To spice up shooting with the Diana F+, we decided to modify them by adding a mask over! And we had to use the Heart Mask as it is February and it is the month of love! Repeat after us: WE LOVE DIANA F+!
Last week’s Diana F+ workshop, conducted by Lawrence & Shareen, otherwise known as lawypop and quaisoir on Lomography, was a heartwarming prelude to Valentine’s Day as friends and couples came together to design their very own Diana F+ heart mask.
Dressed in their Sunday best, they got crafty with their hands, filling transparencies with sparkly shapes and bubbly borders, splotches of coloured hearts amidst smiles of pure saccharine.
With their Diana F+ all spruced up, they braved the heat and took a little stroll through the streets, sprinkling Ann Siang Hill with a swathe of hearts and draping the town in a dreamy mood of love.
Here’s Lawrence’s great Heart mask!
Such Amazing Talent!
Thank you Shareen & Lawrence for contributing and being such awesome community member! What do you think? We love to hear from you!
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.
As the weather warms up and the sun begins to shine, it's time to take your cameras off the shelf and into action. April is a special month because of Film Photography Day, marking a special date for us film photographers. We need you to help celebrate the wonders of film photography and keep the magic alive. #filmphotographyday2015

The season of love is upon us — chocolate hearts, crimson roses and overly priced greeting cards! Wait a second, that doesn’t sound right. Let’s try that again, ahem, “The season of love is upon us — sexy cameras, excellent accessories and sublime photos!” That’s more like it.
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.
September is almost here and we are determined to make the most of the summer while it hasn't ended. This coming month we have two LC-A+ workshops, a Sprocket Rocket workshop at the London Analogue Festival,and a Make your Own Camera Obscura Workshop.
Those long, frosty, dark nights are finally behind us. It's time to dust of your Diana F+; wipe down your LC-A Wide and get shooting again! Join us for some fabulous workshops and events in Soho and come and visit us in March at the Birmingham NEC as part of The Photography Show 2015. Read on for the full line up.
The Lomo'Instant camera is the most playful camera ever! It gives you so much freedom to create that we decided a single shot was not enough to show our frolicking scenes. So we went for collages instead! We moved the photos, juxtaposed and linked them to create our own instant puzzle! Take a glimpse at the results!
The Lomography Sprocket Rocket - my first analogue camera ever - and I have had some troubled times behind us. We have been involved in a stormy love-hate relationship for several years. But in the end, we luckily managed to get over ourselves and overcome our problems. Now he's my old time favorite. Old love never rusts, that is.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Not knowing exactly how to do deal with its odd appearance, Nadica first regarded the Lubitel 166B as a complete monstrosity. She left it untouched on her shelf for months after receiving it as a gift. After using other Lomo cameras and getting familiar with the rules on exposure, she finally had the courage to test it. Find out what made stacy_mcpommes fall in love with the Lubitel 166B in this installment of Weapon of Choice!
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In February, I wanted to take one of those long exposure night shots of traffic. You know the type: nighttime cityscape, with bright red and white stripes where traffic passes. I love those shots, but I had never gotten around taking one.
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
