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.

In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.

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.
