Tell us more about yourself.
I’m a humanitarian aid worker. I’ve been on humanitarian missions in D.R.Congo, Central African Republic, and more recently to Syria, where I worked as program coordinator for an international NGO. Now, I’m back in France trying to enjoy a normal life for a while. I’ve been catching up with family and friends, with sleep, and of course with Lomography!
Why is the Lomography XPro Slide 200 your Weapon of Choice?
This film is just great. You can use it in all weather and light conditions. This film is perfect for all situations, and works well with all cameras. It will never deceive you. I love the cross-processed effects it gives – ranging from golden tones on sunny days to dramatic greenish effect in low light conditions.
Any memorable experiences you’ve had while using the Lomography XPro Slide 200?
Every time I discover the results of the roll I shot is a memorable experience!
Would you recommend the Lomography XPro Slide 200 to other Lomographers? If yes, to whom do you have in mind?
Definitely! All Lomographers should try it! In particular, I will recommend it to my boyfriend eliasmaxihanna who recently joined the Community. He owns a Konstruktor, which was a Christmas present from me! A few rolls of the Lomography XPro Slide 200 will definitely be in both our suitcases for our upcoming trips!
When using the Lomography XPro Slide 200, what are you favorite subjects to photograph and why?
I don’t really have a favorite subject, I just love to experiment with all kinds of subjects, with all the cameras I own, in different light conditions and settings to discover the various effects it can produce.
Any tips or tricks with using the Lomography XPro Slide 200?
Nothing in particular but I would just advise anyone to have fun with it – day, night, rain, sun, with all cameras they own! Also, I think I will soon follow the tip I was given at the Lomography store the other day and try to develop the film in E6 for once.
