2011-06-01 45

Meet Warning! This Spanish lady is sure to capture your attention with her edgy photographs! Yet she shows a fun side of her in this interview, get to know her more right here!

1. Tell us about yourself and the meaning of your username.

My name is Tania. I come from Spain and I live in Madrid.

I’m a fashion stylist and window dresser.

I love my family, food, traveling, art, photography, rock music, concerts, magic, mystery, shoes, fashion, good smells, affection, well-educated, positive people and the beautiful things.

About my username. When my daughter Noa was a little baby, she was always intrigued by a label with black and yellow letters on the left side of her baby car. The label read “WARNING”, and warned not to put the baby seat in a certain dangerous position in the car. She spent all day looking at those letters. I guess she was attracted to the colors. My little sister started to call her “Noa Warning”.

I had the name tattooed on my forearm.

2. Where do yo get this taboo insane photoshoot ideas? Btw, it´s totally awesome!

Hehe, thanks. I don’t know exactly. I have very strange dreams and sometimes, just before I get a visit from Morpheus, I get really clear and mad images in my head (this is when everyone starts to think I’m insane). I try to play with those dreams and images. I used to draw a lot, but it’s quite difficult for me. I prefer to take a picture of an idea, it has many more details.

I like playing with politically incorrect issues. I do not like repression or religion in general (with all due respect to people of faith). Some of my photos represent my rejection of the Puritan mentality.

I can see beauty in the darkness, but always finding the balance between the aesthetic and the gloomy. I can become very contradictory with my tastes. I can like the corniest things and also the goriest, it’s a good mix. Don’t you think?

3. How long have you been into Lomography?. What made you pick up a lomo/lo-fi camera?

I’ve been into Lomography since about 2009, more or less.

I lived very near to the lomo store in Madrid, but I always walked straight past it. It was always at night and it was closed. I browsed from the outside through the window and i saw a world full of colour and fun. Then I thought, what the hell is Lomography?.

After a while, I read an article in a magazine about the Fisheye No. 2. It had to be mine! I went to the store and bought it. This was the first time I’d gone, and I knew it would not be the last… I said I loved nice things, and believe me, they were all nice!

4. You´re given a chance to create a new camera for Lomography, what it would be?

Well, how about a Photomaton lomo camera (like the ones they still have in Berlin)? That would be fun!

5. Where would you like to travel and shoot to?

So many places!!!! Iceland, Transylvania, Brazil, Louisiana, Colorado, Chile, Tanzania, Jordan and especially Asia. The exotic locations are the most photogenic in my opinion.

Nepal, India, Cambodia, Mongolia… are the best places in the world to shoot.

My next destination will be Thailand, in just one week!

6. Favorite shooting style/technique?

I prefer to look through the viewfinder, I like having a little bit of the control. I would only break the rules with the fisheye. About the technique, I’m still learning from my mistakes little by little, but I love the double exposures, the results are crazy!.

7. Someone shouts at you “your camera is ugly and so are you” What do you do?

I would respond, “Love, jealousy eats away at you”.

8. If you were a film, what and why would you be that film?

I would be an Agfa CT Precisa, because it’s special, difficult to find and never fails you. Wait a minute, I’m describing my ideal man too!

9. Any interesting experience related to Lomography happened lately?

I’ve had many interesting experiences with Lomography. Perhaps the most notable was the publication of an article in a major Spanish newspaper about Lomography, with photos of various spanish lomographers, including me. This made me very excited.

10. What advice can you share with us? A warning perhaps?

Hahahaha. Look at many images in magazines, books, movies…this really helps to inspire and to be more creative. Don’t limit yourself, remember that we set our own constraints.
