Liverpool Lomo Meetup in February


It has been a long time since I harassed all you Northern Lomo geeks for a meetup so I feel that now would be a suitable time to get on it. Let’s do Liverpool in February.

Credits: kneehigh85

So, as I stated in my blog entry recently “I have forgotten what you all look like”, and I can’t really remember the last proper meet up we had here in the North of England. Well I can, it was Blackpool in June. Anyway, after putting the feelers out people seem to have decided that February in Liverpool would be a good idea. I therefore think we should all meet in Liverpool Lime Street station at 12pm on Saturday 22 February. The National Rail website doesn’t exactly make it clear but there appears to be a pub so I guess we congregate in there initially.

If there is anyone from Liverpool who could actually show us around and that kind of thing then please come forward as I know very very little about the place! If anyone has any further comments or suggestions then feel free to leave a comment below this article. And invite newbies along as we don’t want our group size to dwindle – I am aiming for at least 15 people present this trip.

Thanks for reading and I hope to see all of you there.

    Hey y'all, is this still going down, I'm from Liverpool and would love to walk around with some other lomographers. I don't do much Lomo here, the development is terribad here, but I'm more keen to bring the Holga out and meet new people :)

    Morning. It's been ages since I took my LCA out, and I've sadly never used my Diana so I'm up for a walk n shoot.

    Hey @spudhead1uk I am trying to figure out if we should continue to Liverpool as planned (maybe just in one car though so we can all chip for petrol). There is me, you, Adam and Lou coming from here. Also @marthasmarvels and @pigdog are coming but obviously as they are Yorkshire based then they could do somthing local. Then there is @petecarr and @mike-brits who are both in liverpool so it would be nice to meet them if they are deffo planning to come with. Also I haven't had a reply from @jennysparkle (get your arse in gear lady!) to see if her and her fella are coming too. Can anyone help me formulate a plan ASAP!

    Not all photographs are meant to be seen in vibrant, saturated colors, and neither are they always suitable for in black and white. Lomography welcomes yet another innovation from KONO! The Reanimated Film. Without diminishing the aesthetic value of images, KONO! Donau 35mm Film casts a distinct blue tone to photos. It is ultra-low ISO film that is best used for long exposure shots.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Salvation Mountain

    Leonard Knight passed away last year but he left an incredible legacy, an embodiment of love, that is Salvation Mountain. From 1984, he painted and remodeled a little hill in the California desert that's colorful as a cupcake and truly meaningful. And if anything ever would have been meant to be shot with Lomo cameras, it would be this psychedelic, holy hill.

    In New York City, winter has been harsh and long, the nights long and cold, and shooting outside is not fun anymore. So when the Lomo'Instant Boston Edition hit the shelves this week and the new Splitzer arrived at the Lomography Gallery Store New York, we decided to do a round of light painting portraits instead of sunny ones.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    The founder of The Pop-Up Pinhole Co., Kelly Angood, has been handcrafting pinhole cameras from scratch since 2010. After developing a huge online following from one of her early pinhole designs, she embarked on a mission to design an affordable, functional pinhole camera that could be constructed all in the comfort of your own home — and it had to look great too! Following an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign, her mission was realized. Read on to see how it happened and what's next for Kelly and The Pop-Up Pinhole Company!
