The sky was clear, the sun was shining and birds were chirping creating a perfect day for our Double Exposure Film Swap workshop.
On Sunday the 29th of May, the lomography Gramercy store held the Double exposures Film swap! We had four eager Lomographers turn up (a perfect number for our film swap!). They paired up and were ready to start shooting.
The workshop went through different aspects of the company, different cameras…and most importantly how to double expose. The Lomographers used a variety of cameras; the Diana Mini, Diana F+ and the LC-A+, making it an interesting film swap.
After the workshop, we all headed out to Madison Square park, where we soon realized summer had really arrived! The park was full of people, music, art setting up amazing double exposure shots.
All and all the workshop was a complete success and I know that our Lomographers are confident at double exposing.
St. George's Day was sunny and full of energy this year. A group of Morris dancers graced us with their presence around Soho, and we took the chance to do an impromptu shoot with our favorite cameras just outside the Lomography Gallery Store!
As the weather warms up and the sun begins to shine, it's time to take your cameras off the shelf and into action. April is a special month because of Film Photography Day, marking a special date for us film photographers. We need you to help celebrate the wonders of film photography and keep the magic alive. #filmphotographyday2015

Say goodbye to October and hello to November. The weather is getting colder but we have a bunch of workshops that will keep you warm! We have a lot in store for us, from a walk in the park with the Petzval to creating light painting masterpieces.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Here at the Lomography NYC Gallery Store, we are always testing and playing with our cameras and accessories. We asked our staff to test the new Lomo'Instant camera. Liz, our lab assistant, went crazy with the long exposure future.
April is going to be packed with cool workshops and events for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day and Film Photography Day. We’ve also been working with Treehouse Hawaii on a film swap and Jones Soda on a photo contest, and we’re going to be showcasing the photos at an awesome event at the store!
This August, we bring you back to your roots and explore the wonders of nature! First, we cook up a storm with a film soup experiment. Followed by nature photowalks at beautiful scenic parks in Singapore to unearth the tips & tricks of trouble exposure, as well as the unique methods to perfect our macro shots. To cap off the learning month, we'll gather on a cozy Friday night for a new special sharing series by the Lomography Community -- with Sharing Session #1: Nature.
Join us for an evening with NYC-based fashion photographer Emily Soto. Concurrent with her exhibition at our Gallery Store, "Petzval Portrats: Bloom," Emily will discuss her work and experience using the New Petzval Art Lens in her work. Gather insight into the creative process of one of New York's favorite photographers. This event will take place on July 9 at 6:00 p.m.
About two years ago, sandkorn sent me this film for our doubles. She said that she had already exposed this film using the Horizon Perfekt and shot on a sunny day, so the idea was for me to not overexpose the film. The result was so red!
Ed Choi regards Lomography as one of the best things that happened to him. In this interview, the latest member to join the roster of LomoGurus talks about how cross processing slide films sparked a great friendship, taking instant photos in Himalayas, and creating the perfect double exposure photograph.
