Despite the uncharacteristically rainy weather that night, LA Lomographers came out to welcome La Sardina Splendour to Tinseltown in style!
We shifted gears Thursday evening and turned on our favorite big band hits from the 40s. With classic gin martinis and whiskey sours at the bar, it wasn’t hard to settle in to party mode. There were saddle oxfords, three piece suits, classy hairstyles, and a lovely lady in a gown that looked like it came straight out of Rita Hayworth’s dressing room.
Everyone headed upstairs to take advantage of the free swing dancing lesson provided by (insert dancers names here). After some instruction, we let everyone loose to try out their swigin’ moves.
With it’s hammered aluminum sheen and matte black accents, La Sardina Splendour fit right in! Check out some of our candid shots below.
We chatted with LA based alternative rock outfit Night Riots after they recently tested the Lomo'Instant Wide. Their photos are moody and atmospheric, just like they describe their musical style, and we were delighted to hear that they share a love for analog magic and happy accidents.

At the dawn of the night, there came bright lights. The city is one spacious dancing place, and it's time to bust those moves and shake off the daytime tension. Every night could be disco night as you blare out those flashes and cameras. The world is your dance floor.

By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.

London based photographer Leung-Kit specialises in fashion and portrait photography. With his skills in a soft and gentle style of photography, we decided he would be the perfect person to test out the Daguerreotype Achromat Lens.
We gave Nilipek., who won a spot in our hearts with her incredibly cute tone of voice, joyous melodies with her ukulele and a naturally friendly style a clean and pure La Sardina DIY for her to design and take photos with. She became our LomoAmigo and agreed to a little chat with us.
