Calling all San Francisco and New York City Lomographers!
Simultaneously, in both cities (well, 3-hours apart actually), we will be holding a meet-up at sunset in Dolores Park in SF and at Union Square Park in NYC. (Round-up begins at 7pm, but shooting will start when the sun goes down.)
The goal of the meet-up is to wander around in the evening darkness doing light-painting and long-exposure experiments! Lomography will be providing a limited number of loaner Diana+ cameras and film for the events (but please bring your own cameras if you can â€“ digital cameras are welcome for this event), and we will be awarding 5 Diana+â€™s in each city to the best 5 photos submitted afterwards. Photojojo will provide coupon vouchers for their shop to all who attend. And there is always the possibility that JPG will publish the best shot from the event in an upcoming issue (although this cannot be guaranteed at the moment).
JPG and Photojojo will be hosting the San Francisco event, and will have someone on hand to give a brief intro to light-painting that should get you started. I will be on hand at Union Square in NYC to do the same.
So come one, come allâ€¦ bring your fancy-pants digital cameras if you must, or better yet, kick it old-school analog with a Diana+, Colorsplash, Holga, or other film camera with a B setting. Donâ€™t forget to bring a flashlight, lighter, iPod, or glowstick, and use them to light up the town!
