Hi Tamara!

Tell us a quick something about yourself. How old are you? Where are you from? What’s your background?

Hello to you! I am 27, I was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but my education background comes from Italy. I studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna.

What did you have for breakfast today?

I didn’t have it yet, but every day I have a big cup of coffee and cereal. I recommend Knusperli :)

Can you tell us something about the inspiration behind your La Sardina DIY? Is that you on the front of the camera?

Well, I actually for years drew the same kind of comics while I was still studying. Now I only remembered how much I liked them. I could say that there is always a bit of me in those characters :)

What is the girl on the design listening to?

This:

Cold War Kids – Hang Me Up to Dry

If you had another La Sardina DIY, how would you design it? What would you use?

I would maybe use only black and white, much more characters, but the same style of comics :)

Any tips for someone who doesn’t know where to start with theirs?

Well, my advice is to draw first on a paper – so you have more possibilities and it’s easier after to choose. The colors that I used are permanent markers. If you have normal markers, you can use a transparent nail polish to fix it after.

And a most important thing – draw something that is really yours, your camera is like your tattoo, you don’t want something that you’ll be get bored after some time.

With the new La Sardina DIY Edition you can have it all your own way! Put your artistic talent to good use and decorate it any way you want. Thanks to the interchangeable panels and special ink permeable material, letting your imagination loose on the La Sardina DIY couldn’t be more fun!

    My Pinhole F Cardboard Camera Inspired By the Diana F+ Camera

    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.

    Monday Moodboard: DIY 6x17 Medium Format Panoramic Camera

    Judging by the design alone, this panoramic camera looks every bit the panoramic camera it says it is. What's special about it is not the fact that it shoots on 120 film, but rather it was handmade at a home workshop.
