Hey Denver! You know that guy that figured out the Diana was the bee's knees? He hung out with and/or shot the kinds of people you only read about, now. Andy Warhol, Basquiat, J.D. Salinger, etc. Yeah, Mark Sink! The man, himself, is going to run a workshop with us in Denver and you can come!
If you don’t know who Mark Sink is, turn to page 143 in your Diana F+ book. The man virtually popularized the use of the Diana and shoots with it, to this day. Well, Lomography will have their representative, Cameron Russell, in town on Oct 27th to help Mark host a workshop. Denver Pro Photo has agreed to let us use their studio space to do it.
There could be no better combination. Mark is a lover of plastic cameras, soft images, and blurred edges. Lomography is a society of people dedicated to analogue photography and all the quirks it involves. With our powers combined, we will make sure you leave inspired and with a head full of new ways to approach the object of your lomographic desire.
So, what will we cover? What are we going to teach you? We will go over the basics. Why analogue photography, what film should you shoot, what camera best suits your style, ways to improve what you’re already shooting, and more. Mark and Cameron will have three hours to talk and instruct in Denver Pro Photo’s large and well stocked Studio 3. There’s backdrops, props, and more to incorporate with practicing your shots. That’s three hours with two people that couldn’t be more passionate about analogue cameras and plastic lenses.
Not only that, but Denver Pro Photo now carries a large selection of our cameras. There’s a good chance that you’ll fall in love with a new analogue machine, that day. Denver Pro Photo can help you with a rarity in analogue photography…instant gratification.
There is too much going on to miss this event. We’ll have Dianas and a roll of film to loan you. Two analogue lovers to instruct you, and a space that couldn’t be more accommodating. So, come down to Denver Pro Photo from 12pm-3pm and immerse yourself in an event that is rarer than an eclipse. See you soon, Denver!
The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!
As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.

We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. I'll start with Rapid film.
After a fully booked 2015, photographer Chloé Vollmer-Lo found time to test the Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens. She brought it to the Natural History Museum and the Paris business district, an endeavor that resulted in quite a few stunning, bokeh-rich images.
