I Dream of Cameras #31 Sissy Lu Who

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-bznwb-12093c4

The centerpiece of this episode is an extended interview with film photographer Sissi Lu, known to denizens of New York City as the Lady with the Hassy. She’s a street shooter and a portraitist and a TikTokker and a YouTuber, and her passion for photography is infectious. It’s one of our best conversations yet, so TOON IN! But first…
  • A manageable mailbag!
  • Marie Nikondo is RUTHLESS! Check out our Instagram for some cameras Gabe is offloading, and feel free to DM him and float a trade!
  • and then, our conversation with Sissi Lu, featuring
    • strategies for street photography
    • the allure of the Hasselblad (and how it’s different than shooting a 35mm SLR like her Nikon F3)
    • building a community of like-minded shooters
    • forging a connection with your subjects
    • the challenge of leaving the house with only two or three cameras
    • designing the ideal camera bag
    • using the self-timer (yes, she uses it)
    • favorite film stocks (spoiler: she loves Lomo 800) and her second favorite New York film lab (picturehouse + thesmalldarkroom in Chelsea)
