Community LomoAmigo Susielomovitz And Her LomoKino First Hand Privilege

5

For some, the LomoKino seems like another toy camera that is bound to break and be forgotten in the next couple of years.

But this is definitely false for this week’s LomoKino LomoAmigo, Susie, or more known as susielomovitz in our Community as she talks about her movies and true adoration for the glorious analogue movie maker.

Read on our interview with her as she tells us her first hand privilege in using the LomoKino and what other analogue adventures she currently has in mind.

Location: Madrid, Spain

Tell us about yourself. What do you do for a living? What are your interests?

What I do for a living? That’s usually boring, that’s why you get paid for that. I prefer to talk about what I do for pleasure — like taking photos, going out with friends, have lovely dinners with my boyfriend, go to the movies, some exhibitions, walks… And my interests? Analogue photography, graphic design, interior design, “general” design, art, gastronomy (eating, not cooking), fashion and having fun! I would love to dance, even if I’m not good at it, but I don’t dance (yet).

How long have you been a Lomographer and how did you find out about the Community?

Three years, I think? I have a very very bad memory and I’m really bad with time. Two and a half? Mmm… I really don’t know (blush).

Describe the LomoKino in five words.

Action. Movement. Silence. Expression. Half-minute.

How did you like shooting with the LomoKino?

I just love shooting with the LomoKino! I love the fact that you have to spin the crank fast while shooting. I think that makes you get very involved in the action. And the no-audio thing… Perfect!

What or who has inspired you to purchase and use the LomoKino?

I had the honor of being one of the testers so Lomography sent me my beloved LomoKino! I did some test movies and after that I have thought of many Kino projects. One of them is done, the Lomo Christmas Eve, which I think is the biggest LomoKino movie I’ve done until now.

Any funny or strange encounters you’ve had with it?

The first impression of my Uncle when he saw the camera was: "That’s stupid“ (and he likes analogue) but when he saw the movie I did with her daughter and a friend of her, The Sad Story of Princess Inés, he gazed open-mouthed! And now he is really interested in what I do with my “stupid” yet amazing camera!

If you could shoot any person alive or dead (or imaginary) with your LomoKino, who would it be and why?

Once I said Marcel Marceau, who I still would loooove to shoot. But Elvis… Elvis Presley… Wow!

Kindly share to us any LomoKino movie you love the most.

Since I saw Sun Dance, just after the Lomokino launch, by nadinadu, I always talk about that movie like a reference of what a brilliant Lomographer can do with the LomoKino. I really like that movie. It’s so beautiful.

Any future plans with your LomoKino? More shoots or a full-length film perhaps?

Oh yes! I have a big funny plan, but it’s a secret! A big funny plan my friends!

Your advice to future LomoKino users.

HAVE FUN and work on the "idea”. Do not concern much about the technical aspects, focus on the idea, what you want to tell and how you are going to tell it.

Others consider it a trusty, go-to camera despite having a massive camera collection which sometimes include some of the best gear there is.

About a year ago, she sought to document her memories for her journal but didn't want to do so digitally, and got her first Lomography camera. Next thing she knew, she had a trove of instant cameras, as well as a knack for instant photography.

    Trusty Bags for Trusty Cameras

    We spend copious amounts of time stalking camera forums and researching specifications that "hunter" seems a more fitting term than "collector." And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.

    Camera Collections: theonlydrp's Vintage and Handmade Gear

    Some lomographers prefer to hoard as many analog cameras their shelves and budgets can support. Some would rather keep a manageable number that they can regularly shoot with. Community member Joshua Kennedy belongs to the latter group. From 40 cameras, he downsized his collection to 13, as he puts it, "really good ones" that suit his shooting habits and style. In this interview, he breaks down his small yet dependable arsenal of vintage and handmade cameras and how an organized schedule allows him to shoot with each one on a regular basis.

    Gommorah Girl: An Interview with Valerio Spada

    Valerio Spada went beyond his comfort zone and stepped right into the battlefield with his camera. He went to Naples, Italy, an area populated by the Camorra Mafia but also home to Annalisa Durante who, at the age of 14, was killed by a bullet aimed at a Camorra boss. What happened to her could've happened to any of the girls portrayed in the book Gommorah Girl. This work is about Annalisa. It's about all of the girls that, just like her, seem doomed to an unfair destiny - which, hopefully, may still change.

    Five Days, Four Kinds of Film and Three Cameras on the French Riviera

    It had been five years since my last visit to the Côte d'Azur in France. During this period, I took to film photography again. And so for my return, I was looking forward to capturing, with my handy film cameras, some of that special light and blue sea that had drawn so many artists to the Riviera.
