Want to develop and print your own black and white film? Leicester Lo-Fi are running a course to do just that. It's on two Sunday afternoons, 21st & 28th July. The first Sunday is shooting and developing your film in Leicester, the second Sunday is printing in a darkroom in Derby. The cost is £50 per person, and is limited to 5 people. If you don't have a film camera, one can be borrowed, and all materials are included in the price.
Club Club: Minecraft Meetup
Saturday, May 18, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM
The mild mannered Leicester Lo-fi blokes will be there with their Origami Pinhole Kits - so you can make your own camera, take a photo and develop it. There's a whole range of other al day and timed activities, so you can drop by for a while or stay all afternoon.
How d'ya fancy building an origami camera, then taking a picture with it? You can at Lo-Fi:DIY. There's lots of fun to be had with DIY photography.

Leicester Lo-Fi @ Hijacked III, Derby Quad/Silk Mill
Well last Friday saw us take our Kamra-e-faore. (Did we mention we were building one?) To the Silk Mill in Derby for the opening night of their Hijacked exhibition. We went down very well indeed and from the moment we got there we were taking portraits non stop, until the security guys were herding people through the door.

Welcome to Leicester Lo-Fi Photography.
We’re a small group of Leicester based photographers that embrace the traditional aspects of photography by using old film cameras, toy cameras, pin holes, alternative processes and darkroom printing etc. We hope to have regular meet ups to swap ideas, take pictures, make prints, set projects and hold exhibitions.
We can run customised workshops for small groups or individuals, including, darkroom, pinhole, sunprints, Kamra-e-faoree (camera and darkroom in one as used on the streets of Afganistan) and more
