2012-12-13 5

Better get those bellies dancing for this Holiday LomoAmigo we’ve interviewed for you! She sure is no stranger to our Community so come and see who this gal is.

A long-time Community member who aside from taking brilliant Lomographs, is also a booty-shaking Holiday LomoAmigo, wave hello to barakalofi! If you’ve got your holidays planned on the dance floor, then this LomoAmigo is the best for you!

Name: Margarita Carvajal Durán
LomoHome: barakalofi
Location: Cádiz, Spain.

Tell us about yourself. What do you do for a living? What are your interests?

Well, I’m only a woman in the world, a woman with a child spirit who dances for living (or living for dancing!) I’m bellydancer and I love it. My interests are dance, photography, cats, music… all about culture!

How long have you been a Lomographer and how did you find out about the Community?

I’ve been a Lomographer for five years. I knew the Community through the internet.

What are your plans for the holidays?

My plans for the holidays are dancing, dancing, and dancing! Plus going to Madrid for “The Immortal: A Tribute to Michael Jackson with the Cirque du Soleil” and well, RELAX!

Any New Year’s resolutions for 2013?

I never make resolutions for New Year. Only that I try to be a better person and try to enjoy the life with my family and friends every year.

If you could recommend one movie and one song to everyone, what would they be?

I recommend my favourite movie: Kill Bill by Quentin Tarantino. Love it! Good actors, good scenes,very good music and fun.

One song? Smooth Criminal! AWWWWWWWW!

✘ Youtube:

What’s your favourite analogue camera to shoot with? Why?

For all: LC-Wide, because it’s good for all situations!

For portraits: Yashica 635 or any TLR camera. I love the medium format for portraits.

What’s the next camera you’d like to get your hands on?

Mmmmmm… A Hasselblad? A Rollei TLR? A Mamiya? Dreams can come true!

What’s your favourite memory from this year?

My favourite memory from this year was been being selected from a casting for dancing with a great belly dance company in Mexico! For me, this has been a dream!

And now for the toughest question – What’s been your favorite photo from the past year? Why?

Why? A good film, good conditions, good model, and a big satisfaction.

Any holiday shout-outs or tips for your fellow Lomographers?

Enjoy, relax, and make a lot of pictures for remembering the holidays!!!
