Recently, I've been stuck on thinking about places to store my many cameras. I want them to be on display but I don't want them to be covered in dust either! Read on to find out how I fixed my problem with a fun DIY solution.
There have been so many different ideas on how to store our beloved cameras printed here in the Magazine. From bookcases, picture frames to shelves. Finally after searching in second hand furniture stores, I came across a display cabinet that I knew would be perfect. It would protect my cameras from all the dust but also allow my ever growing collection of 22+ cameras to be seen and be easily accessible! The only problem was the cabinet was in pretty bad shape. The wood was stained and the glass display pretty dirty. Then began the work…
I started off my cleaning the glass up and sanding down any rough edges on the wood. Once it was all clean I painted the cabinet completely white with primer to get ready to add the final colour. I knew this cabinet would be a main feature of the room so had to be a bold colour. I found the perfect shade of yellow,went to the store and had it specially made in a wood paint.
Here’s the final result! Let me know what you think.

My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.
Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone.

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.
