The Lomo Embassy Manila and Lomomanila gave two separate talks on Lomography 101 last February 16, 2010 during the De La Salle University's alternative program day.
We were invited to give a talk on Lomography 101 during De La University’s alternative program day. I gave the talk together with fellow Lomomanila member Patty Lagera and Alex Rodriguez from Lomo Embassy Manila. I gave the usual introductions, history of lomography, definition, lomographic techniques and 10 golden rules. Patty gave some testimonials including how she discovered lomography and her favorite lomo cams and film.
She also showed her online portfolio of lomo shots. Alex talked about the different lomo cameras and gave recommendations for the newbies. She briefly explained what the lomo embassy does. She gave out brochures and pins from LSI. It was perhaps our longest talk for newbies ever, since we had two sessions (for two different groups) which included hands-on tutorials.
Last week we celebrated the arrival of the Lomo'Instant camera at the Lomography Soho Store with a huge launch party. We opened our doors late to showcase this exciting new compact instant camera! We gave you the chance to hold this beauty in your hands and have your photo taken in our instant photobooth. Read on to catch the event highlights.

Rather, the materials were intended for the motion picture industry and the results can vary depending on how the film is used. Learn more in this interview with the founder of KONO! Film, Uwe Mimoun.

On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
