LomoAge: 2 years

Hello! Tell us a bit about yourself.
This is a very tough question because there is nothing much to talk about! But my friends do say that I’m a very talkative man. Perhaps, I love to share my thoughts with others.

How many Lomography cameras do you have in your collection?
15. Soon to be 14 because I’m going to give my Holga 135BC to my cousin.

We’re sure it’s hard to pick one, but which Lomography camera is your all time favourite? And which camera is on your wishlist right now?
Although I bring my LC-A+ with me almost everyday, when come to my favourite, Spinner 360° will still be the one! It is the best camera to make friends (the unusual looks that grab all the attention), the best camera show everyone the capability of films (true 360° image without digital stitching) and the camera that have most fun to play with! My wishlist? Of course, the Spinner 360° Motorizer!

Please share with us your top 3 favourite shots (taken by yourself of course) ever, and tell us a bit about each photo.

This is my lovely nephew and I captured this moment on my birthday party, Chocolate cake is his favourite. Just look at his face!
I stood there for an agonizing 5 minutes, carefully measuring the light with my light meter. All my movements had to be very slow, so that the cat won’t be scared away.
Thanks to the expired slide film, I can make the mundane look unreal and dreamlike.

What do you like about the Lomography community?
What can better than a group of people get together sharing on the stuff they love the most?

As a Lomography Singapore Community Star, do you want to share any advice or tips for Lomographers out there?
Don’t worry too much about the critics, comments or how many “likes” your photographs get. You shoot photographs to please yourselves, not others. Just follow your gut feeling and let your heart lead your way.
