Workshop: Bokeh Dreams with the Lubitel 166+

THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN MOVED TO THE LOMOGRAPHY GALLERY STORE GREENWICH. Please call 212-529-4351 for more details. If you are ready to take your photographic style to the next level and have always wanted to learn how to interject even more of that gorgeous dreamy quality into your photographs, then we definitely have the workshop for you! At the Lomography Gallery Store Gramercy in NYC, we will be hosting a very special workshop based on the technique of Bokeh using the lovely Lubitel 166+.

What: Bokeh Dreams with the Lubitel 166+
Camera: Lubitel 166+
Technique: Bokeh (Shallow Depth of Field)
When: Saturday, August 18, 2012 @ 2pm
Where: Lomography Gallery Store Gramercy

What is Bokeh, you ask? It is that creamy swirl of delight that happens when photographs have a shallow depth of field and only one part of the image is in focus. Learn how to have full control over your images’ focus and to shoot photographs like this with the allusive Lubitel 166+. Bokeh is not a beginner technique, but all are welcome if you are up for a challenge!
