summer of analogue
Summer is fast-approaching, the days getting a little longer and the weather a little (well, a lot) hotter. It’s the perfect time to brush up on your analogue photography skills to capture your summer adventures, your friends and family or just walks exploring around town with new techniques and new camera formats.
To help with your journey, The Lomography Austin store (located on South Congress just two blocks from the Capitol) is offering a full schedule of photography classes during the month of June. All workshops include a loaner camera, instructional lecture and a roll of film.
So put down your digital camera — or more likely your iPhone and Instagram — pick up one of Lomo's cameras and let your creativity fly.
