LomoGuru of the Week: Superlighter


Having a high concept of friendship, Aurelio or much known as Superlighter in the Lomographic realm would really prefer to meet fellow hip-shooters offline and talk about films and cameras; share tips and whatnots over a mug of beer!

Name: Aurelio Laloni
LomoHome: http://www.lomography.com/homes/superlighter
Location: Osimo, Italy
Number of years as a Lomographer: Since July 1997
Number of years in the Community: 10 years

Share to us your most memorable experience in the Lomographic Community.

In my hands I have the very great big book of the LC-A and after browsing a few pages, I saw ione of my photos printed on two pages! The irrefutable proof that I am a Lomographer! Oh, and every time I win a competition, you know, it’s not easy at all, even if take it for granted that you will be the winner, there is always someone with a better picture of yours. But when you make it .. Oh my! What a fantastic feeling!

Have you actually met people in the Community that you now consider as close friends? If yes, name at least one of them.

A difficult question. I have a very high concept of friendship, and use this word in a context like that of the Internet leaves me a little doubtful. However, there are dozens of Lomographers I really like to meet. Some names? I can say mephisto19, vicuna, neja, artichekt, dakadev_pui, domyblue goonies or life_on_mars just to mention the first names that comes to my mind. I apologize to all the others I have not mentioned. I have 400 friends in my LomoHome and I really respect and love you all! Obviously we are talking about net meeting, however if we speak of physical meetings I must say that lately in my area, it is becoming a small beautiful community of new Lomographers. someone is already a big Lomo-star like weidong and his funny cat Ziggy  or lomike and gibri or also drinkwater, I meet them often because they live in my own town or nearby.

Do you think you’ll still be taking Lomographs in the next 5 years? Why?

Of course! Because it makes me feel so good!

What is your favorite Lomo camera and why? Do you have any memorable experiences while using this camera?

No doubt, the Lomo LC-A. Why? Because it has everything I need to make a good photograph. Every time I use it, it gives me a memorable experience.

Is there any advice you can give to new analogue shooters?

Yes, learn the rules and then break some. And be patient, good results have need of a little practice.

    @fabc68 @vanilajan @renenob @ripsta @adi_totp @lighthouseblues @stouf @mephisto19 @vicuna @ophelia @grazie @dreadlockboy @dakadev_pui We are all on the same train. a long train that runs every day millions of kilometers from east to west from south to north, at each station there is someone who comes down and someone goes up. I'm on this train for 10 years, I don't want to come down until I meet people like you. Thanks, I love you!
