My Lomo LC-A Story: It's Part of My Life

Hello Lomographer! Let me tell you my LomoStory with my LC-A. How do I start, why and who brought me into this world?

Back in 2008, I met a great friend named, Shammy, her passion was Lomography. It was the first time she snapped my pictures using her Fisheye and Lomolitos cameras. At first, I was wondering what exactly is a Lomography camera? Apparently, the camera looks like a toy. So then she introduced me to Eastmoe, my current-so-called sifu.

During that time I was still studying in UK and we only had a chance to keep in touch through IM. After a long thought, I bought Fisheye2, my first lomo camera on May 2009. After a year had passed, I had added another collection of cameras; UWS and Lomolitos.

But then, in April 2010, one of my friends lends me his LC-A and I fell in love with it. The effects and the colors made me want to buy one. So, I decided to grab LC-A on September 2010 from Russia. To make it more attractive with striking appearance, I asked Eastmoe to repaint my Lomo LC-A.

Now, LC-A is my most favourite camera that I would bring wherever I go for traveling, walking, events and hanging out with friends because the size is very small, light, handy and fits in your handbag.

I remember when I was in Brussels; the shutter was suddenly stuck and can hardly use it anymore during the whole vacation. It totally drained my mood to zero. However, a truckload thanks to Roger Lean for helping me fix it.

The LC-A produces a very stunning picture that catches my eyes and makes me deeply in love with it. Through LC-A, I can express my feelings and share the happiness amd sadness that could portray a thousand different impressions. It is part of my life. Without it, my life would be so boring.

The Lomo LC-A+ RL has all the features we know and love, authentic Russian lens, and a back that’s now interchangeable with the Instant Back+. Explore analogue possibilities with the LC-A+ RL!
