Hello, tell us a bit about yourself and your Lomographic journey.

Hello! I’m funfun from Kuantan, Pahang. I’m an ordinary girl who loves traveling and taking photographs. Last year, I had a chance to try out a Lomographic camera, and I love the outcome of the pictures. My Lomographic journey really started when I got my own camera.

And how did you come across the products of Lomography / Lomography for the first time?

Through my boyfriend.

What the best part shooting with a bunch of Lomography enthusiasts?

Get to share ideas and learn new techniques with one another.

And the worst?

Hmm… time limitations?

Do you enjoy shooting alone or do you prefer shooting together with the community?

Most of the time I shoot with my boyfriend. I do shoot alone too when he’s not around.
