On Saturday April 16th, we held a workshop about the classic Lomography camera: The LC-A! We were joined by a group of analog enthusiasts from the Film Photography Project.
The history and evolution of Lomography is directly linked to the history of the Lomo LC-A camera and in this workshop we overviewed the storied history of the two. After the twists and turns of history, we got into using the camera itself. We talked about the basic controls and settings and then moved along to a myriad of tips and tricks to make amazing Lomographs with the LC-A and all its accessories. After the presentation, attndees were allowed to borrow one of our LC-As and try it out for themselves. Fun was had a tons of analog photos were taken.
