Tell us something about yourself.
Me? Polka dots, self-portraits, sunshine, traveling and meeting up with lotsa friends! I like to do things spontaneously and enjoy the freedom in life. Well, basically I don’t like to think too much, and let the future unfolds by itself. Lomography, teaches me to let it go, and don’t worry about any rules. Obviously we have so much in common, we clicked and it’s now become something very important in my life.
How many Lomographic cameras do you have in your collection?
I have LC-A, Fisheye 2, Sprocket Rocket, La Sardina, Diana F+, Diana mini, Spinner 360, Holga 120N, Lomokino, Action Sampler Transparent, Action Sampler Flash, Pop9, Lubitel 166B, and LC-Wide.
Since you are a film camera fanatic, why LC-Wide is your favorite among all?
LC-A is my best buddy, and always will be, while LC-Wide is my new lover. LC-Wide's lens is wide enough for my own self-portraits or when I hang out with a bunch of good buddies. Then it’s compact enough for me to put into my small handbags. There is MX (multiple exposure) feature and able to shoot with 3 different formats! Besides, you could enjoy the instant lomographic moments if you get the instant back for LC-Wide as well! It’s like a ALL-in-ONE must-have camera!
Describe the LC-Wide in 5 words.
“OMG, it’s so damn WIDE!”
Which of your own Lomographic shot taken by LC-Wide is your favorite and why?
My favorite shot would be the picture where there is this uncle walking across the street at Kuala Lumpur. I did not actually view the viewfinder while taking this picture, and I like it somehow it turn the way I wanted it to be! As if my LC-Wide listened to my heart and know what I want and gives me the outcome that I wish for. He is my sweetest lover ever ;).
