Spinning in: Istanbul, Turkey
Nural is our girl in Turkey. Although she spends a lot of her time running business in the HR department of a multinational concern, 26 year old Nural Idrisoglu is a Lomographer at heart. When she got her hands on the Lomography Spinner 360°, she took it straight on a road trip around Turkey. Ancient Greek towns, sanctuaries and cathedrals were on the list as well as crowded beaches and awe-inspiring lookouts that jump out at you, along with Nural’s lovely smile and ever changing hairdo.
You’ve been spinning around with this camera for several months now. What do you think of it?
It's a great camera! It’s a little too big and therefore attracts suspicious eyes (especially at airports!!), but I love shooting with this camera! It's quite easy to use since there are not too many things you can change or control. The only tricky part for me was that I kept leaving it in "rewind" mode and ended up with a blank roll! But after I got used to it, I started listening to the sounds to figure out if I had a roll in and if it was working properly.
What is your approach to Lomography Spinner 360° Lomography?
Always have it with me, in case I see great scenery...
Your favourite technique?
I love the Backflip mode! It creates such different images than the rest, such a different point of view.
