Fellow Travelers! Here it is, the next LA Lomo Meet-Up
We’re meeting on Saturday April 4th at 10:00 a.m. at my apartment (shoot me an e-mail and i’ll get you the address and directions). There’s a tram sign on the sidewalk so we’ll probably be congregating there, or just keep an eye out for a bunch of people with cameras in hand. From there we’re going to head over to the closest DASH pick-up (don’t worry it’s just a couple blocks aways) and taking the F Line on into the heart of downtown. It’s just twenty-five cents each way, so make sure to bring quarters. Then it’s an all out Lomo escapade the likes Los Angeles has never seen before. There’s plenty of spots to check out and districts to get lost in. So make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and bring tons of film. And really we’ll just be exploring until our trigger fingers go numb or film runs out.
And for those who still have energy enough to soldier on, that evening is the opening of USC’s Senior Seminar show “What From White” over in Culver City at the H. Kazan Gallery. Definitely worth checking that out and any other potential openings going on in the neighborhood. We should be able to work out transportation, and who doesn’t enjoy carpooling?
So grab your cameras, load up some film, and get ready to conquer Los Angeles one frame at a time.

You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
The people we meet and the places we go to are essential ingredients to creating our most treasured memories. To preserve those memories, however, we need a little help from our trusty cameras, and if you want sharper, more vibrant memories with a blanket of vignette and oozing with unique character, hook up your camera with Lomography’s latest innovation, the New Russar+ Lens.
Derek Woods is an Los Angeles-based photographer who previously got involved in a controversy surrounding a photo that was used in the opening credits of the HBO TV series "True Detective." Coincidentally, Woods happens to be a member of the Lomo community, and it became vital to interview him regarding the issue. The interview was successful and was published in May last year. His current project, 365 of Lomography, will chronicle his day-to-day exploits with Lomography cameras. To jog your memory, and to re-acquaint you with Woods, we are republishing our interview with the controversial photographer. Please take note that some of the photos are NSFW.
