Lens O' the Irish: St. Patrick's Day with Lomography SF

In San Francisco, St. Patrick’s Day means having a ton of fun, and Lomographers in San Francisco know just how to do that! We thought we'd take the chance to enjoy some of the festivities here in the city, so we held a workshop and set out to the St. Patty’s Day Parade with all of our favorite analogue snappers!

We’re grateful to have a great local film community, including Lomographers from the city as well as traveling international students and tourists in town for the weekend! A mixture of all ages and backgrounds joined us for a quick workshop featuring the Sprocket Rocket; Panoramics are the perfect way to capture large crowds!

We learned all about the how to get great multiple exposures and how to have fun shooting from the hip! Equipped with the ultra-colorful Superpop Sprocket Rocket editions, everyone was just as colorful as the parade itself. San Francisco always comes makes for a very interesting crowd, and today the community braved the threat of rain to come out and celebrate!

The photo walk was a blast as usual, and we’re looking forward to the next one. Hopefully, we’ll be seeing YOU in our store sometime soon! Join us for more workshops next month and keep an eye out for all our upcoming events!

All workshops include instructional lecture, loaner camera, and one free roll of film. Bring your own Lomographic camera for 50% off admission! Save $1 off your admission fee for each friend you bring to attend the workshop with you!

Workshops are $10 ($7 for students) unless otherwise noted. Workshop admission includes a free roll of film and a loaner camera if applicable. All participants will receive a 10% coupon for the store! All workshops have limited space. To sign up please ask a staff member in the store or email store.sanfrancisco@lomography.com
