Flickr pool and feature it right here Naomi Wong is a 17-year-old student and photographer living in the UK. "I'd like to make films in the future so photography has really helped me develop a further understanding into creating something visual," Naomi says. The photo above is from Naomi's "In Bloom" series which focuses on the everyday mundane activity of a girl in her bedroom. "It was inspired by one of my favorite films; Sofia Coppola’s Lost In Translation, particularly the scenes of Charlotte hanging around her hotel room. I love using light and color in my photographs, they’re my favorite aspects of creating an image." Naomi's favorite camera's are the Pentax Me Super--she uses a few special lenses and a flash with different colored filters. Naomi mainly shoots with film because of its "dream-like quality as well as the little imperfections of blurs, grain and light leaks." In Naomi's spare time she keeps busy by curating a tumblr called ANGSTY! Zine . "I love finding photographers on Flickr, there’s some really amazing stuff out there that deserves all the attention it should get."
