Which Lomography product would you recommend to readers?
Lomo LC-A+ for every day and the Diana F+ for dreamy days!
I’ve had an LC-A, for almost 10 years and it never leaves my purse (unless it’s taking photos of course!). It’s hands down my favourite camera and I really can’t live without it! As for the Diana F+, it’s my favourite for sunny BBQs, trips to the beach and shopping. It makes everything seem so dream-like!
Attached is a picture taken with a Lomography camera or Lomography film:
(Note: Alexandra has been gracious enough to give us two lovely photos!)
Photo 1: This was taken at a birthday party, and I’m wearing my favourite coat. One of my favourite images, I look both crazy/mad and super cute!
Photo 2: This photo was taken by Liad Cohen, outside of the Lomography Gallery Store on West 8th Street here in NYC. He has a knack for making me look “cool”!
