Newcomer of the Week: Lanegret

1

Who would have known that one camera can change one's perspective in photography and at the same time be extraordinarily hooked?

For that just happened with this week’s featured Community newcomer, lanegret! Crazy how the La Sardina made her stay (and gave her fun) in this Community, eh? Let us know more about this lady in our interview with her!

Name: Carolina Negret
Lomography Home: http://www.lomography.com/homes/lanegret
Location: Glasgow
Current Film Camera(s): La Sardina Cosmic Edition

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

I knew there was a big buzz out there about Lomography but it wasn’t until I got my Sardina that I eventually discovered the Lomography Community and I’ve been hooked ever since!

Any inspirations when it comes to taking film photographs?

For me, photography is an instinctive spontaneous ritual, so more than inspiration, I’ve found that the city itself has been the most important subject in my work. I love Glasgow, the architecture is beautiful and wherever you look at there’s always something worth capturing. I take pictures everywhere I go, so they are like a journal about my wee trips around town.

Any song or movie you live by?

Innuendo by Queen. I watched the video when I was 11 and I’m still moved by it. It’s such a beautiful song; it made want to do stop motion animation and in the lyrics I found all the answers to the meaning of life. Really.

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

Be fast!

In this digital age, why still film?

Back home, I shot film for most of the 90s using my loyal Pentax K1000. I would develop the film and blow up the pictures myself. At some point it became very expensive and we were gradually forced to stick to the “easier” digital way. And this was great because it opened our eyes to new, exciting possibilities without much effort. Eventually, I got bored of it and I ended up using the manual setting of my DSLR almost all the time, which was rather silly. There’s this sense of integrity when it comes to film that makes it a much more rewarding process, it’s full of surprises and that is exciting.

What are you looking forward to in our Community?

Everything! I’ve had such a brilliant welcome in the Community — it’s been incredible. I’m looking forward to do some film-swaps, more experiments, and to learn from all these amazing photographers.

Carolina’s play with light.

Your favorite analogue camera as of the moment? Why?

I own two adorable Polaroid 600, but the price of film has turned the whole experience into a luxury. These days I’m absolutely in love with my La Sardina, I got it just a few weeks ago and it has made me believe in photography again. I’m a bit obsessed with its multiple exposure setting at the moment, La Sardina makes it all so simple in the best possible way.

What is the Lomographic camera you’d want to have someday?

Definitely a pinhole camera, I would love to go as basic as I can.

Your favorite section or page in our Lomography site?

The Tipsters section, there’s so much to learn out there!

Share your current favorite Lomograph. Why?

This was one of my first experimental double exposures with the La Sardina, I love how the composition came out and the ancient feel to it.

    Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.
