Let’s get together on Sunday and shoot our city!

A little bit of Vienna in every City – Sunday February 28th 1PM – £10
The home of Lomography isn’t so far away. In fact you’ll find it’s just around the corner, as we set out to hunt for Vienna in London.

But how can we find Vienna in London? Here’s a top ten from Lomography HQ’s Mandi who took a break from the archive to think these through:

- coffee houses & their grumpy waiters
- sachertorte
- schnitzel !
- mozart
- stephansdom (st.stephans cathedral)
- fiaker
- jugendstil
- schönbrunn (Sissy)
- zentralfriedhof (central cemetary) & affection for death, the so called “morbide charme”
- heuriger (wine tavern serving wine of the year)
- sängerknaben (Vienna Boys’ Choir)

So what shall we do?

• Meet at the store at 1pm where you receive your free London Notebook, film and lend-a-camera
• Go over the mission and set some tasks
• You will then mission it to get as many Lomolocations as possible either in groups or individually
• Use the shop as a base to re-fill on film, borrow cameras and get tips!

How to create a Lomolocation:

• Shoot the location a lot so you can edit it down to 5 or 6 shots
• Write around 100-200 words on it (why is it great, special or why you should avoid it)
• Note down the name, address and contact details of the location if necessary

How to share the Lomolocations

You have three options

1. Set up a lomohome on www.lomography.com and post your locationssubmit here or submit individual shots to this post

2. Join our flickr group and submit to this discussion

3. Email the images and text to lomographyuk@lomography.com with the subject Lomomissions

If you chose option 2 or 3 we will then add the lomomissions to www.lomography.com via our lomohome

When you’re done shooting, we’ll also give you 15% off processing and 20% off more film on the day of the Lomomissions

PRIZES – If the prospect of capturing Vienna in London and sharing your ideas wasn’t rewarding enough, we are offering a special box from Vienna filled with gifts relating to the capital of Austria straight from the HQ of Lomography.

This will go to whoever shoots the most amount of Vienna inspired shots in London. Whoever we think gives us the best shot will get a one of our finest Woodgrain Fisheyes and a box filled with London related gifts for the guys at LGS London

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1

    Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!
