About This Class

Join Lomography's Antonio Castello for a jam-packed introduction to film photography and the quirky, pop style of Lomo analogue cameras.

This one-hour class breezes through the unbelievable history of Lomography, then launches into a hands-on introduction to Lomo's user-friendly cameras, selecting and loading film, and shooting in the heart of NYC. The final lessons go behind-the-scenes at the Lomo lab to show how film gets developed and watch prints come to life.

You'll learn exactly how to get started with film: the materials you need, principles for shooting, and tips for avoiding rookie mistakes. Everyone who wants more artistic and experimental images should take this class. It's especially ideal for mobile photographers eager to go beyond smartphones and digital photographers eager to learn more about film.

Your camera is an extension of you and your desires. Lomography is a part of life.

Excellent if you are really interested in analogue photography. Was a little beyond me but I did enjoy it.
