Lomo Lubilel

Quite some time ago I picked up an old Lubital on e bay really cheep, it's a lovely thing and even has it's original case. It arrived and seemed to be in full working order, the only problem is the I have no idea how to use a medium format twin lens camera! So a few weeks ago I went on a little course at the london Lomo shop/gallery for there Lubitel 166+ and although mine is much older they work the same. 

The course includes the use of a camera for the evening and a film, plus a discount on the processing. The people at the gallery were lovely, and gave us a little lesson in the basics of the camera and the sent us out into the surrounding areas to have a play.  

It was dark and don't think I quite got my light settings right but it gave me the confidence to have a go.  Feel free to go over to my flickr and have a look at more.

Wonderful Working Women

Sunday I went to the second meeting of Wonderful Working Women organised by ReeRee Rockette. We all met at Proud Camden. 
The idea is for women at various stages of setting up there own business to meet up and network and share experiences and ideas. 
Everyone there was lovely and I'd encourage any lady at any stage of trying to set yourself up to come along as it's a fun afternoon as well as being helpful. 

 Hear are some pics of the lovely ladies that attended.

As usual I arrived with a small box of hats for trying on but forgot my camera so I've stolen these pics from ReeRee blog post.
