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.
December is here and with it comes lots of festive cheer and some exciting events and workshops at the Lomography Gallery Store Soho. Read on to find out more and to book your spot this Christmas Season.
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.
Before the month of July ended, Lomography Gallery Store Soho held the mother of all parties with the opening night of the Lomography x Nixon Exhibition. People spilled out onto the streets and queued up to see psych-pop band Swim Mountain play live. Find out more about the event after the jump.
Done shooting and want your films to be processed? We can process your colour and black & white 35mm, 120 or 110 films! Development, prints and scans are also included. (Service availability depends on your markets)
This August, we bring you back to your roots and explore the wonders of nature! First, we cook up a storm with a film soup experiment. Followed by nature photowalks at beautiful scenic parks in Singapore to unearth the tips & tricks of trouble exposure, as well as the unique methods to perfect our macro shots. To cap off the learning month, we'll gather on a cozy Friday night for a new special sharing series by the Lomography Community -- with Sharing Session #1: Nature.
Beat the June gloom with some new photographic adventures. With a slew of city-wide street festivals and better weather, we've come up with some fun events this month to keep you inspired. Now, go out and shoot!
Scott Brasher is a fashion street photographer based in New York City. His work has been featured on many media outlets while working with brands like Cover Girl, MTV, Reebok, and Target, among many others. But before this, Scott started shooting in the streets of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, capturing its daily urban fashion. Last month, he took the Petzval Lens to the streets of New York to photograph scenes at the famous New York Fashion Week.
Say goodbye to October and hello to November. The weather is getting colder but we have a bunch of workshops that will keep you warm! We have a lot in store for us, from a walk in the park with the Petzval to creating light painting masterpieces.
The London Analogue Festival celebrates everything analogue, from music art, film and of course photography too! This year’s festival takes place at the OXO Tower in London from September 12 to 14. Lomography will be hosting a special Sprocket Rocket Workshop on Saturday, September 13. It’s completely free to attend but booking in advance is advised. Read on for details.
In 2007, married couple Magda Biernat and Ian Webster left their jobs to travel the world. They went from cold to heat, from concrete cities to faraway grasslands. They recall their expedition in a photo book and a Clic Gallery exhibition.
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.
In 24 hours time Lomography UK will be heading out to the Oxfordshire countryside to deliver some special workshops from a tent at the Wilderness festival. It was so much fun last year so we thought we would share some of the best photos from 2013. See you there!
Here at the Lomography NYC Gallery Store, we are always testing and playing with our cameras and accessories. We asked our staff to test the new Lomo'Instant camera. Liz, our lab assistant, went crazy with the long exposure future.
