How long have you been a Lomographer?
Almost a year now
What’s in your kit bag?
Praktica BCA, Lomo Fisheye One, Polaroid 600 and various films. Sometimes an old flash and spare lens for the Praktica
In my own words….
I got into Lomography after getting into film photography in general. I was researching buying film for my old Polaroid and suddenly the world of Lomo was opened up to me! And it’s been stealing my money ever since! I love how every photo counts and even if doesn’t work out how you planned it that’s the fun about it.
I’m active in the community mainly out of sheer noseyness. I love seeing what other people do, and into their lives. So curiosity is one of the things which drive me to interact.
I would love to do film swaps with people, and learn to develop my own film so I could do medium format photography too.
My last project was Project 365 where I took a picture of myself and a random picture every day for a year. It was pretty intense so I’m taking time off from projects before I start on another one. Maybe 50×50×50 where you take 50 shots with a 50mm in 50 days, or “The first thing I ate today”, possibly 100 Strangers which is literally that. As you can see I have loads of ideas so I’m giving myself some time off now!
