February is the time to share love, and take pictures! We've got some great workshops coming up just for our Chicago community. This month we've decided to focus on some essential analogue photography techniques. We want everyone to fall in love with the magic of film photography, just like we have!
Sunday February 9th @4pm – Bulb Setting
Learn how to take photos at night or indoors without a flash. Using the “bulb” setting on your camera can open up a whole new world of night time photography. We’ll teach you how to use this setting and show you some cool things you can do in the dark without a flash.
Sunday February 16th @2pm – Intro to Film Photography
Getting into film photography is a little intimidating if you don’t know how to get started. We’ll teach you everything you need to know to start shooting film! Don’t have a camera? No problem! We have lots of different cameras for you to rent. You’ll be an analogue photography pro at the end of this workshop!
Sunday February 23rd @2pm – Double Exposure Tips & Tricks
Have you ever wanted to learn how to do double exposures? This workshop will teach you how to get the most of your MX switch on your camera, and we’ll even teach you some basic tricks so you can take the coolest double exposures.
All workshops are $10 or $7 for students and include a loaner camera and a roll of film. Bring your own Lomography camera and it’s FREE!"

For Crow, his LC-Wide, which he fondly calls Elsie, is the perfect camera for his "Don't think, just shoot" attitude. He takes it wherever he goes and even uses the camera to teach his daughter about photography. In this interview, he shares more about his love for the LC-Wide plus some of the photographs taken by his young apprentice.

If you don't have tricks up your sleeve, however, you can still contribute to the Magazine and let your voice be heard. Here are some suggestions.
