How did you find out about the Community and who/what convinced you to join?
I was at vacation and I met a girl who had a Fisheye, she told me about Lomo and when I went back home I started looking for my camera. I love my Diana Mini now.
Is there anyone in the Lomographic Society you look up to? If yes, who is him/her and why?
Yes, amaki15 because I love all the pictures, they have some magic, exactly what I’m looking for in mine (photos). But also, all the pictures in the Community are great because they open my mind and you can learn from everyone!
As you have read the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography, what rule do you apply in your everyday life?
Rule number 3!
In this digital age, why still film?
Because I love the texture, the surprise of double exposure, the magic of not knowing how the picture will be and because I’m a nostalgic ;)
Share your current favorite Lomograph (could be yours or a friend’s) and explain why it is your favorite.
I will say that all of the double exposed Lomographs! They create a fantastic surrealist world!
