For this tip you will need a black electrical tape, scissors for cutting the tape and your favorite 35mm frame format mask for your Diana F+
Start by attaching your 35mm back to your Diana F+, make sure that you do NOT have a frame format mask in place. Now place a strip of the tape across the middle of the opening spanning from left to right. Be sure to leave space at the top and bottom of the frame. Next add your favorite 35mm film and fire away. Keep in mind that only the top and bottom of the film will be exposed during your first round of shooting. Once the roll is finished rewind it and remove the black tape from the inside of the camera. Now find your favorite frame format mask and add it to your 35mm back. Time to load the film and shoot again!
My example shots only show one way to take advantage of this tip, buy you can enjoy the many combinations of tape and frame format masks to make this tip last a long time!
Double exposures are made for some serious analogue experiments. Put your cameras to double exposure hyperdrive with these out-of-this-world double exposures from the community shot with the Lomo Lubitel!
Exposing the film sprockets is one of the best ways to add a funky touch to your photos. However, this black and white landscape snapshot by mafiosa proves that these sprockets can give an elegant and classy feel, too!

Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
Shake well and apply to fabric. Blot out excess using a paper towel. Create your design using Inkofilm or anything that casts a shadow. Expose to sunlight or bright UV light for 10-20 minutes or until color reaches full saturation. Machine wash using Inkowash to remove unexposed dye. Double your exposure time in overcast weather. Enjoy the "wow" result!
Another quirky-looking analogue snapper from the 1990s, the all-automatic, all-white Olympus Ecru is certainly one of the most interesting and compact cameras you can add to your collection. Find out more about it in this installment of Lomopedia!

This August, we bring you back to your roots and explore the wonders of nature! First, we cook up a storm with a film soup experiment. Followed by nature photowalks at beautiful scenic parks in Singapore to unearth the tips & tricks of trouble exposure, as well as the unique methods to perfect our macro shots. To cap off the learning month, we'll gather on a cozy Friday night for a new special sharing series by the Lomography Community -- with Sharing Session #1: Nature.

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)!
