Get yourselves ready, Bay Area. We're going to swoop into the city like the classic San Francisco fog - in fact, cooler! Our team has been working to open our doors this Thursday, and with our superb architects in from Vienna, the shop is really starting to come to life. Check out the teaser video below to get a quick glimpse of Lomography San Francisco in the early stages...
The Store’s Opening Party begins at 7 PM at our 309 Sutter location (cross street is Grant) and it is sure to rival the city’s fervor during the original Gold Rush – especially with food provided by The Rib Whip and custom sweets from Mission Minis. To burn off those gluttonous indulgences, we’ve got a line-up that will make you want to dance all night with DJ Carnita spinning top-notch vinyl as one-half of the famous Hard French experience and a performance from the award-winning traditional bluegrass band Windy Hill. Obviously, it wouldn’t be San Francisco without a cocktail, which is why we’ll have the scientists over at Cocktail Lab rocking some moonshine punches just for us!
Want to come? Of course you do! You won’t get in without your name on the guest list. So be sure to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure that you can get in to our big event.
Really want to bring your film photos to life? We’re now offering totally analogue fine art prints in a host of large sizes and formats! Carefully enlarged from your negatives onto premium photographic paper by lab professionals, each picture is a unique piece of craftsmanship.
Chloé Vollmer-Lo's photos speak for themselves. Every image, whether it's a portrait or a seemingly simple snapshot of a street alley, tells a story. The Paris-based photographer tested the New Petval Lens 85 recently, and the results, as expected, speak volumes. She talks about her experience as a freelance photographer - and with the New Petval Lens 85 - in this exclusive interview.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos 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!
"You put your camera around your neck in the morning along with putting on your shoes, and there it is, an appendage of the body that shares your life with you," said Dorothea Lange, the icon whose birthdate we celebrate today, May 26.
