We’ve got a great month of workshops and events planned for the month of August. The perfect way to end this beautiful summer in Chicago! So grab your cameras (or borrow from us) and let’s take some pictures!
Sunday August 10th @ 2pm – Fun with Color Filters
Learn how to take your pictures to a new and colorful level! We’ll show you how to make your normal pictures look crazy and colorful using the La Sardina and different colored gel filters. We’ll even give you tips on how to make your own color filters! After the presentation we’ll give you a roll of film and you’ll be able to go out and shoot using your new filters.
$12 to rent a La Sardina
$5 if you bring your own La Sardina
Sunday August 17th @ 2pm – Diana Instant Back
We’re going to teach you everything you need to know about the Diana Instant Camera! There are a few important things that you need to do before shooting with the Instant Back, so we’ll show you how to make sure your camera is on the right settings in order to take great photos with this fun and unique camera. This workshop is free and cameras will be provided, but you must buy your own Instax Mini film from us before the workshop.
Sunday August 24th 2-5pm – Xpro at the Beach!
Summer is coming to a close so we’re taking this workshop to the North Avenue Beach! Learn about cross processing, aka xpro, while soaking in the rays at the beach. We’ll then give you a roll of film and you’ll have a few hours to wander the beach and shoot. Meet us at the northeast corner of North Ave. & Clark at 2pm (by the fountain) and we’ll go from there! Prepay on our website or in store to secure your spot.
$20 to rent an LC-A+ (prepay only – limited cameras available)
$15 to rent a La Sardina
$10 if you bring your own Lomography camera
Saturday August 30th @ 2pm – Last Saturday Photo Walk
Come make new friends at our recurring Last Saturday Photo Walk. This is not a workshop, but more of a community meet and greet. You can borrow a camera for this photo walk, or you can bring your own. Meet some friends, or come alone. Share tips and tricks, and meet your fellow community members. All photographers are welcome! Make friends and take pictures!
Workshops don’t include the price of processing
