Newcomer of the Week: Af-capture

4

His interest with ‘real photography’ is what actually attracted him to Lomography in the first place. Along with the talented Community, he aspires himself on pushing the limits of his imagination and never to allow himself to be bound with the ordinary.

Camera Shelf: Pentax K1000, Lubitel Universal 166, LOMO LC-A+, Nikon N70, Holga 120, Holga 120WPC

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

I was searching for film reviews and I found myself reading an article at lomography.com. Then, I realized that film photography is very alive and that there are a lot of people with a passion for “real” photography. The desire to join the Community was natural.

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

I just joined the society, so far I am very pleased to see some very amazing work from a lot of people. It seems that everybody is trying to push her/his imagination to the limit. Nevertheless, I really like upic's work. She is extremely sensible to predicting, in a magical and simplistic way, the “right moments” through the lens. She also loves traveling which is, along with photography, one of my greatest passions.

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

“Use it any time – day and night”…. Any time… Any day is good for Lomography!

In this digital age, why still film?

I feel that with film, there is a more intimate relation between the subject matter and yourself. The element of unpredictability is extremely special with an endless potential for experimenting!

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

Pentax K1000. “… Simplicity is the K1000’s greatest strength. All the irrelevant foolishness that chokes fancier cameras, and especially digital cameras, never gets in the way of a great picture…”

His photography and videography take us deep into the never-ending nights of Harlem, a place where the darkness might seem to reach its peak.

    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.

    Aside from being an immensely talented lomographer, what makes him a perfect LomoGuru is his burning desire to share his knowledge. The city where he lives is full of people who are interested in analog photography, but the lack of easy access to film and equipment poses a challenge for them to pursue their passion. To keep them motivated, Hugo organizes workshops and tours on different film photography techniques and DIY tricks. Let's give a loud round of applause to Hugo Pereira, better known in the community as zulupt, our LomoGuru from Marinha Grande, Portugal!
