Guidelines for "My Friend ________"

What is "My Friend _______"? How is it different from "Behind the Scenes"? Actually, they're very similar, but "My Friend ______" is where **YOU** get to choose a friend from the Lomography community and interview them!

What is “My Friend _______”? How is it different from “Behind the Scenes”? Actually, they’re very similar, but “My Friend ______” is where YOU get to choose a friend from the Lomography community and interview them!

How does it work?

  • Since I started things off with Fookshit, he’ll pick a friend from the community to ask questions to.
  • Fookshit is then given 10 days to -
    • send his questions to chosen friend
    • collect answers, as well as 15 photos, from chosen friend
    • e-mail everything to sunshine.reyes@lomography.com
  • I’ll post the Q&A on the blog. Fookshit’s friend, in turn, will then pick a friend from the community to interview … and the cycle goes on and on!

Just a few important reminders

  • Prepare 5 to 10 questions, mostly about photography or interesting trivia. No invasive or offensive questions, please. No too-personal questions – this covers inquiries regarding personal beliefs in religion, race, politics, sexuality, etc. We trust you on this one, okay? :)
  • Interviewees, prepare 10-15 photos only – at least 768px in width or height.
  • Interviewers are given 10 DAYS to do everything – from doing the interview to sending the collected answers & photos to sunshine.reyes@lomography.com

    Useful Guidelines on Shooting with Ultra Wide Lenses

    Wide-angle lens are further divided into sub-classifications: Wide, ultra-wide and ultra-ultra-wide. Based on current standards, wide lenses for 35mm cameras are those with focal lengths ranging from 24 to 35mm. Lenses are considered ultra-wide if they have focal lengths from 17 to 21 mm, and ultra-ultra-wide if from 12 to 16mm. The New Russar+ is a 20mm lens; hence it falls under the ultra-wide classification. If you have an ultra-wide lens or if you intend to get the Russar+, you might as well make the most out of your precious investment. Read on for a few guidelines on shooting with ultra-wide lenses.

    Film Manipulation: Kodak Slides and Bleach

    I want to share with you my experience with some slides when I was in Russia. I'm very sorry for them because I messed them up. They're just ruined and they'll never be the same! But hey, I have thousands of them, so I guess it's not a big deal after all.

    Elitechrome 400 EL: Absolutely Retro

    The entire Kodak Elitechrome series belong to my favorite films. From the EB, to the EBX, ED, and EL; they all have great features once you know how to use them well. The EL with its 400 ISO hardly gets any attention, which is also because of the fact that it is more uncommon. But that is about to change with this. Here's some e-love.

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

    My Analogue Alphabet

    The alphabet is composed of letters that form words when they're put together. But I've given a different meaning to the alphabet by creating an analogue alphabet. I'm sure you'd have other words to represent these letters, but these are the ones I've chosen. Which one do you think is my favorite?
