David Lindlbauer shooting with the Lomo LC-A+

Our third edition of Lomo "Intern" Amigos introduces you to David Lindlbauer, who once spent his summer as an intern at Lomography office in Vienna!

David is an Austrian student at the University of Applied Sciences in Hagenberg. His branch of study is Media technology and -design, where he is doing things like making movies, audiostuff, designing, programming and also photography (but only the digital stuff). When David comes home, he is enjoying the great analogue, Lomographic stuff in the company of his new Lomo LC-A+ .

REAL NAME David Lindlbauer
CITY Enns (Austria’s goddamn oldest and (most boring) town!)
COUNTRY Austria
SCHOOL University of Applied Siences Hagenberg, Mediatechnology and -design

How long have you been a Lomographer (or are you new to this whole thing)?
David Lindlbauer: I have bought my first Supersampler a few years ago, but didn’t shoot that much with it. But since my internship at Lomography Vienna, I’m shooting all the time and have shot about 30 films in 3 months. Just never miss a good shot!

Describe the LC-A+ in five words
DL: Handy, omnipresent, black, freaky and unique.

The strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest photographic/Lomographic encounter that you have ever had?
DL: I think one of the greatest things was going out with all the guys from the Lomo office in a small karaoke bar. There were a bunch of Korean guys singing and having fun. We have photographed them while singing and there came out some really great shots. And it was really funny.

If your photos shown here could have a soundtrack of three songs, what would they be (song title & artist please)?
DL:

  • Beatsteaks – Jane became Insane
  • Muse – Knights of Cydonia
  • The Doors – Light my Fire

You recently interned for Lomography’s Vienna office. Tell us a bit about the experience.
DL: It was great working with the guys (and girls) from Lomography, the work we’ve done were great and very educational. It was great doing some design works for Lomography, and seeing it nearly immediately on the Lomography website or in the newsletter. Also going out with the whole office people was always great fun and I’m looking forward to see them all again soon.

If you could be anywhere, doing anything, right now, where would it be and what would you do?
DL: I would be somewhere in the New Zealand on a nice, sunny beach having a good time, knowing that I will visit the country and make some awesome pictures with my Lomo LC-A+.

So tell us about your summer in Vienna. What are the best times you’d like to remember 60 years from now in your rocking chair?

DL: I think all the shooting with the different cameras and the whole going out, getting to know the city and all that kind of things will stay in my mind for the next 60 years.

The one person (living or deceased) who you would most like to photograph
DL: Oh my god, there are so many, all great musicians I like, the great actors. But one highlight would maybe be Jim Morrison, the Doors’ frontman. And when I think of it longer, him wearing some kind of Indian costume would be great.

What advice can you give to future Lomography interns?
Just do the work as best as you can. The people at the office are so great and the work is also cool, you will just have a good time.

Your advice to future LC-A+ shooters?
DL: Always take your camera with you and just shoot if you think the thing in front of your camera is worth it. Don’t hesitate to shoot in the night, put your LC-A+ on the floor and wait. If there is any kind of light, the pictures will look great.
