RECAP: All About the Lomo LC-A Workshop @ Lomography gallery Store NYC Greenwich Village

1

On Saturday April 16th, we held a workshop about the classic Lomography camera: The LC-A! We were joined by a group of analog enthusiasts from the Film Photography Project.

The history and evolution of Lomography is directly linked to the history of the Lomo LC-A camera and in this workshop we overviewed the storied history of the two. After the twists and turns of history, we got into using the camera itself. We talked about the basic controls and settings and then moved along to a myriad of tips and tricks to make amazing Lomographs with the LC-A and all its accessories. After the presentation, attndees were allowed to borrow one of our LC-As and try it out for themselves. Fun was had a tons of analog photos were taken.

Big thanks to the Film Photography Project group for joining us! Be sure to check out their bi-weekly podcast. Launched in October of 2009, the Film Photography Podcast is a 90 minute, bi-weekly Internet radio program, exploring a wide range of topics relevant to the experienced and aspiring photographer using film as a medium.

    Fresh from the Lab: One Roll of Film and the Lubitel 166U

    Adi, Ekeu, and I did a lomowalk around downtown Bandung last Saturday, the beginning of November. We planned to use our Lubitel cameras with only one roll of film each. We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.
