Lomography Chicago - Our Trip to the Indiana Dunes for World Pinhole Day!

This may go down in the Lomography Chicago history books as our favorite event so far. We had an amazing day at the Indiana Dunes for World Pinhole Day! The weather was great, and so was the group. Take a look through the photos taken throughout the day, and mark your calenders for next year!

We started our adventure at the store and boarded our magic school bus. Chicago staff Piper and Rachel taught our 15 new and experienced Lomographers all about pinhole photography and the versatile Diana F+ which is the trusty camera to be used at the Dunes!

We arrived at the Dunes and adventured down to the beach, and up to the eagles point overlook! No matter where you were, there was beauty to be seen and pictures to be taken!

Check out the Pinhole photos we took at the Dunes using the Lomo XR 50-200 film, and Lomo color 100 film with the Diana F+. And if you attened this event be sure to share your photos with us on our Facebook. page, and if you haven’t already sign up for a FREE Lomo Home and share your photos with us, and the Lomography community!

Thanks so much to everyone who came, and be on the lookout for future events!

    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.
