Analogue Love: This entire holiday season, Lomography is celebrating our love for all things Analogue. From Analogue photography, to vinyl records, to abstract analogue concepts like love, dreams, passions and ideas. But for one special day, we’re going to have the ultimate Analogue workshop with tips, tricks, techniques and experiments into Analogue Photography. But that’s not all! We want you to join in as well! Bring in your photos, your favorite technique, that accidental masterpiece you can’t explain, or just show off that cool camera you found at the flea market! We’ll have warm drinks and cookies, and go shooting with the camera of your choice. We’ll share stories, swap film (and maybe even phone numbers) and rejoice in our love for Analogue! This workshop is FREE!
The Great Cross-Town Scavenger Hunt! An NYC photo-scavenger hunt analouge style! Come to the Gramercy store, sign up and break into teams. Each team gets a camera, film and a list of what must be photographed. Lomo your way to the finish line at the Greenwich Village shop where your team’s film will be processed on the spot! The first team to finish with all the qualifications wins a special gift! Cost is $15 per team, and includes 1 free roll of film + processing!
*Meet the Lomo LC-A+: Lomography has always been both an analogue photography movement, AND a social movement. Its greatest form of communication has been the photos taken by the Lomo LC-A. Lomographers around the world have been using this snapshot wonder to communicate through their photographs for years. In this workshop, discover the LC-A’s history from its early days as the Russian everyman camera, to when it became the spark that ignited the fire in the hearts of a million Lomographers around the world! Learn tips, tricks, and techniques of Lomography’s core camera.
*Spool is in Session: A Workshop about Film: Lomography cameras are the hardware of analogue photography, but film will always be the software. So how do you make sense of all the different film choices out there? There’s the eye-popping color explosion of cross-processed slide film – the delicate nuances of the finest color negative film – and the smooth grains of the classic black and white. Film offers the analog photographer so many choices, so many varying effects, and so many inspiring results that it helps to have a better understanding of all the creative possibilities of that super-sensitive analog life-force that we call “film!” In this workshop we’ll cover all the bases before hitting the streets with our film of choice. Cost $10 (students $7),
and includes a loaner camera and 1 free roll of Lomography film, or 50% off any 2 film rolls of your choice.
An Evening in Greenwich Village Walking Tour: Things always look a bit more magical at night. Join us as we explore the shadows of Greenwich Village. Borrow one of our cameras and load up on some fast film for color-dripping night shots galore! This workshop is free.
*Lubitel Lovers: Shooting with the Lubitel+ is different than anything you’ve experienced before. There’s just something about that plastic body; something about peering down through that waist-level viewfinder to size up your subject with the top lens and capture it through the crisp glass lens on the bottom. Join us for an intimate and comprehensive introduction to the Lubitel 166+ and its history, along with tips, tricks, and techniques that will turn you into a Lubitel Lover for life. A basic understanding of photography is helpful, but beginners are welcome!
*Adventures in Pinhole Lomography: Lens-less photography is as old-school as it gets, and Lomography is all about celebrating the limitless creativity of analogue pinhole photography. Join us for an introduction to shooting with pinhole, as we discuss the basics and history of lens-less photography. We will also explore the many pinhole camera options available at the Lomography Gallery Store, including the latest (and possibly most exciting) entry point to the pinhole universe, the Diana Multi Pinhole Operator. Bring your Diana Multi Pinhole Operator for free admission, or borrow a Diana+ camera and try out some pinhole experiments with hands-on guidance.

*Plastic Phantastic! Lomography’s plastic cameras are cornerstones of the analogue photography movement. From multi-lens marvels like the Actionsampler, Supersampler, Oktomat, and Pop 9, to the 170 degree-grabbing magic of the Fisheye and Fisheye 2 cameras, to the color-drenching awesomeness of the Colorsplash camera, Lomography’s plastic cameras are exciting creative tools that produce an incredible range of images. In this workshop we’ll discuss each of the plastic cameras and learn fun techniques and tricks that will open up a world of shooting possibilities.
