We’ve even got the Planet Earth series playing all night! Of course, there is food for both herbivores and carnivorous creatures alike. Not to mention a flowing watering hole.
We’ve got plenty of goodies to satisfy that animal hunger. Come hang out and let’s let the wild rumpus begin! For more wild nights, be sure to join us every month for events and workshops.

At first, Skyler only visited the Lomography website to take a look at sample photographs taken with different point-and-shoot cameras. Seeing the immense focus given by the community to film photography and experimentation, two things she absolutely loves, she immediately signed up and started her own LomoHome. In this interview, she talks about her go-to camera, the difference between digital and film photography and more.
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
Creating a movie, no matter how short it is, requires a certain amount of discipline. For it to be coherent, one must keep his focus throughout the entire process - from shooting the scenes to editing the clips. With that, we are truly grateful for the effort that these lomographers put into making these LomoKino movies.
Originally trained as a classical scholar, Arnold Genthe was a self-taught photographer famous for, to name a few, his photographs of San Francisco's Chinatown in the early 1900s, autochromes, and portraits which included famous individuals, dancers, and women with his beloved pet, Buzzer the cat.
Because here’s the thing about film photography that I doubt a digital camera can give you: Permanence, photographs that truly and literally stay with you, not just in a physical form but also in your head and in your heart.
