Share to us your most memorable experience in the Lomographic Community:

I’m quite impressed that many Lomographers visit my Lomohome and like my pictures far more than I expected. The experience in this Community is not much yet but I look forward to more wonderful ones.

Have you actually met people in the Community that you now consider as close friends? If yes, name at least one of them.

Not yet. I hope I will have the opportunity to meet other Lomographers in future.

Do you think you’ll still be taking Lomographs in the next 5 years? Why?

I can’t answer how long but I’d take pictures until a second before I die.

What is your favorite Lomo camera and why? Do you have any memorable experiences while using this camera?

Lomo LC-A. The biggest charm is its controllability of exposure. Pictures can be made as I adjust F-stops and ISO-modes. And I also love deep tasty tones, colours, and dynamic vignetting created by the LC-A. This is the best analog camera for me.

Most memorable experience is that an unexpected light-leak by LC-A has made Hell’s Angels, which is my representing work for this year. My Lomo-style might have evolved since then.

Is there any advice you can give to new analogue shooters?

Just shoot many. Unify with the nature. Use skills only a bit and be patient!

They are the ones whose passion transcends not only by what they do and say, but also with what they see and capture with their film cameras. And with such attributes aforementioned, they are what we call LomoGurus! Every week, we get to ask questions and reveal some insights with the most talented and productive of all Lomographers from the community!
