Chester Lomography Meet Up pictures!!!

14

The first Lomography meet up in Chester !

The first official Lomography meet up in Chester was held on Saturday (11/12/10) . We all met underneath the clock tower up on the walls that surround Chester .

I had the idea to take instant photos of everyone with their camera of choice…

This is me , with my LC-A+ !
This is Alex , my much better half and a lomo virgin !
This is Dan (phil2k90) from Chester – very tall chap !
This is Dave with his original Lubitel.
This is Kneehigh85 with her Mini Diana .

From the East Gate Clock we walked around the walls down to the Christmas market , walking past the River Dee and then we walked up the steepest street in UK – Dan’s idea !

Dan and Alex walking around the walls .
The view off the walls , looking over the river Dee.
A statue of Queen Victoria , just as we entered the Chester Crown Court car park .
The big wheel!
Dave with the worlds smallest slr !
Some shots of the carousel .
The girl with horse legs ( you had to be there to get this joke!)
Alex and Dave enjoying some mulled cider

Thanks to every one that came and all the folks at Lomography UK for making this happen ! We all had a really fun afternoon shooting away in Chester and the Christmas market . We’ve all got a good few rolls of film that need developing , I think we should have them done with in a month or so ! I hope we get to do it all again in the new year !

John : )

    Ah man, got serious envy of Dan's cameras - but it is a Kiev 88 rather than a Lubitel in the Polaroid! Would be up for the next one too :-)

    I'm not to sharp on my 120 TLRs lol It would be great to see you at the next one !

    Hah, it's a SLR not a TLR too! I've been to Chester once (oddly enough for photographic reasons too!) and it was a pretty horrid experience, but mostly from the company!

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part Two)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.

    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.
