When I got my Diana F+ CMYK, I knew there where miniature keychains of the Lomography camera's I wished there was a CMYK keychain. But alas, back when I got my full size camera, there was only the normal Diana as a Mini, much to my disappointment. BUT! About a month ago this all changed!
As soon as I saw that there was a keychain available in the online store that was a 20% copy of my own delicious camera I knew I had to have one. My big bulky colorful Diana needed a little mate to accompany me when she wouldn’t be able to go with me!
I was very happy when the little camera arrived. Okay, it’s not a fully functional one, but it’s pretty darn close to the real deal! Only shrunken down to 20% size! Now, what to do with this finely detailed keychain! I took a close look and it really is a great little version of my CMYK keychain. When I put the two together you can see how much effort went into getting the details right! The colors are close (not an exact match, but very close) and the lens and such really do look like the real deal.
I decided to attach the little camera to the bag that I had made recently. Combining my love for crochet and photography again. It’s a lot of analogue loving with me!
I also really liked the canister it came in. Ideal for transporting a roll of film or to save some little bits and pieces in. Right now, I save my daily medication in there.
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.
Sometimes when taking pictures I get addressed by strangers either because of my cameras or because they don't want me to shoot something they claim they have responsibility for. But having the police on my back was a new experience.
I love the different styles of cameras that Lomography has, but I also like to create my own cardboard cameras that use pinholes to be able to take pictures using traditional film. This time I created the Pinhole F, a camera inspired by the Diana F+ and shoots 12 pinhole photos using 120 film.
I have been using the Diana extensively for the past two years. It was actually the camera that got my into film photography (something that I am so grateful for). So I have compiled a list of Diana tips for y’all…
Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
"Magical" here means that every time I use the Diana F+, the results are always beyond both my expectations and imagination. That's why I always use it when I feel like doing something different. It has never failed me since day one; I even always bring this camera during my trips!
Lomography UK was lucky enough to test an LC-A 120 prototype in store and it was glorious! We used colour and black and white film to capture the camera at its finest. It was everything you would expect from the LC-A but in full frame 38mm f/4.5 120 film. It's LOVE.
Of course, Italy makes a great destination for taking photos. But what if there was a place where you could find stunning motifs, impressive colors, and the ideal mixture of nature and arts all at once? What if I told you that there is a place like that: a garden full of art in the middle of nowhere?
Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!
I was very excited when Lomography announced the Lomo'Instant Kickstarter project. I love instant photography since I can share the happiness instantly with my friends. Although I already have an Instant camera, I could not resist getting a Lomo'Instant White Edition on Kickstarter!
