Tell us something about yourself.

I like photography, sunshine, and the sound of the shutter. I’m not a professional photographer.

Tell us something about your LomoHome’s name.

I always encounter problems with using my name. I used my nickname as my username so it’ll be easier for me to remember.

Share with us your most memorable experience in the Lomographic Community.

When I was chosen as the “Newcome of the Week.” It was really exciting!

Have you actually met people in the Community that you now consider as close friends? If yes, name at least one of them.

Actually, I don’t really have a lot of close friends but here are the lomographers I consider as such: pawathj, modern_nmt, dakadev_pui, and sobetion.

Do you think you’ll still be taking Lomographs in the next 5 years? Why?

I think I will! I love it already!

What is your favorite Lomo camera and why? Do you have any memorable experiences using this camera?

I love shooting with the LC-A. My photograph chosen as “Photo of the Week” was taken using an LC-A and I was just beginning to take pictures using it.

Please share with us your favorite Lomographic shot and explain why you love that particular image.

It is very difficult to select the best but here’s my lomograph that was chosen as “Photo of the Week." This made me want to shoot more.

Please share a Lomograph you wish you had taken and explain why.

I like this picture from hodachrome very much. He is my idol. He’s very inspiring.

What’s the best Lomographic or photography advice you think you have been given?

Don’t be too technical and just enjoy the sunshine.

If there’s one song or movie that best describes your Lomo life, which one is it and why?

What You Know by Two Door Cinema Club

Listening to it makes me feel good. It sets my mood to take really good pictures!

Is there any advice you can give to new analogue shooters?

Just love and enjoy taking pictures. Save lots of your money, buddies! You will need it!!
