"Intro to Lomography" Workshop at B&H Event Space in New York.
What exactly is Lomography? In this comprehensive introduction to all things Lomographic, you’ll learn the history of the Lomographic Society, from its early days as an art project in Vienna, to its current status as an international analogue creative snapshot society counting over 1 million members around the world! We’ll go over all of their cameras, from it’s namesake the Lomo LCA, the multiple lens sensation, all through their lovingly created Diana +. Plus tips and tricks for bending each unique analogue camera to fit your own Lomographic desire. During the second half of the workshop, borrow a loaner camera, receive your free roll of film, and join us for a LomoJourney around Mid-town and experience the fun of Lomography first hand! Attendees are invited to bring their Lomographic cameras along for questions or tips on their use. Please have ID available so that you may borrow one of our lend-a-lomos during the safari portion of the workshop.
Beat the June gloom with some new photographic adventures. With a slew of city-wide street festivals and better weather, we've come up with some fun events this month to keep you inspired. Now, go out and shoot!
Join us for an evening with NYC-based fashion photographer Emily Soto. Concurrent with her exhibition at our Gallery Store, "Petzval Portrats: Bloom," Emily will discuss her work and experience using the New Petzval Art Lens in her work. Gather insight into the creative process of one of New York's favorite photographers. This event will take place on July 9 at 6:00 p.m.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Manchester is giving birth to a new generation of up-and-coming artists and musicians. Among them is indie band Money, which performed at the recently held CMJ Music Marathon in New York City. Check out a video of the band's recent performance.
The band Wannabe Jalva came all the way from Brazil to be part of the CMJ Music Marathon. We asked the band's members to be part of the LomoAmigo crew and catch a glimpse of the Big Apple, and they documented a week-long stay in New York with a Lomography La Sardina camera.
New York City celebrated the bees that pollinate the world and we got to participate in the family-friendly extravaganza on Beach 97 Boardwalk, Rockaway, Boardwalk. There was art, food, music, crafts, a Bee Marketplace, and lots of sweet sweet honey.

Say goodbye to October and hello to November. The weather is getting colder but we have a bunch of workshops that will keep you warm! We have a lot in store for us, from a walk in the park with the Petzval to creating light painting masterpieces.
