The Lomography Team Canada had a nice interview with Anne:
Which one is your favourite Lomography camera and why?
I love my Diana F+ Hong Meow! I’ve taken it on many holidays and nothing captures the light, beaches and sunsets in Hawaii quite like it.
What’s the weirdest Lomographic moment you’ve ever had?
My 2 year old daughter was given a Lomography Diana Mini as a gift, and I thought she wasn’t old enough to know what it was, but she picked it up and stuck it right to her face and said “cheese” with a big smile.
What is the nerdiest question you’ve ever been asked in your shop?
Not really nerdy, but we’ve had a few teenagers ask us, “What’s film”?
Where is the best place to shoot some Lomographic masterpieces in your city?
