Alias: Satomi


I am a Lomography addict, a mother to many lovely analogue cameras, and a frantic film collector. I am currently storing more than 800 rolls of films in my fridge and I have a tendency to invade my roommate's shelves to store my food or I will most likely starve to death.

What do you most love about the La Sardina?

The flash!! It looks so old school and the best thing about it is the distance setting for flash, so you can adjust the amount of light depending on the distance from your subject. 

How would you describe La Sardina in five words?

Cuteness + Retro = Awesomeness

The strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest Lomographic encounter that you have ever had?

I've always had the greatest Lomographic encounter in my double projects with my friends. I always find unexplainable funny or crazy results in them, like mephisto19 grabbing my boobs, etc...

Your advice to future La Sardina shooters?

Rule #5: Approach the objects of your Lomographic desire as close as possible!
