Newcomer of the Week: Djramsay

3

The bliss of not knowing anything is just one of the many things Daniel lives for. This could be also the reason why the use of film cameras is still relevant for him until this day. Get to know the whole story of how Lomography and its Community charmed him deep in his analogue soul!

Name: Daniel Ramsay
LomoHome: http://www.lomography.com/homes/djramsay
Location: Southampton England
Camera Shelf: Lomography Colorsplash, Sirius 4 x Action sampler, Lomography Gold POP 9, Lomography Oktomat, Lomography Fisheye 1, LomoKino, Disderi Robot 3, Ilford Sporti 6, Benson & Hedges wide pic panoramic, Minolta Weathermatic (untested), Holga WPC 120 and a Recesky DIY TLR. Oh and a LC-A with a shutter that wont fire :D

How did you find out about the Community and who/what convinced you to join?

I was browsing eBay and came across a white Fisheye # 1, bought it and googled Lomography then fell in love with the whole idea. I think I joined the Facebook page before becoming a Community member and uploading my first shots

Is there anyone in the Lomographic Society you look up to? If yes, who is him/her and why?

I think the whole Community; the support you get is amazing. Any problems I need help with I know will be inundated with great ideas and tips, so everyone that uses Shoutbox and of course to carrie27 my beautiful girlfriend ;)

As you have read the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography, what rule do you apply in your everyday life?

You don’t have to know beforehand!

In this digital age, why still film?

I was born in 1972 and we always had film cameras around, I just love not knowing. Do we remember the memories of childhood or are we remembering the photographs we grew up with?

Share your current favorite Lomograph (could be yours or a friend’s) and explain why it is your favorite.

This was one of her first photographs, it was taken outside my flat when we were first falling in love. It makes me smile every time I see it. I love it, and I’m on the other side of the camera for once!

Newbie, rookie, neophyte or whatever you call them, our new breed of the ever-growing band of Lomographers are set to conquer the analogue land with their brand new hip-shooting abilities! And this is where we feature them along with their wistful thoughts and the freshest snaps each week!

    Janne Parviainen: Light Magician

    Janne Parviainen is a 35-year-old artist from Helsinki, Finland. He is both a painter and a photographer but sometimes, he swaps his painting tools for light and creates illuminated pieces of art. Abandoned places are his favorite places for shoots because, according to him, "there's so much lived life and stories in abandoned places, they are the lost diaries and photos turned to dust of lives that once bloomed."
