singleelderly is a self-confessed quiet Lomographer who prefers his photos do all the talking. With a Lomo LC-Wide we bet his gallery's got a lot of talking to do!
Age: Um…not old enough to retire…
City and Country: Taipei, Taiwan
A person that doesn’t speak at all yet speaks with photos.
What do you most love about the LC-Wide ?
Close-ups of up to 0.4m. It gives some really funny distortion and the object is always in focus (e.g. lovely cats!)
Describe the LC-Wide in five words:
Handy, Snap-friendly, Holistic, Travelling (Best for Landscapes) and Reliable
What’s the strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest Lomographic encounter that you’ve ever had?
I love to take photos of cats with the LC-Wide!
Well, something memorable… I walk alone with this camera a lot, even taking holidays to go and shoot (Crazy!) I visited an old village on a sunny weekday. The residents there talked with me cheerfully and showed me some great photographic spots. It’s an enjoyable journey.
Your advice to future LC-Wide shooters?
The viewfinder covers only about 80% of the real image, so go even closer to the object if possible. Also pay attention to horizon level. It’s easy to get noticeably tilted horizon because it is just so wide! Or…. just forget everything, ignore the viewfinder and have fun with your LC-Wide!
