If he’s not busy doing anything from his dayjob, he usually picks up his analogue film cameras – more specially the Supersampler – for some snap-action under the sun! So what exactly draws him on Lomography and using film these days? A lot. Get to know more about our Newcomer of the Week Naksone on this interview!
Name: Nick Jackson
Location: Munich, Germany
Camera Shelf Canon AE-1, Lomo Supersampler, Porst 135L, Porst Auto 504, about 10 different Polaroid Cameras and a Nizo 6080 Super 8 camera.
How did you find out about the Community and who/what convinced you to join?
I heard of the whole Lomography scene and did some research on the interweb and came across Lomography.com and bought a camera from there but didn’t realize it was a photo sharing Community until just recently.
Is there anyone in the Lomographic Society you look up to? If yes, who is him/her and why?
Not really, I just like to browse random photos and see what catches my eye. There are always lots of interesting and quality shots to get inspired by.
As you have read the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography, what rule do you apply in your everyday life?
Take your camera everywhere you go.
In this digital age, why still film?
Film has this appealing and surreal look to me. It looks better than real life. I also love the anticipation of getting the negatives back.
Share your current favorite Lomograph (could be yours or a friend’s) and explain why it is your favorite.
This is one of mine that I really like, because I know the light was looking good at this time and it combined with the architecture but looked even better when I got the shot back. To me it kind of looks like close encounter with an Alien.
Newbie, rookie, neophyte or whatever you call them, our new breed of the ever-growing band of Lomographers are set to conquer the analogue land with their brand new hip-shooting abilities! And this is where we feature them along with their wistful thoughts and the freshest snaps each week!
