Nicole Bogatitus AKA Nicolelynn shoots with the Lomo LC-A+

2009-08-10

She’s so protective with her Lomo LC-A+ that she even have to keep it inside a sock, now that’s Lomo love! Take a look at how our amiga Nicolelynn spills some facts of her analogue life in this interview.

[INTRO]

REAL NAME Nicole Bogatitus
CITY Brooklyn
COUNTRY USA

How long have you been a Lomographer?
NB: I’m going on my third year working for Lomo USA, but I bought my first LCA around 2001.

Describe the LC-A+ in five words.
NB: Sleek, simple, workhorse, surprising, envy-inspiring.

The strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest photographic/Lomographic encounter that you have ever had.
NB: My single most favorite line is: “That’s a FILM camera? They still make those?” I don’t have a specific instance, but I love the reactions the cameras cause; anywhere from disbelief (“What the heck is that?” to my attaching the ColorSplash Flash) to friendly recognition from those who know Lomography.

If your photos shown here could have a soundtrack of three songs, what would they be (song title & artist please).
NB:

  • The Microphones – Ice
  • Neutral Milk Hotel – Holland, 1945
  • Yo La Tengo – Autumn Sweater

Digital or Analog? Why?
NB: I like the convenience factor of digital, but there’s still nothing that comes close to an analog photograph. It’s an entirely different feel that technology can not yet reproduce.

If you could be anywhere, doing anything, right now – where would it be and what would you do?
NB: I would love to travel Europe by train. If I had to pick right now I think I would say bicycling through Amsterdam.

The absolute best restaurant in your town – something authentic, delicious, and not too pricey. Name & address please.
NB: The neighborhood that I live in, Fort Greene in Brooklyn, has a ton of great restaurants, but my favorite would have to be Red Bamboo. It’s a vegetarian place that has the most realistic & delicious fake-meat I’ve ever tasted. Even my strictly-carnivorous friends swear by it.

271 Adelphi St @ Dekalb, Brooklyn NY – www.redbamboobrooklyn.com

Things about the LC-A+ that you love & adore.
NB: It’s always ready, it’s always with me thanks to its small size, and you can still always spot a photograph that comes from the LOMO LC-A+ camera because they’re so distinct and unique.

Your advice to future LC-A+ Lomographers.
NB: Don’t be afraid to shoot! Even if you are unfamiliar with the camera you are shooting with, some of your worst mistakes can come out as your greatest photos. Also, be kind to your camera. I always carry mine in something protective, even if it means I have to carry it around in a sock! Spread the word and get your friends involved; the more the merrier.

    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.
