The pocket format camera and film are some of the easiest mediums to fix yourself a simple and consistent analogue routine. Photographer Josen Chen shares his experience with the bright and roaring Lomography Color Tiger 110 and shares his own approach with the format.
Hi Josen! Introduce yourself to everyone!
Hi, everyone, my name is Josen Chen. I am now a copywriter for a public relations company, and before that I was a sports photographer.
What are your expectations for your photography?
Besides recording daily life, I expect my photography to have some kind of artistic function, at least to be able to achieve the ability to “express emotions in appropriate forms”.
how does the 110 format and other formats differentiate from each other in your routine?
The 110 cameras are light and easy to carry. When I am shooting, I will self-suggest: I’m shooting the most interesting 110 film, and I must press the shutter when it is interesting.
Are there any tips you can share when using a 110 camera?
I have two tips: 1. Understand the flash parameters of your camera, and 2. Find a reliable lab.
What are you planning next?
The original plan was to return to Tsingtao. Now that the pandemic is surging again, it may have to be postponed.
Thanks for sharing, and I am looking forward to your more exciting works in the future! For more Josen's wonderful works, please follow his Weibo account, @-云生-.
