Newcomer of the Week: Pixiecloud


Despite the unpredictable nature of doing multiple exposures on film, it’s never a waste for her even if there are only a few frames that came out good. This is actually what fascinates her with analogue photography – it’s not how much number of pictures you can take, rather, how you value the snaps you took!

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

I found when I was researching analogue photography. I just finished my first roll and wanted some feedback. Also I liked the idea of sharing ideas and experiences with the other users. And I like to look at nice photos!

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

I could name more than one. But ginnys has helped me several times with some questions I had and her photos are pretty amazing too.

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 what you captured on film” __

I make a lot of double exposures, but never know what the two photos together will give. Sometimes one of them totally disappears, but that’s also the fun of it!

In this digital age, why still film?

I love it that analogue photos still surprise you every time, even though you made them yourself. I also love the moment you make the shot and the feeling at that moment. I think analogue photography gives every shot more value. You are not just snapping around like with a digital camera.

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