Almost three years ago, Lamberto (flashstalker) let me use his Lomo LC-Wide, and I immediately fell in love with. I still owe him bigtime for letting me try and discover the camera.
Would you recommend the Lomo LC-Wide to other Lomographers? If yes, to whom do you have in mind?
I want suggest this camera to giovannidecarlo, because he always ask if he can borrow mine. I cannot live a day without my little baby so I never let him use it. He should buy his own!
When using the Lomo LC-Wide, what are you favourite subjects to photograph and why?
Myself. Yes my usual subject is myself. I enjoy taking selfies with the Lomo LC-Wide because it can make my arms look so much longer. I just love this kind of selfie. At the beginning of 2014, I started new project. I will take a selfie everyday and make a video out of them at the end of the year.
