The Lomographic Society has announced the Lomography School, promising an “analog education like never before.” For film photographers, especially beginners, it can be challenging to find the resources they need to learn about all aspects of analog photography and Lomography. The Lomo School delivers “everything from the analog basics to exciting experimental techniques” in one place.
The Lomographic Society started more than 30 years ago when a group of “happy-go-lucky” and “unruly” students joined to support each other’s creative photography endeavors. That idea expanded into the vast Lomography community of today, including Lomography’s various products, its magazine, competitions, and photo-sharing tools. Lomography’s shop includes a wide range of films, cameras, lenses, and accessories for analog photographers.
The new Lomo School takes the idea of supporting and supplying analog photographers to the logical next step, providing an educational resource that tackles film photography topics from the basic to the very advanced.
“This new section of our website is aimed at anyone and everyone with a passion for analog. Whether they’re someone who’s never touched a film camera before, someone who likes the look of Lomography but has no idea where to start, or an experienced film photographer looking to get more creative – everyone is welcome at the Lomography School,” explains the Lomographic Society.
Featured topics include multiple exposure photography, instant photography, film photography basics, film scanning, and different types of film. Many topics are available in the Lomo School, but if photographers can’t find what they’re looking for, they’re invited to email [email protected] to ask their “most burning questions.”
The Lomography School will grow and expand over time based on feedback. Lomography also hopes its new school will be an interactive space that provides analog photographers of all skill levels the tools they need to grow as artists and creators.
The Lomography community is already one million strong, and the new school will likely spurn new growth.
Film photographers are welcome to explore the new Lomography School and research nearly any topic concerning analog photography equipment and techniques. The resource is free for all users.
