Newcomer of the Week: Danielnegreiros

3

Just like most of us, Lomography arrived in his life by fate. Fate by how, you ask? Fate through the means of luck, that’s how it happened.

And from that moment he learned and emerged himself into the beauty that is analogue photography. Finding his place in a world of Lomographs, he found our Community and accepted the “mood” he would love to keep. More from this week’s Newcomer, Daniel from Brasil!

Name: Daniel Negreiros
LomoHome: http://www.lomography.com/homes/danielnegreiros
Location: Belo Horizonte, Brasil
Current film cameras: LCA+, Diana F+, La Sardina, Pentax K1000, Olympus Trip 35, Juice Camera

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

Everything started when I won a Diana Deluxe Kit in an Instagram contest. The many options in the kit was so scared as excited. I went to the Lomography site, entered the Community, and saw a lot of beautiful and amazing photos. After I took my first shots I wanted to show it to friends and other Lomo lovers. I was surprised how active the Community is. Now I’m completely surrounded by this mood.

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

I’m very new in the Community and I think there are a lot of amazing people to be discovered. But at now there are two guys that I think have good Homes to follow. One is tall_bastard who have beatiful black and white photos in double exposure. And I also like the very colourful and creative pictures in raylim's Home.

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

My cameras become part of my day and I always have two of them in my backpack. It’s very fun to hunt pictures in your ordinary day.

In this digital age, why still film?

Shooting with film comes with a lot of personality. You have to choos the camera, the film, the process and there are a lot of things to experiment. The photos come with surprise and imperfections. The final photo tell a lot of things about you. It’s very fun and pleasant.

What are you looking forward to in our Community?

I’m very excited to see new and amazing photos from the Community every day. I also want to learn about shooting with film and the Lomo culture through the articles that the Community has been sharing.

Your favorite analogue camera as of the moment? Why?

The LC-A+ is my first choice because it is very easy and fast to shoot plus I love the results. It makes high quality photos with the soul of Lomography. I’m in love with LC-A+.

From Daniel’s LC-A+.

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

It’s hard to choose one because I’m very new. But I think that my current favorite Lomograph is my first successful one.

I wasn’t expecting the double-exposed results with these nice colours. It was very pleasant and after publishing it, I got a lot of praise. It makes me start loving film photography!

    Gommorah Girl: An Interview with Valerio Spada

    Valerio Spada went beyond his comfort zone and stepped right into the battlefield with his camera. He went to Naples, Italy, an area populated by the Camorra Mafia but also home to Annalisa Durante who, at the age of 14, was killed by a bullet aimed at a Camorra boss. What happened to her could've happened to any of the girls portrayed in the book Gommorah Girl. This work is about Annalisa. It's about all of the girls that, just like her, seem doomed to an unfair destiny - which, hopefully, may still change.
