Use film canisters to create a splitzer for your DianaF+.
What you need:
Black film canister
First, cut the black film canister in half
Then, measure around 1cm from the mouth of the film canister. Use the rubber as a marker. Cut smile strips from where you first cut the canister up to the rubber marker (see photo), so you can easily create a 1cm splitzer. Finally, cut the canister cover in half (much better if you have the black canister cover).
And now you have a DIY Splitzer from empty film canister:
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.
Many photographers who still shoot film for their commercial and personal projects usually use instant photography for portraiture, but an Italian photographer made use of Polaroids to create a series that challenges viewers to seek their connection with nature.
Photos shot with a New Petzval lens are immediately recognizable for their super-sharp focus areas and wonderful swirly bokeh effect. Each New Petzval lens is crafted from brass (just like the original Petzval lens) and features premium glass optics. Together with Lomography, the lenses have been designed and constructed by a team of optics specialists at the Zenit factory in Russia. Zenit are master lens manufacturers and have the skill to build the Petzval lens for use with today’s SLR cameras.
Julian Hand is a film artist and visual projectionist for our latest LomoAmigos The Oscillation. He uses traditional analogue techniques to create swirling, trippy and beautifully tactile films and light shows. He uses Super 8 film, coloured inks, washing up liquid, soap and acetate to create these images and visuals. He embraces all things analogue! I brought an LC-A+, some 1600 ISO film and captured him at work.
The great American photographer David Burnett is famous for his unusual photos of sports competitions. He uses a tilt-shift lens to create miniature fakes, or a simple Holga camera to shoot in black and white. To write this tribute, I used my Holga to take some pictures of amateur sport activities around my city. Take a look after the jump.
