Spontaniety is Key with LomoKino LomoAmigo Pearlgirl77


She lives by the rule "Don't think, just shoot" and applies it in almost every Lomographic opportunity available.

But she has learned that this is not only applicable to shooting film photographs but also when it comes to making LomoKino movies. Ah yes, just crank that LomoKino and have genuine fun! And now it’s time to read how her experience was and how the LomoKino outputs were. From Germany, pearlgirl77 is this week’s LomoKino LomoAmigo!

Tell us about yourself. What do you do for a living? What are your interests?

Hey, I’m Tamara and I’ve been shooting film for around 20 years. I shoot digital too, but my heart loves the analogue way and I hope that I can get more film-related stuff in the next years. I work at a little shop as a photographer.

Love her Lomographs!

Describe the LomoKino in five words.

Unique, cute, fun, must-have, surprising!

How did you like shooting with the LomoKino?

I have only done two films with it but it was really fun to shoot! Hope i can do more films this year.

What or who has inspired you to purchase and use the LomoKino?

My personal choice because I want to try everything.

Any funny or strange encounters you’ve had with it?

No. :(

My LomoSister and Me

If you could shoot any person alive or dead (or imaginary) with your LomoKino, who would it be and why?

Would be Björk as always! I love her style, her music, and just everything about her. She’s a great person and artist.

Kindly share to us any LomoKino movie you love the most.

Any future plans with your LomoKino? More shoots or a full-length film perhaps?

Yes, definitely to do more films with her! I have no specific plans because I’m not a planner. I just shoot and have fun to see what I get.

Your advice to future LomoKino users.

Just shoot! Don’t think and have lot of fun and motion memories!

My Analogue Life 2
