Diana+ Pinhole-Multi Operator : The First Roll

6

I just started to use this simple yet brilliant camera, but I will talk about my first experience using the Diana Multi Pinhole Operator. The first roll seems to be history to many Lomographers including me, so this time let me tell you about how amazing this camera is!

First shot from the first roll

Where to begin? Oh yes, I remember about one year ago I was browsing through the photos section on Lomography then I stumbled upon this square format Lomograph. I was like “this photo is so great!”, with all the beautiful blur going on here and there, you can almost feel you are in the photo itself!

Little brother and I

The photo was taken Tat) using the Diana Multi Pinhole Operator. How could that camera result an image like that? I was asking myself at that time then after seeing all of his photos using Diana Multi Pinhole Operator, I promised to myself that I will buy the camera one day!

@instaxshop

Very very inspired by Tat’s “Life Suction”, I’m doing a similar thing using Diana Multi Operator Pinhole. There’s one thing that I love about this camera. You just have to turn the shutter button on then it will open the pinhole, I mean if I’m using Diana F+ I have to use that small thing on the Diana F+ to hold the shutter button and the shutter will open too, but it’s not as simple as the Diana Multi Operator Pinhole. I like simple things so I just place the camera everywhere I want and start to do some pinhole action!

Playing Video Games

Since this is my first roll, I was only able to use the one hole feature and I haven’t used yet the two or three hole pinhole feature with its colorful filter. So this camera holds so much great potential! You can use it for capturing moments like Tat’s “Life Suction” or go experimental with the multihole pinhole with the color filters or maybe some pinhole instax (pinstax!) shots like my friend Ping already did. Me? I just love to capture my home life like the gallery below :

How about that for a first roll? Haha. just kidding! I have to learn a lot before mastering this camera and I’m beginning to love using this camera. These days I love to take things slow and easy, I find that “slow and easy” in this camera. Just open the hole, let the lights travel slowly to the camera and capture those daily moments.

Daily Moments

Want to take things slow? The Diana Multi Operator is for you!

    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.

    LomoAmigo Galleries: Asher Moss shoots with the Diana F+ (NSFW)

    Nostalgia, intimacy, and urgent yet understated sensuality – are elements that are evidently part of Asher Moss’ work. Moss’ “Models in the Morning” series caught the attention of many, including the folks here at Lomography. The resolution: let Moss try out a few Lomography cameras, and wait for the visual intimacy to begin. In this first segment of LomoAmigo Galleries featuring Asher Moss, we present to you the photographer’s shots using the Diana F+.

    Fresh from the Lab: One Roll of Film and the Lubitel 166U

    Adi, Ekeu, and I did a lomowalk around downtown Bandung last Saturday, the beginning of November. We planned to use our Lubitel cameras with only one roll of film each. We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 3

    “Let me tell you about my life turning blue”. Those were the first words the guy on the bench said as he sat down beside me whilst I was eating my lunch. Usually, I prefer to eat alone but there was something about this opening sentence which really intrigued me; so I told him “Sure buddy, go ahead. Tell me about your life in blue”.

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?
