As we all know Sunday 26th of June was easily the hottest day of the year so far, but more importantly it was the Sprocket Rocket Workshop at the Science Museum. We all ploughed through the sweltering heat on the underground and tested our cameras out in the sunshine as we made our way to the museum to take the rocket home!
The Science Museum was full of strange and unusual objects and it even had its own air conditioning (YEY!)
We tested our cameras to the limit – shooting planes, planets, space rockets and old cars. Using colour gels on the flash and shooting lovely long exposures (using the B setting) in the dark eerie neon corners.
The Sprocket Rocket was definitely in it’s element…. it had returned home!
Most of us captured the human cockroaches scuttling around beneath us and some of us attracted quite a lot of attention from onlookers, all keen to find out more about our cameras.
Nathan, our youngest member of the workshop team celebrated his 12th birthday and by the end of the day he declared “I definitely want a sprocket rocket now!”, which is proof that you don’t need to be a Rocket Scientist to love Lomography!
Hope you had a happy birthday, Nathan!
