Summer Fun! Light Leaks Workshop


A little bit of extra light never hurt anybody; In fact, it usually adds interest and unpredictability to your photos! Join Lomo celebrity Elena Kulikova at the Lomography Gallery Store San Francisco, whose images have been featured on product packages as well as the Diana F+ book, as she teaches you about light leaks and how to make the most out of the sunshine.

What: Summer Fun! Light Leaks Workshop
Technique or Tipster: Modify your cameras and film to add extra light to your images!

We love warm summers, bright days and the lo-fi, dreamy images that we can get when we go shooting. The occasional lens flare and light leak serve to enhance our photos, and we’re always thrilled to have them pop up. Rather than waiting for them to show up on their own, let’s modify our cameras to let in just the right amount of extra light! Elena will show you just what to do to get some extra bursts of red and blue light, streaks that sneak in from the corners of your camera. Bring a spare camera that you don’t mind tampering with!
