Long Exposures From a Train Window

4

This is a quick tip to remember when traveling on a train with your Diana F+ (or other cameras that allow you to do long exposures). Don't forget to press the button a couple of seconds!

On my birthday last December 28, I traveled in AVE (High Speed Train) from Madrid to Barcelona to celebrate with horaciorv. I took the trip to do long exposures through the window of the train with my Diana F+.

Madrid – Barcelona.

I love these kinds of photos!! How did I do them? So easy!

  • Bulb mode in the camera, B mode
  • Aperture in “cloudy”
  • Distance in infinite
  • Time: two or three seconds

This trick is very very easy, you only have to remember it and test it when you travel by train.

Londres – Brighton.

Lomo On!

The Diana F+ is a new twist on the ‘60s classic cult camera. Famous for its dreamy and soft-focused images, the Diana F+ is now packed with extra features such as panorama and pinhole capabilities. Available in our Online Shop.

Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
