Hello, tell us a bit about yourselves and your Lomographic journey.
I’m a student, studying graphic design. I love all sort of unique stuff. Well, 2 years ago, when I went to a photo lab to print out some photos, the Diana F+ grabbed my attention with its unique packaging. Without knowing it, I already grabbed it home before I really discovered how to work with it.

Are you part of any local community and since when you have been actively join this community?
Nope. I’m not part of any local community yet but I hope I’ll be able to join in the future.

So, do you enjoy shooting alone?
Yeah. I live on my own world when I’m carrying with my camera. I prefer went out for shooting alone. You can shoot anytime, anywhere you want and you need not to plan anything.

Are you born Johorian and which part of Johor do you stay?
I’m born Johorian and I stay in the busy city of Johor Bharu.

Tell us what do you love the most about Johor?
The food is the main thing that keeps me alive.

What is the food you love the most in Johor?
Wan Tan Mee. It’s the best.

Where would you bring your friend to go when they visit you at Johor?
Some old vintage street around city or a visit to the seaside!

Where do you develop your film at Johor? Do you have any other recommendation and what is the price and any other specific notes?
It’s very hard to find a shop who has the develop service, but after I surveyed, there are still some old camera shop which offers this service. The price is fair enough RM10 for develop the film for 35mm.

Show us your favorite photo in your collection and why?
This is my favorite among the bunch. It’s comes out very nice and totally unexpected. I have no idea how this photo come out during the shooting. It’s the best surprise I ever get from my Diana F+.

What is the definition of analogue lifestyle to you?
Shoot what you see, see how you want it to be seen.

Thanks for your time! Before we wrapped things up, do you mind to let us know which is your favorite Lomography gadget and why?
Of course Diana F+ and Lomo LC-Wide. Diana F+ is the camera that you really can’t imagine how the effect of the photo come out. While Lomo LC-Wide is the camera which you can bring everywhere you go, it’s easy to carry and the outcome of the photo is stunning.

The Diana F+ is a new twist on the ‘60s classic cult camera. Famous for its dreamy and soft-focused images, the Diana F+ is now packed with extra features such as panorama and pinhole capabilities. Available in our Online Shop.
