LomoGuru of the Week: Superkulisap

This week's LomoGuru might just be the perfect example of a Lomography Community member.

Ask me why? For this LomoGuru sure is a friendly one! With hundreds of friends in his LomoHome and a huge bunch of Lomographic friends offline, superkulisap sure has been spreading the analogue love! Don’t forget the terrific Lomographs he has been sharing for more than two years!

Come and know more about our LomoGuru from the Philippines and read about fine Lomographic tips. Happy holidays, everyone!

Name: Ivan Diaz
Lomography Username: superkulisap
Location: Makati, Philippines
Number of years as a Lomographer: Almost 3 years
Number of years in the Community: More than 2 years

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

Everything that has happened to me here in this wonderful Community is just memorable. But to cite some specifics, here are some; whenever I win cameras and Piggies from rumbles and whenever my photos become part of the Selected Photos section. When I was asked to answer a LomoDiary questionnaire: Travel, Meet, and Shoot with Superkulisap and His LomoDiary, and the last one is this LomoGuru thing. I didn’t really expect that you guys will pick me as a LomoGuru, this is such an honor. Thank you!

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

As one of the founding members of Shutter Revolution and an active member of Lomomanila, I was able to attend more than a handful LomoWalks and other film related projects. I think I met almost 80% of the most active local Lomographers here in the country.

I have made a lot of good friends in this community and I even have drinking sessions with them. If ‘closeness’ will be defined as the number of times people meet, icuresick and projectsnap will be on top of my list. My other LSI friends that I usually do meet ups with are renenob, boobert, feelux, walasiteodito b0rn2b1ush, cosmicpinay80, ponzi, morty, jerisprudence, bogssilverio, and skyphos.

I also would love to meet these ladies if given a chance grazie, atria007, 134340, warning, eva_eva, and blueskyandhardrock — I think they’re really awesome! And of course these guys too dakadev_pui, sobetion, adi_totp, vicuna, superlighter and hodachrome. They inspire me to shoot like a crazy person.

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

Out of all the questions in this questionnaire, this one’s my favourite! Haha! Of course I will still shoot Lomo in the next five years. Not even my Mom can stop me from shooting film. Why? It may sound like a cliché to you but shooting Lomo is more than just a hobby or a past time, it’s more of a lifestyle to me. If I don’t shoot film, I’ll feel like I’m Super Mario without a mushroom.

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

This one’s tough. I like panoramas as much as I like multiple exposures. I like to use my finger as a splitzer as much as I like hearing the sound of a panning lens. I’m torn between the Horizon Kompakt and the LC-A+. These two buddies have brought my LomoHome a lot of likes from the Selected Photos section. But if I’m only to choose one, I will pick my LC-A+.

Please share your most favourite Lomographic photo that you took and explain why.

I honestly don’t know why this one’s my favorite. Imagine a teddy bear that just show up in the middle of nowhere and destroy your city? Isn’t that just absurd? Haha!

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

I think the previous LomoGurus pretty much covered every advice I can possibly think of. Haha! But let me share you what I do personally to improve my shots: I seek advice and criticism from my colleagues, I always check the Tipster section, I always drop by the Selected Photos section and learn from others’ works. I update myself if there are any rumbles I can join through the Competition section, I post my shots even if I think they’re bad, I study my camera and push it to its limit, I shoot the same subject in different perspectives, I follow Rule #1 and #3 of the Golden Rules of Lomography, and most of all, I think before I shoot.

Do you think you’re qualified as a LomoGuru? Got something to share in our Community? Then drop me a line at qne become the next LomoGuru!
