How Wangyunhan Uses Her Lomographic Arsenal in Documentary Photography

Taiwan-based Lomographer wangyunhan hunts for stories found in everyday life in Taiwan and the places she travels to. Whether it's photographs of her friends, family members, strangers, all sorts of visual tidbits of life are worth the snap. While Wangyunhan is more straightforward with her approach to compositions, she is a little more exploratory than most documentary photographers thanks to her film gear, opting for some of Lomography's most trusted equipment for the everyday shooter.

The Classic and Dependable Lomo LC-A+

Her Lomo LC-A+ instantly takes the spot. The good old compact camera is known for producing rich colors, balanced saturation with subtle vignetting effects. Wangyunhan pointed out the sharpness of its lens, the Minitar-1 32/2.8, responsible for the vibrant and fine grain production on the images. The Lomo LC-A+ easily the jack-of-all-trades in the Lomographic arsenal.

Subtly Artistic with the Sprocket Rocket

Even documentarians desire to stray from the straightforward look, every once in a while. Wangyunhan owns a Sprocket Rocket Red 2.0, the more 'experimental' camera out of her collection. The open sprockets, vignettes and the panorama format adds a vintage vibe to the photogaphs, rendering these documentary shots simultaneously artistic yet still straightforward in the documentary tradition.

Always on the Go with Diana Mini

Last but not the least, wangyunhan keeps a Diana Mini around for those hasty pocket grabs during busy events and crowded places, a perfect and demure companion for fuss-free documentary photography. For a quick-paced routine and action-heavy photography, the Diana Mini puts the versatility in the 35 mm format.
