The Diana Instant Back+ is the one "thing" that up lifts my daily life with unexpected surprises in its most retro & messy way! :)
I’m the type of person that gets bored of anything i do very easily… even with people i meet at times. So my good friend decided to end my boredom misery by giving me the Diana F+ together with the Diana Instant Back+ as a Christmas present last year 08. I must say, that was the BEST present anyone could ever give me. Being it cheap & plastic, but it meant the world to me until this very day. It fulfilled my curiosity.. gave me unexpected surprises.. though at times it gives me blank shots but its okay, it takes time to get to know your baby, no? :)
If there was a profession as a Lomographer (does this even exist?) i would invest all my money into it to be an awesome Lomographer! I’m still very new at this, hence my photography skills as u can see :P but i will improve & get better in time. I’ll never trade my besty Diana+ for anything else in the whole world!
Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.
I love my Diana, but framing can be trying at times, especially with the Instant Back which takes you 5cm away from the viewfinder peep hole. I found a way to make framing with the Diana more pleasant.
Put your visuals in reverse gear and go way back to the hip ‘60s with this retro number from Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. Flower garlands, patches, tie-dyes and bell bottom trousers are most welcome.

One of the great things about photography is that we can look at the world and preserve that image on print instead of just looking at it again and again in our heads. Also, we can create a world as we’d like it to be – with everything just the way we like them.
Aside from the Magazine, going through the User Blogs is another way to keep tabs on the latest happening in the community.

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!
The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."
