Lomography cameras are the hardware of analogue photography, but film will always be the software. So how do you make sense of all the different film choices out there?
There’s the eye-popping color explosion of cross-processed slide film – the delicate nuances of the finest color negative film – and the smooth grains of the classic black and white. Film offers the analog photographer so many choices, so many varying effects, and so many inspiring results that it helps to have a better understanding of all the creative possibilities of that super-sensitive analog life-force that we call “film!” In this workshop we’ll cover all the bases before hitting the streets with our film of choice.
Begins @ 1pm – January 30th 2011
Cost: $10 (students $7). Includes a loaner camera and 1 free roll of Lomography film, or 50% off any 2 film rolls of your choice. All participants will receive a 10% coupon for the Lomography Gallery Store.

Everybody loves a cup of tea to start the day. Meanwhile, we lomographers love to do little photo sessions to start our day. Both are really fun, but a wise person once said that we should try to combine two of our favorite things sometimes and see how it comes out. So, here we go!
If you're the happy owner of a Lomo LC-Wide, you are probably overwhelmed and frustrated at not being able to use your three different frames on one film. But this tipster will let you make magic happen!
This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!
From having a close encounter with a mountain lion to accidentally meeting Steve Jobs, Joel Sax had experienced a number of unimaginable things that have granted him a deeper sense of understanding. Any amateur or longtime film photographer can definitely learn a thing about making the most out of one's skills and loving the art of photography from the wise words of our LomoGuru, emperornorton!
One of the best things about analogue photography is the unpredictability in the outcome of your photos. Make things a little more exciting by trying out an experimental film like the Adox Color Implosion for 35mm cameras!

If you think you have an answer when we reach the end, please do share it in the comments!
