Diana Mini and Lomography CN 800 35mm Film

6

Is the day a bit overcast and gloomy? Are you not sure if the sun will poke its head out of the clouds? Are you using a fixed shutter-speed camera? Well, Lomography CN 800 35mm film is for you!

You know the days, they happen to everyone. You are all excited to take your favorite camera of choice (for me it’s my Diana Mini) and the day turns to be out gloomy, with the sun just a distant memory. What you need is the Lomography CN 800 35mm film .

Just think of bright popping colors, clear images, a bit of grain, and excellent speed for those action shots! Great for nature shots, and city shots when you never know when to expect shadows to get in the way of a good shot.

It is also a great film to pop in your camera when you aren’t sure of what the day will be like, or if you know you won’t be using the whole roll of film in one day. Lomography CN 800 is also great with flash at night time, especially color flash, giving knock out colors and strong highlights.

Lomography CN 800 35mm is a great choice of film if you are new to film photography, especially new to the Diana Mini, it means you don’t have to worry so much about underexposing shots and stressing out light and exposure.

This doesn’t mean you need to be shy and hide away from multiple exposures; just shoot on ‘sunny’ mode and then shoot again & your multiple exposures will end up nice & balanced. The same goes for endless panoramas, shoot forever on half-frame mode and your Lomography film will last and last and last!

The Lomography Color Negative 35mm 800 ISO film is a high-speed film designed to bring a burst of vibrant colour, as well as great saturation and contrast, in all lighting conditions! Shoot in bright sunshine, grey days, indoors or at night with a flash. See our selection of Lomography films here.

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
