LomoMatrix Caracas

6

It was a beautiful Saturday morning in sunny Caracas when the Lomographic Community in Venezuela had a blast during the first LomoMatrix ever made in the country. Have a look at the final video!

November 5, 2011 was the day we – “Los LomoLocos”, the Lomographic Community in Venezuela, gathered loaded with masks, bikes, hats and umbrellas at the first Lomomatrix Caracas. From the early morning, the lomographers arrived at one of the gardens of one of the most important universities in the city (UCV) to face the very hot sun and fire those lomographs! LC-A, Diana, Diana Mini, Holga 135BC, Colorsplash, Splitcam and Fisheye were some of the Lomo cameras we used along with other analog cameras we love.

I started the day shooting some portraits of my lomo amigos holding letters signs for LomoMatrix Caracas:

Then I shot a couple of candid photos to back my gallery. Below are some of the shots I got! (the ones where I appear – the lady in the red dress – were taken by one of my friends):

After we had all the negatives developed, my friend erikazambrano (co-producer of the Lomomatrix) got them scanned. When we got them I spent a couple of nights organizing all the shots and then trying to imagine a story for the video. Meanwhile, my friend Carolina got the perfect song for the video: “Abriendo Los Ojos”, by the Venezuelan musician Dolli (listen to his music), who is also a friend of mine and gave us permission to use his song! My friend Diego shot the videos and all I had to do was to put everything together -first video I ever did! We also had a competition (the winners won a couple of Lomography keychains) and a special projection at one of the most important photography schools in Caracas – La Escuela Foto Arte. I hope everyone liked it because we put heart into it!

So here it is for you to enjoy!

    Caleb Savage: Into the Darkroom, Out in the Open

    When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
