Everyone’s A Photographer: Opening Party Recap

Lomo Event LA 29

Full house at Lomography’s space right on Santa Monica Blvd.

Friday, November 2nd I had the privilege of hosting a group photo show titled “Everyone’s A Photographer” at the Lomography Gallery Store in Los Angeles as the winner of their “Win Your Dream Space” competition. Long story short, Lomography offered up their different gallery stores all over the world to whoever came up with the best idea how to utilize each space for an entire month. And I was lucky enough to win their LA location with this photo show I dreamed up involving a group of California-based friends that I have personally been influenced by creatively.

Rip Curl Lomo Fisheye 2

A little while back the friendly people at Rip Curl sent me their Lomography Fisheye camera to try out. The thing is pretty interesting with it’s 170-degree view of the world. So I took it around with me everywhere I went for a while and if the opportunity presented itself I would snap a photo. It was nice shooting film again, it’s been a while, and it is so much more rewarding when you have to go through a whole process just to produce the photo. You also learn to appreciate the imperfections of film when we now live in a digital world where photos come out perfect (in a sense) and we have to do post work to make it look imperfect. Anyway, here are some shots from my first roll I shot with the thing… with the Lomography Color Negative 400 35mm film. Now I know what my life would look like if I lived in a fish bowl.

If you wanna try one of for yourself you can buy them off of the Lomography site. More of my photos from the camera after the jump.
