Chinese photographer and aesthetics blogger HuiXingDao (Island) shares his views of local life and the colorful flora found in his city while using the Lomo'Instant Automat Glass for the very first time, perfect for the quick and instant shots that will satisfy any lover of film.

Introduce yourself to every Lomographer!

Hello everyone, I am Island. I have been a lecturer for a period of time. My job is game art design, and I take pictures in my spare time.

What is the meaning of taking pictures to you?

It can be better separated from the daily trivialities. Looking at the world in the viewfinder, it is easier to realize that "everything is beautiful".

What do you think is the most important thing to take a photo of?

Watch and observe more, I think. It is very helpful for the aesthetics and the subject to be photographed. This is not limited to photographic works, it can be a movie or a book. Therefore, when shooting a group of pictures, the shooting and post-production will be performed according to the setting of the theme. The key to establishing the theme is to "watch more".

How did it feel to try Lomo'Instant Automat Glass for the first time?

The image quality is excellent, especially the color reproduction, which is very suitable for daily recording. But when you are shooting vertically, you need to practice more and calculate the composition well.

Among the works shot with Lomo'Instant Automat Glass this time, which one do you like best?

This one. Although it is very common, the first time I used Lomo'Instant Automat Glass, I was incredibly surprised by the texture of the image. The double exposure of the camera can fill in some composition defects while also making the picture more colorful. In the summer in Beijing, the Chinese rose is flourishing. In this photo, the high saturation of color is strong. The Lomo'Instant Automat Glass can restore the atmosphere of the real scene very well.

What will you choose to shoot with Lomo'Instant Automat Glass next time?

In the case of practicing good composition, I will try more double exposure and time-lapse photography.

Is there any other product you want to try next time?

I will try more film shooting in the future. Of course, I still use Lomo'Instant Automat Glass to record life!
