Lomography Australia / NZ is proud to present an exhibition of selected photographic prints collected from 35 photographers Australia-wide who utilise a range of Lomography film cameras and techniques. Discover the Lomography photographer’s view on Melbourne and Victoria, with a blend of urban, suburban and rural work that ties together the beauty not only of Melbourne but also the state as a whole.
We’ll also be having workshops, a POP UP Project Store and also a DIY station where you can personalise your own Lomography La Sardina camera. For more information follow Lomography Australia/NZ on facebook or visit www.lomography.com.au.
I will be gallery sitting the exhibition for the entire 2 weeks it is running, along with running a Lomography POP UP shop in the gallery space & running Lomography workshops.
The workshops I will be running include Introduction to Lomography; Fisheye 1, 2 & Baby Fisheye; Diana F+, Diana Mini & Baby Diana; Light Painting & Multiple Exposures; and finally a Lomography Melbourne Night Walk. Pop on over to the Lomography Workshops website to book, since spaces are limited.
I can't wait to meet all the Melbourne Lomographers who come to the exhibition & those who have work included, so come by & say hello!

LC-Wide x Fisheye 2 (Lomography 800CN film)
On Saturday morning there was a brief, yet exciting few hours of sunshine here in Melbourne... so out I went with my LC-Wide & recently borrowed Fisheye 2... one swapped double exposed film later & I'm super happy with my results... I love experimenting with double exposures & I think I will really learn to love the Fisheye 2.
I love how well the two very different lens of the LC-Wide & Fisheye 2 complement each other & give different angles... I will most definitely be using this combination of cameras again very soon. I also love how forgiving the 800 speed film can be, without too much grain... I look forward to maybe even giving some xpro a go next time on this little doubles combination.
I love walking the streets of Fitzroy, if for nothing else than the awesome old cars that you see around the place... I'm always a sucker for a cute old car & a bit of lane way street art... oh & don't forget the occasional (done too much these days) feet shot.
Come on Melbourne sunshine, stay just a little longer?

(1 -3) LC-A (Lomography 50-200 Redscale) & (4 -5) LC-Wide (Fuji Sensia 100)
During the winter months in Melbourne, the light isn't ideal for film photography... especially in the city. So when a friend suggested we go for a wine tour of the Yarra Valley, I was all ears. It rained for most of the day of our tour, but thanks to my LC-A & LC-Wide there were still plenty of photos to be taken. It's so lovely to visit the countryside, it make me miss Queensland a little,with all of it's wide open spaces & fresh air.
Just a little reminder to those of you who have taken photos with Lomography cameras (including Holgas) anywhere in Victoria, you still have time to submit them into the Vignetting Victoria Exhibition that will be running in September at the No Vacancy Project Space in Federation Square. The deadline is midnight tonight August 3rd... so quick sticks! You can see all the submission & exhibition details at Vignetting Victoria.
