Hello there! Welcome to another edition of Lomography’s Staff Picks. Today we’ll get to know Michelle, one of the dedicated members of the Online Shop team. She helps keep the shop running on a daily basis, but let’s see which Lomography goodies she runs to when in need of an analogue fix.
Name: Michelle E.
What you do at Lomography: I’m an Online Shop Administrator, so if you visit the shop often, chances are you’ve seen what I work on on a daily basis.
Interests: Movies that make me think, music ranging from Tchaikovsky to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, books by authors such as Chuck Palahniuk and Haruki Murakami, and baking! I’m trying out as many recipes as I can find, and hopefully I’ll get to post pictures of what I made in my LomoHome.
Which Lomography product would you recommend to readers? The wondrously wide-angle La Sardina
The La Sardina is incredibly easy to use. You can shoot long exposure shots as well as multiple exposure ones. And thanks to its wide-angle lens, every photo looks very scenic.
Please attach a picture of yourself taken with a Lomography camera or Lomography film and tell us something about this picture.
Taken with the La Sardina in my bedroom at low light. I always hated having bright lights in my room which makes my photos look too saturated, so I got a lighter and used that to take my own photo. And here’s what I made!
Your message to Lomographers:
Don’t be afraid to take your camera out at random moments because those moments are what make a great picture. And it doesn’t matter if you end up being the photographer when you’re out with your friends because the person behind the lens is as much a part of the picture as the people in front of it!
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us, Michelle! We hope you inpire many community members to take their cameras out and shoot! :)
