Newcomer of the Week: Spitfiretheone

After a few clicks and miss with his Lomo camera, It took him a while to muster enough bravery to finally join the Lomographic Community! Why is that so? Let’s get to know what it’s all about as we talk with Evgeny, our Newcomer of the Week!

Name: Evgeny
LomoHome: http://www.lomography.com/homes/spitfiretheone
Location: Russia, Arkhangelsk
Current film cameras: Holga 120 CFN × Horizon S3 Pro × Horizon S3 U-500 × Lomo LC-A × Lomography Spinner 360 × Lubitel 166B × smena-3 × Fuji Instax Mini 50s

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

I knew about the Community for a long time but have decided to join when I’ve decided that my photos were good enough to show ‘em to people.

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

Maybe the 10th. :)

In this digital age, why still film?

Because of the unpredictability of the result. And tens of photos against thousands of digital photos.

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

None specific, sorry. But I like a lot of Lomographs in this Community!
