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!

This August, we bring you back to your roots and explore the wonders of nature! First, we cook up a storm with a film soup experiment. Followed by nature photowalks at beautiful scenic parks in Singapore to unearth the tips & tricks of trouble exposure, as well as the unique methods to perfect our macro shots. To cap off the learning month, we'll gather on a cozy Friday night for a new special sharing series by the Lomography Community -- with Sharing Session #1: Nature.
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!
The New Petzval Lens 85 continues to captivate the hearts of many photographers from its debut a couple of years back. A perfect balance between form and function, this lens closely mimics the look of the legendary Petzval lens of the 19th century and delivers eye-catching images with its signature tack sharp center and swirly bokeh background. Many photographers from both outside and inside the Lomography community have raved about the New Petzval 85. In this recap, we look back at four community-written reviews.
