Lens O' the Irish: St. Patrick's Day with Lomography SF

2012-03-26

In San Francisco, St. Patrick’s Day means having a ton of fun, and Lomographers in San Francisco know just how to do that! We thought we’d take the chance to enjoy some of the festivities here in the city, so we held a workshop and set out to the St. Patty’s Day Parade with all of our favorite analogue snappers!

We’re grateful to have a great local film community, including Lomographers from the city as well as traveling international students and tourists in town for the weekend! A mixture of all ages and backgrounds joined us for a quick workshop featuring the Sprocket Rocket; Panoramics are the perfect way to capture large crowds!

We learned all about the how to get great multiple exposures and how to have fun shooting from the hip! Equipped with the ultra-colorful Superpop Sprocket Rocket editions, everyone was just as colorful as the parade itself. San Francisco always comes makes for a very interesting crowd, and today the community braved the threat of rain to come out and celebrate!

The photo walk was a blast as usual, and we’re looking forward to the next one. Hopefully, we’ll be seeing YOU in our store sometime soon! Join us for more workshops next month and keep an eye out for all our upcoming events!

All workshops include instructional lecture, loaner camera, and one free roll of film. Bring your own Lomographic camera for 50% off admission! Save $1 off your admission fee for each friend you bring to attend the workshop with you!

Workshops are $10 ($7 for students) unless otherwise noted. Workshop admission includes a free roll of film and a loaner camera if applicable. All participants will receive a 10% coupon for the store! All workshops have limited space. To sign up please ask a staff member in the store or email store.sanfrancisco@lomography.com

    LomoLocations: Reno, Nevada

    In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.

    Estonian Intersections of Sight and Sound

    Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? As photographers, we might choose the latter without a second thought, especially while viewing the festival photos that photographer Mart Vares captured with the New Petzval 85 Lens. Still, who doesn’t love the pleasant mechanical shutter sound of an old SLR that makes us commit to analog photography? While following the Nordic delegation at this years Waves Central Europe, we caught up with the Estonian band, Würffel, whose songs leave us feeling equally delighted.

    Lomo In-Depth: The Defining Role of Women Photographers in Art History

    It is general knowledge that history—ruled and written by austere patriarchy—has not been so kind to women. Photography is one of the rare exceptions; womankind has set its pervading presence and participation in photography since the birth of the camera in the 1800's. Lomography traces the role of women in photography with a special, comprehensive summary for International Women's Day.

    Against The Sun: Shapes in Contre-jour

    The brighter the sun, the larger the cast of the shadows. Contre-jour, however, does not rely on the shadow, but the figure itself. This photographic technique is used to create stark silhouettes of the subject with the help of direct natural light. Gladly, the Lomographic community has plenty of elegant images in contre-jour. We gathered our favorites.

    Eugenia Loli's Surreal Collages

    In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.
