Inaugural Auckland Lomography Meet Up: Auckland Domain Wintergardens

10

Join us for the first get together of arguably the most southern group of lomographers! All are welcome to talk film, shoot some pictures and discuss all things Lomo! See you at the Auckland Domain Wintergardens.

There’s no Lomography store, and no official Auckland Lomography representative. But, New Zealanders are a resourceful bunch, so with some number 8 wire, Facebook and some plastic cameras we’ve banded together here in Auckland to form Auckland Lomography, a small group of likeminded lomo people. We don’t know each other yet, and we don’t know if there are more of you out there, but we want to!

Our Inaugural meetup is coming up on Saturday, 14 April 2012: 2.00pm until 5.00pm.

We’ll get together at the entrance to the Wintergardens on the the open side of the front greenhouse (not the tropical one). This faces the museum.

Bring any film camera and any film you like. We’ll try to figure out through informal discussion as we move around what everyone wants out of the group for the future. If it’s raining we can still meet inside the greenhouse. Just bring an umbrella and a faster film ;). If people want to we can finish with a coffee at the museum.

If you intend to come, please sign up to our Facebook group, which we use for coordinating events and discussions.

    Fresh from the Lab: Silvia Precisa

    Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
