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.

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. 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)!
