Monthly Workshops: Looking Fly in July!

Summer is officially here, and the lovely staff of Lomography Chicago can't wait to celebrate the warm weather with all of you. We've got a lot of fun workshops planned for this month, including the return of our most popular event, the Scavenger Hunt! Be sure to check out this and other events in this post!

Saturday July 6th @ 5pm – Build Your Own Konstruktor with Lomography Chicago! (FREE with purchase of Konstruktor)

Are you the proud owner of a brand new Konstruktor ? This revolutionary camera is the world’s first and only build-it-yourself SLR camera, and we want to build our first one with you! Bring in your un-built Konstruktor, or purchase one before and we will build it with you. Enjoy a drink with us afterwards, as a special reward for working so hard on your new camera with us. Take advantage of this alcohol-supplied work zone, because you may never get a chance like it again!

Sunday July 14 @ 2pm – Multiple Exposures with the La Sardina*

The La Sardina , modeled after tin cans packs a lot of punch! Come learn how to master this wide-angled beauty! We’ll go over how to make the best double exposures with the La Sardina. The La Sardina likes to party so we’ll show you how to take the best party and night-time pictures with this versatile camera. If you already have a La Sardina make sure to bring it with you, the workshop will be free and we’ll give you a free roll of film to use as well! If you don’t have a La Sardina don’t fret, we’ll have loaners for you to use.

Debuting Friday, July 19th: Karolina Lewczuk Gallery Openning! (FREE)

We are pleased to present the works of Karolina Lewczuk. She’s one of our favorite local Lomographers and has shown her work all over the world. Come see her photos taken with her trusty Holga, and enjoy some light snacks and drinks.

Sunday July 21st @ 2pm – Red Scale with Rachel*

Learn all about the magic of redscale film with our redscale guru Rachel! She will teach you everything you need to know about what redscale is, and how to even make your own redscale film. We will then head out to the park to shoot a little red scale of our own. Bring your Diana F+ to this workshop and it’s FREE! But you can always borrow one from us for just $10.

Yes, it is finally back! Our most popular event is back on a very exciting day.

You could be the proud new owner of a Lomography camera, or win one of our other fabulous analogue prizes. We ask that you come in groups of 3-5, but don’t worry! If you come alone we will team you up with another friendly group. Each group will be given a Diana with an Instant back, and a pack of film. Please stop into the store, or give us a call to sign yourself or your group up! And keep an eye on our magazine and Facebook page for more details.

We’ll give you a roll of film and it’s yours for the day. What better time to test out a new camera than Wicker Park Fest? Be sure to capture all there is to see and upload your photos to your Lomohome!
