5 Questions on Analogue Photography with adi_totp‏

It is adi_totp's turn to answer the analogue lifestyle questions. From 2007, he started to use Lomography cameras and kept busy on his LomoHome that same year. Find out more about him!

Name: Adi
Occupation: Post Graduate Student (Master Degree in Integrated Microfinance Management)
Country: Indonesia
City: Bandung

1. Tell us about yourself.
Hello my name is Adi. I just got back home from a great trip. It really made me feel great, and grateful to live in Indonesia. Indonesia is so big! I’ve been a Post Graduate student since July so traveling around Indonesia is something good. Of course I brought my Lomography cameras. Oh yeah I have a LomoHome. Check it out!

2. Why do you still shoot analogue?
I grew up seeing my father with his SLR which is Canon AE-1. He took his trusty camera everywhere with him. During his field trip, his research, or during holiday with his family. Because of that, no wonder I look up from my father and made me who I am today. A boy who took his camera everywhere he went. No surprise eh? I guess that answers the question!

3. What photographic equipment (cameras, films, and accessories) do you usually have in your bag?
LOMO LC-A+ RL! I always and usually have in my bag. Since I have the Lomo LC-A+ RL since 2008, my life is documented through this magical camera. Whooooaaa… I usually put any kind of film to my Lomo LC-A+ RL, and the Colorsplash Flash is the perfect accessory for it. I bring my Lomo LC-A+ RL with me everyday, Yes! Everyday. Believe it or not.

4. Share a trick of yours that will always result to a great photo.
To be honest, I don’t know any tricks! I just click click click! But I remember that famous quote from Robert Capa: “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough” Yes! Get Close! Don’t think! Let your mind and heart communicate with the camera. If you enjoy it, you don’t have to look through the viewfinder! Just Let Loose and enjoy shooting! Yeah, If it feels good, DO IT!

5. Name photographers who influence your work?
My Father. He influenced me a lot. He’s my mentor, he’s my analogue guru, he taught me analogue photography, He taught me how to put a film in the camera and he is my father. What more can I expect? Until this day, he still gives me advice about analogue photography and encourage me to write something. To write a story behind every photograph I took and I’m up for that challenge. Thank you, Father!

6. Any advice for newbie out there?
Yes! I have! Enjoy your camera and shoot everything you like! EVEYRTHING YOU LIKE! Just let loose and don’t think too much! Let’s have some FUN FUN FUN with Lomography! Don’t forget to share it on Lomography.com! SHARING IS CARING. Share the analogue love. After all, the future is analogue!
Oh yeah one more, I remember this quote from Paul Arden “It’s Not How Good You Are, Its How Good You Want to Be.” Yes, it motivates me through bad times and good times.

I answer these questions while listening to The Naked And Famous. GREAT BAND!

Terima Kasih
Love From Bandung,

Adi
