlfriend. This is from my first roll of cross-processed film using my first camera, the Diana Mini. Wow! Such a surprise!

Is there any advice you can give to new analogue shooters?

Just shoot [with all] your heart and you will get the masterpiece that you want. Hope you enjoy! :D

Do you think you’re qualified as a LomoGuru? Got something to share in our Community? Then drop me a line at mayee.gonzales@lomography.com and you might become the next LomoGuru!

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
