This is the first of many free lomography seminars that the Lomo Embassy will be organizing.
The Manila Lomo Embassy organized it’s first Lomo Seminar for the year. This was held in their office last April 17, 2010. Most of the speakers were from Lomomanila. They talked about the usual topics such as the definition of lomography, history of lomography, and the 10 Golden Rules. Each of the speakers showed some of their portfolio. Afterwards, the speakers talked about some popular lomographic cameras such as the LC-A+, the Horizon Kompakt, the Holga 120, the Diana+ and Diana Mini. A novelty during the seminar was the introduction of the LC-A+ Instant Back. We used several packs of Fuji Instax Mini Film and were very happy with the results. The LC-A+ Instant Back will be official launched by the Lomo Embassy next month. So we had a sneak preview of this great product. All the participants went home with some freebies and looked forward to getting into lomography given their new-found knowledge about this brand of film photography.
Heads up, Metro Manila-based Lomographers! A film photography workshop to be conducted by Meerly, former general manager of Lomography Singapore, featuring the Diana F+ will be held this month at Common Room in Quezon City, Philippines.
In case you missed it, Lomography has just unveiled the latest member of its Art Lens family: the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens, which boasts of the same optics that the legendary LC-A camera has and brings the classic Lomographic style not only to analog but also to the digital platform. Over the next few days we'll be sharing with you the first impressions of and photographs taken by members of the Lomography team, who had gone out and put the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 to the test. First up is graphic designer Andrea Cislaghi, who coupled this lens with the Bessa R2 and Sony Alpha 7.

This month, a new Lomography Embassy Store can be found in the capital of Colombia. A new Embassy Store doesn't only mean more space for exhibitions, community get-togethers and other projects, but also a big opening party and photo exhibition!
