We couldn’t be any happier with the first Lomography Chicago meetup! With 19 Lomographers strong our group was fired up to learn all about the new store in Wicker Park.
We enjoyed some cool beers on the warm spring night at the local Beachwood Inn Bar. A couple of dedicated Lomographers brought their own cameras like the Diana F+, Diana Mini and a Fisheye. And everyone got a chance to take some pictures with our loaner La Sardina, LCA+ and Diana with a 35mm back. After getting to know one another we went for a quick stroll over to the new store front so everyone can mark it on their maps.
It’s pretty easy to see that Lomography will fit in and be quite at home here in Chicago. We are so excited to start our analog journey with you Chi town!

We are always hunting for creative ideas on how to open up new shooting possibilities and it doesn’t get any better than when we discover something simple which works like a charm right away. Recently, the idea was raised that perhaps the Diana+ Splitzer would be compatible with the Lomo’Instant – Lo and behold, it is!
