Bio
I’m a 25 year old Lomography addict from sunny Worcestershire, UK.

What do you most love about the La Sardina?
The wide-angle lens has to be my favourite part of the La Sardina, coupled with its great looks and the subtle vignette you get on images it really is a little camera treat.

How would you describe La Sardina in five words?
Fun, Compact, Stylish, Candid, Wide-Angle.

The strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest Lomographic encounter that you have ever had?
All Lomographic encounters are great in my book but I did meet a lovely elderly man whilst shooting with the La Sardina. He caught me being rather vain and taking a picture of myself with the lovely little La Sardina in a street safety mirror outside work. I think he thought I’d lost my marbles. A quick explanation and a long chat later and I’d managed to convince him I was a top-secret Lomography spy, well, nearly. He had a great interest in film photography, an excellent explorer hat and as I type this I’m wondering why I didn’t ask him for a photo!

Your advice to future La Sardina shooters?
Experiment, shoot, shoot, shoot and get the most out of this exciting little camera. I found that Lomography CN100 works wonders with the wide-angle beauty on a sunny day. Get close, get crazy, get great results!
