This past Saturday, Young Artists participated in a photography workshop with the Lomography Gallery Store of Austin. Lomography is a photographic process using plastic analog cameras to render a picture with vignettes, colored hues, and a soft focus around the edges. The students began the day learning about the history of Lomography, the basic operations of the camera, as well as a fantastic introduction to photography.
The group then hit the streets to experiment with this new device. The students were encouraged to be quick, shoot on impulse, and to shoot from the hip. This challenged our young artists to incorporate the camera into their walk, rather than allowing the camera to become a barrier between themselves and what they were seeing. The students had a fantastic time with this process and are very excited to see how their prints came out. This wonderful session could not have been possible without Lomography’s great team!
Below are pictures from the workshop:
