The night was cold and white. Snow covered the streets of Berlin but nevertheless, 12 brave workshop paricipants went out to explore the city at night.
The second Lomography workshop at the Lomography Gallery Store was a real challenge. Winter had Berlin under control and so the workshop participants were glad to stay indoors for a while. First we gave an introduction to our beloved Lomography Fisheye 2 and Diana Mini cameras: how to insert a film, what does the letter “B” stand for on my camera, what the hell is long exposure and how do I use it?
Equipped with either Lomography Fisheye 2 cameras or Diana Minis, some Diana Flashes and warm clothes we went out into the cold winter night at January 9th. Right across the street the Friedrichstadtpalast was a wonderful example for a long exposure with all the blinking and flashing lights. Some people that passed by curiously looked at us. We then went on further down the road up to the Friedrichstraße station where even more lights waited to be captured on film. We tried lightpainting, took pictures of the tram passing by, of the cars that went down the street or did some long exposure doubles with the Fisheye 2 camera.
After one hour our fingers where numb and our feet cold so we want back into the warm Lomography Gallery Store to collect our films. Everybody was happy to be indoors again and after warming up, the participants went home with a smile on their faces. Winter can be so nice and colorful when you know how to do long exposures.
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.

Lomography UK was lucky enough to test an LC-A 120 prototype in store and it was glorious! We used colour and black and white film to capture the camera at its finest. It was everything you would expect from the LC-A but in full frame 38mm f/4.5 120 film. It's LOVE.
