We here at the Lomography Gallery Store LA have gone completely bonkers and want to offer you Angelenos a chance to attend one of our world-renowned workshops EVERY DAY IN THE MONTH OF MARCH!
Not only that… but throughout the month we will be revealing the 10 Prophecies of Lomography. What pearls of wisdom will you behold while also learning a new camera, new technique, or venturing on a LomoJourney. Anyone who attends all Prophetic Workshops will receive a Diana F+ of their choice at the end of the month!
With a healthy mix of camera and technique workshop staples, we’ve added in a few new things as well!Tuesday, March 1, 2011; 2-4 pm: Diana F+

Cheer on the runners to help keep their spirits high and make some one-of-a-kind Lomographs as they speed through our sleepy West Hollywood neighborhood. A WORD OF WARNING, anyone living east of the Gallery Store should park south of Sunset Boulevard the night before, and west of the Gallery Store should park south of Santa Monica, if you want any chance of making it to the workshop in time! $10 gets you a loaner camera and 1 roll of film.
