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.
Stephen Shore introduced to the 70s art world an unadorned image of American life. He captured littered restaurant tables as other photographers would immaculate vistas. For the opening of “American Surfaces”, he even taped unframed snapshots on gallery walls. In these videos, Shore talks about objects that have “no pretention to art” and the things he learned from Andy Warhol.
In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
