Paint Your Camera

White - A symbol of purity and innocence, will become the motivation for your creativity.

Gift giving during Christmas and other occasions has become the norm all over the world. The act of gifting also conveys the thoughts of the giver. Everyone wants their gifts to be heartwarming, and also something creative that will touch the receiver.

It is very normal to buy a present and then to give it away. But if you infuse the gift with your heart and soul, then it will be a special, one and only gift! Let’s take a look at how a guy with a knack for drawing brainstorms a X-mas present for his girlfriend!

“I am Maomao, I like to draw. In order to give my girlfriend an unforgettable and unique gift, I thought of using my magic wand, which is my marker pens, to conjure up some magic! My girlfriend mentioned that she wanted to pick up photography. Hence, I thought of Lomography cameras as they are simple to operate and use. I started hunting for a suitable present on Lomography Online Shop. I began to look at white cameras. I found the elegant Lomo LC-A+ white , cute Fisheye 2 White edition , Princess like Diana F+ Edelweiss , diminutive Diana Mini White , gun shaped Colorsplash Camera

After considering that my girlfriend likes to hang out with a bunch of friends and is an extrovert, I selected Fisheye 2 White edition as my gift, and got down to work!"

Henceforth, it became an unique Fisheye 2, the only one in the world, behold the wonder of white cameras! They look ordinary but can be easily transformed into something special.

    It's a good idea. I think I'm going to strip my Mini down though and paint some of the white bits black. I just hope I can put it back together again!
