Diana F+ Qing Hua

How did you meet each other? Was it because of Lomography?
We met in the Diana Workshop, which was organized by the Japanese photo magazine called “snap!”. I enjoyed spending time with my friends that I met through this workshop and started to go out with him. Lomography brought us together!

Any interesting Lomography moment that happened between you two?
Diana Multi Pinhole Operator is one of my favorite cameras. He spends time with me when I use it. I feel so relaxed because time goes so slow. Sometimes too relaxed until I realize that it’s already nighttime!

What kind of Lomographic goodies will you buy for your boy-friend / girl-friend? And why?
He already has a lot of cameras.. so maybe the DigitaLIZA? I want him to scan my films! :)

Have you ever got Lomography products as present? If you have, please tell us!
I got the Diana F+ Qing Hua in the last White day. The design is so cute! When I got this present, I was sick with a nasty cold, but the next day I felt better because of this present! Not because of the medicine!

Sea! southern land!

Any message for other Lomographers?
Cameras became a part of my life, because of Lomography. I am really happy to connect with many Lomographers, and I will never part with my Lomography cameras even when I get old. Viva la Lomography!

    LomoAmigo: Cat Stevens

    London based photographer Cat Stevens uses the softer, more subtle aesthetics of film photography throughout her work. Her shoots consist of the familiar light leaks and washed out tones that most film shooters will be familiar with. She has photographed artists such as Deerhunter, PJ Harvey and recently took a series of sun drenched beach shots which adorned The Charlatans' last album cover titled "Modern Nature."
