Ryan Schude Lomography.com Interview

How long have you been a Lomographer (or are you new to this whole thing?)
I originally had a little plastic 35mm Lomo around 2000 but broke it when I dropped it from the top of a carnival ride somewhere along the central coast of California. I was driving from LA to SF with a friend and we randomly stopped at the smallest fair in the world. The ride operator said, “No cameras” and of course I almost killed him with it when it fell, what a jerk. Anyways, I haven’t shot with one since then until recently when I was invited to join the Lomo Amigos program and got my Lubitel.

The strangest, funniest, hands-down greatest photographic/Lomographic encounter that you have ever had.
Oh, this is a good question, hmm, there is a diptych I found on one of my rolls where a guy is approaching a girl in one frame, and then the next frame he is taking her away somewheres. By the time I had it developed, I could piece together where and when it was taken but the circumstances surrounding the individuals involved remain unclear. This encounter kinda represents why I love carrying the camera around again since it has been years since I’ve had anything handy to snap candids with. It’s a total departure from the work I’m used to making these days and a welcome return to something from the past.?
