How about we

learn to frame creative photos — without Instagram filters — during an afternoon at Lomography.

On the date

  • You two will have spots at a Lomography workshop of your choosing.

  • You two will learn about this unique, experimental, spontaneous form of analogue photography.

  • Take your loaner Lomo cameras out onto the streets and shoot without inhibitions — wild and free.

  • You two will be mesmerized by the dreamy magic and surprises that are revealed in your pictures.

Built for two

Long before there were hipstamatic iPhone filters, different types of analogue cameras, lens, and film combinations produced results technology now reaches to imitate for an impatient world.

On this date, you two will get a lesson in creative lo-tech photography with the Lomography, the world’s leading advocates of a unique, spontaneous, and experimental method of taking pictures with analogue cameras.

Learn the basics, then forget the rules and head out into the cobbled streets of the West Village and shoot the world and each other from unusual angles. You’ll be surprised by the magical imagery your lens finds that no smartphone camera ever would.

One of a kind

At Lomography, there are no rules. Just point and shoot.

Made with love

The Lomography philosophy is summarized by its motto, "Don’t Think. Just Shoot."

In the early 90s a group of Austrian travelers came upon a small, enigmatic Russian camera, the Lomo LC-A. Mindlessly shooting their travels from odd angles, they were astounded by the images it produced – the colours were vibrant, with deep saturation and vignettes that framed the shot. The Lomography Society International was born, igniting a new style of artistic experimental photography.
