Spools is in Session: A Workshop about Film @ Lomography Gallery Store NYC Greenwich Village

Sunday March 4th at the Lomography Gallery Store Greenwich, we held and amazing class with 9 eager Lomographers ready to learn the in’s and out’s of film. We covered everything you need to know about choosing the right film for your lighting situation, and choosing the right film for you.

From color negative to black and white negative, to the difference between slide film and cross-processing, we discussed it all. We learned, what is film, exactly? As well as how film is processed, a little bit of it’s history, different formats, and the array of results you can obtain from over 50 different varieties of film still available today!

We choose from an assortment of Lomo films based on what we wanted to shoot today, and what style we wanted to explore. Everyone chose something different, with fantastic results! We were also able to select any Lomo camera that we had our eager eye on to try, so we were able to choose both a film unique to our own voices and styles, as well as a camera that had a format suited to us. It was amazing what we could do once we knew a little more about our choices. Overall we had a blast being ourselves with our photographs. Now we can’t wait to explore all of the different films we can find!

Grab your favorite camera and join us next time we offer this fantastic workshop that is perfect for beginners and those advanced Lomographers alike who are looking to expand their knowledge of film!

    Reel vs. Real: Brad Pitt as Heinrich Harrer

    For this week's Reel vs. Real installment, we bring you back to the 1997 film about the travels and experiences of an Austrian mountaineer in Tibet from 1944 to 1951. We're sure many of you think it's somewhat familiar from the mere mention of Brad Pitt alone, so why don't we all revisit this adventure-packed biopic?

    LomoAmigos Yougofirst Shoot With The LomoKino In Their New Snowboard Movie

    Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!
