Interview with Instax Shooters Charlene Epple and Nathan Wyse!

Our two newest and favorite Instax shooters are Charlene Epple and Nathan Wyse. Their trusty camera is their LC-Wide, and they love using their Instant back. Find out more about this shooting duo and check out some cool photos they have already taken with their LC-Wide + Instant back.

1. Tell us about you!
Nathan and Charlene are a couple living in Pilsen with a passion for photography. Charlene’s first camera was a Pentax Super Program her father bought her for Christmas in her sophomore year in high school. It came with a star filter that she went crazy with shooting candles and bright lights. Nathan, as a child, used to beg his parents for film for his Canon 110ED to take candid photos of unsuspecting people and still lifes. When he wasn’t taking pictures he was honing his skills as a photo-bomber.

2. How did you first discover Lomography?
Charlene collected a few Lomos in college and after collecting much dust while working in digital, she and Nathan were walking past the Lomography store in Wicker Park recently and decide to purchase the Lomo LC-Wide with the intent of only shooting film on vacation in Mexico.

3. What do you like about instant film?
We like the manual aspect mixed with the instant gratification and spontaneity

4. What are your favorite things to shoot with your instant camera?
Close-ups and shooting indoors seem to give the best results

5. Do you have any fun projects you’re working on?
We’re putting together our Mexico vacation photos to present to our family and friends.

    From Russia with Love: Motorama Shoots with the La Sardina Splendour

    I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.

    LomoAmigos: The Ting Tings Go Analogue!

    The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.

    Valeriie Liin and The Cameras She Brings

    There are things that artist Valeriie Liin can't leave the house without: her earphones, two notebooks, keys to her home in Taiwan, and a little color palette for painting. It's not always that she can paint, though, so for those times she turns to her cameras.
