First Impressions of the LomoApparat by Tommaso Carrara


UK-based street photographer Tommaso Carrara takes a relaxed and care-free approach to photography. He doesn't think to much about the results of his photos and just enjoys capturing any given moment. It is through this laissez fair approach to photography that he is able to capture some candid moments and is the reason why we sent him one of the very first prorotypes of the new LomoApparat to test out on the streets of London and Southend-on-Sea.

What were your first impressions upon receiving the camera?

At first it really seemed very fragile, but, after shooting the camera my initial impressions really changed. The only thing is it was not super clear to me how to set the shutter to avoid bulb, but I guess this will be taken care of later with stickers.

What's the feature you liked most?

Definitely the double exposure feature allows for many creative shooting possibilites, and it is simple enough to activate it.

Please tell us about the photos you took with the camera

I took the photos in London and Southend-on-Sea during the past weekend. Shooting with such a simple camera is, to some extent liberating, as you do not have to worry about anything else than framing basically. I focussed on candid shots and I think the way the camera looks also helped me not getting noticed by most of the people. I also took some double exposures, when I was at the Theme Park, and I think they came out pretty nicely.

Where would you take this camera?

I would take this camera pretty much everywhere as it really does not require too much care or planning.

Also, considering the price the camera will be sold at, as a owner I would tend to use it in a variety of contexts without worrying too much.

What does it mean to you to see new film cameras being released in 2022?

As a film shooter, this is a very good thing for sure. Maybe this represents an opportunity for Lomography to target a subset of users introducing some new features?

    All thanks to Dr Raypower for his wonderful work. My wife left me, not for another man, but because she caught me cheating on her. It was a single indiscretion on my part and I got caught red handed. I was not only embarrassed, but also angry with myself for doing this to our marriage. She had every right to leave me as she did, and file for divorce. I’m sure glad I recruited Dr Raypower help. The way he explained that we all make mistakes and deserve forgiveness when we are truly sorry made so much sense to me, and I really was sorry. I’m glad to say that Dr Raypower's love spell worked magic and we are back together again.
