Tell the community a little bit about yourself.
I sing and play a synthesizer in FRONTIER BACKYARD.
Was this your first time to try Lomography’s camera??
I was not sure how to shoot at that time because it was my first time to use this camera, so I just had to wait for the film to be processed. However, it went well.
FRONTIER BACKYARD’s songs make me go to the gigs because most songs are up-tempo numbers. I’m sure you play at many places in Japan. If you shoot a picture with Lomography Spinner 360°, what would you like to shoot?
On a stage.
If your photos shown here could have a soundtrack of songs, what would they be (song title & artist please).FRONTIER BACKYARD / WONDERFUL WORLD
