Valentine Special: Lomography Valentine Couple Interview Part 2

1

For our second couple, we introduce you to Lomographers jeansman and shanti929! With Lomography as their common hobby, their dates are probably always fun and exciting

Username: shanti929
LomoHome: http://www.lomography.jp/homes/shanti929
Courtship: Around 5 years maybe?

What is his/ her favorite camera?
Lomo LC-A+

Your favorite camera?
Lomo LC-A+

How did you two meet?
At the time I met sha, were were both Lomographers already. We met when a mutual friend invited me to a Lomography event.

Any interesting Lomography moment that happened between you two?
My boyfriend (actually more of a husband!) is not romantic. He never gave me anything special, so I cannot remember being impressed much. Until it was my birthday a year ago, and we did a special celebration. He did not bring flowers or presents, but he was gone for a bit and I found something in the pocket of my jeans. Looking at the backseat inside of the car was a parking ticket. I got a little disappointed but when I flipped it over to look at the back, it said, “Dear shanti, Happy Birthday. I love you” which he had written.

Which Lomography product would you like to give as a present and why?
Horizon Perfekt maybe? He has broken his Horizon 202. It’s the only Lomography camera that he does not have.

If you had a choice to go out with each other and travel with a camera, where would you go? Which scenes would you like to take a picture of?
Location is not important for the both of us. The park, the street, anywhere … as long as we are taking pictures of whatever that catches our attention.

Finally, a message to all Lomographers!
Enjoy the freedom of taking pictures with no rules.

Courtship: from 2005

What is his/ her favorite camera?
The Lomo LC-A+ think that suits her best. She does not care about the technical cameras, and the LC-A+ is simple to use.

Your favorite camera?
The Lomo LC-A+ – I always use the automatic exposure meter.

How did you two meet?
We met in 2005 at a Lomography event. Back then she was just a Lomographers rookie.

Any interesting Lomography moment that happened between you two?
May 21 was a special day in 2005. It was the day when we met in the Lomography event, and the Lomography Gallery Store in Taiwan also opened the same day. It’s a great coincidence!

Which Lomography product would you like to give as a present and why?
The Lubitel 166+ is very elegant, I’m sure she’ll enjoy shooting it. It can use 120 and 35mm film, and you can take great pictures with the beautiful lens.

If you had a choice to go out with each other and travel with a camera, where would you go? Which scenes would you like to take a picture of?
Iceland. Volcanoes, glaciers, colorful houses. It’s the most beautiful place in the world.

Finally, a message to all Lomographers!
Be positive! Grab your Lomography camera and enjoy life! You’ll take a lot of wonderful photos!
