Chicago winters are tough, but they make everyone in this city really appreciate summertime. It's time to get out of the house and maybe see those friends you've been blowing off during your hibernation. As for us, we've planned some really special events for all of you to come out to. What better way to enjoy the sunny days than a boat tour with your favorite people ever! .... We're talking about us, not your action figure collection.
Sunday June 2nd @ 2pm – Lomokino Movie Maker!*
Finally, you can be the master of film-making! Come to this workshop and we’ll show you how to use the LomoKino to make your own amazing short movies. Did you know that there is a way to record your movies into your smart phone? We will teach you how! If you have your own LomoKino be sure to bring it, and if not you can borrow one from us.
Sunday June 9th @ 2pm – Darling Diana Mini*
The Diana Mini may be a petite little darling but she’s got lots of tricks up her sleeve! This camera can shoot square and half-frame, take multiple exposures, and so much more! Bring your own Diana Mini and we’ll give you free film to shoot with, but don’t worry if you don’t. We’ve got loaners available at the store. Come out and see why this cutie is one of our favorite cameras to shoot with.

Well if we told you, it wouldn’t be a mystery, duh. We’ll give you some hints though throughout the party. Be sure to come prepared in your most DIY outfit. We’re looking for people who dress according to our CONSTRUCTION theme (that may be a hint about the camera, just saying).

We will be using our favorite X-PRO camera for this workshop, the LCA+. You will become an X-PRO pro before you leave for the day!
