Liverpool Lomo Meetup in February

38

It has been a long time since I harassed all you Northern Lomo geeks for a meetup so I feel that now would be a suitable time to get on it. Let’s do Liverpool in February.

Credits: kneehigh85

So, as I stated in my blog entry recently “I have forgotten what you all look like”, and I can’t really remember the last proper meet up we had here in the North of England. Well I can, it was Blackpool in June. Anyway, after putting the feelers out people seem to have decided that February in Liverpool would be a good idea. I therefore think we should all meet in Liverpool Lime Street station at 12pm on Saturday 22 February. The National Rail website doesn’t exactly make it clear but there appears to be a pub so I guess we congregate in there initially.

If there is anyone from Liverpool who could actually show us around and that kind of thing then please come forward as I know very very little about the place! If anyone has any further comments or suggestions then feel free to leave a comment below this article. And invite newbies along as we don’t want our group size to dwindle – I am aiming for at least 15 people present this trip.

Thanks for reading and I hope to see all of you there.

    Hey y'all, is this still going down, I'm from Liverpool and would love to walk around with some other lomographers. I don't do much Lomo here, the development is terribad here, but I'm more keen to bring the Holga out and meet new people :)

    Hey @spudhead1uk I am trying to figure out if we should continue to Liverpool as planned (maybe just in one car though so we can all chip for petrol). There is me, you, Adam and Lou coming from here. Also @marthasmarvels and @pigdog are coming but obviously as they are Yorkshire based then they could do somthing local. Then there is @petecarr and @mike-brits who are both in liverpool so it would be nice to meet them if they are deffo planning to come with. Also I haven't had a reply from @jennysparkle (get your arse in gear lady!) to see if her and her fella are coming too. Can anyone help me formulate a plan ASAP!

    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.

    What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

We tweeted about her new album and she responded to say that she loved Lomography. It was the perfect opportunity for a shoot and an interview.

Could these milestones have anything to do with our mystery product?
