"This film camera has lots of special functions. I can take photos with different effects!"
Taiwanese photographer Zheng Dinghan shot with a prototype of Lomography's brand new film camera, the LomoApparat 21 mm Wide-angle Lens! He took this camera everywhere to record his daily life. Let's discover what he captured!
Hi Zheng, what were your first impressions upon receiving the camera?
My first impression was that the camera is very small, and I like the black square shape very much, which is something like between a point-and-shoot and a disposable camera.
What's the feature you liked most?
I like the multiple exposure function and the bulb mode. These two functions are very suitable for my creative style, so I made sure to test them when shooting.
Have you tried adding the close-up lens to shoot anything?
Yes, I took some close-up shots of potted flowers and sundried bamboo shoots.
Please tell us more about the photos you took with the camera.
This type of camera is good to record my daily life, so I didn't arrange a special shooting schedule. I just took it with me when I went to cafes, played sports, had dinner with friends, and then shot on the street using long exposure function. This camera has many functions, and can be easily switched to one another.
Can you use three words to describe the LomoApparat?
Lightweight, Versatile, Quiet.
Where would you take this camera?
I will take it to friend's gatherings and camping. But actually it can shoot anywhere!
Which photo do you like the most?
What I like best is this photo using long exposure. It is like painting with a small camera – a night scene full of imagination.
