Here's how I brightened up my Diana Mini for summer. What's more summery than sunflowers?
I went to my local craft store and bought tiny paint brushes and enamel paint in white, yellow, green and brown. Personally I think enamel paint is the best for painting onto plastic as it produces bright colours and definitely won’t rub off. The little pots cost £2 but there was more than enough for my decoration.
I decided to just paint the bumpy surface around the middle of my Diana Mini. First I painted the background white which took a few coats so that all the bumps were covered with paint. Make sure the paint is completely dry before painting another layer or a different colour which can take a few hours. Then I painted the yellow petals of the sunflowers onto the white background.
For the centre of the sunflowers I painted brown oval shapes with short lines coming from them, they look sort of like fat spiders. Then I painted the stems and leaves with green and finally I painted yellow, white and green dots on the brown centres to depict the sunflower seeds.
Ta dah! My Diana Mini is now ready for summer. Get creative! I would love to see anyone else’s summer decorations, this can be done with any camera, and design and any colours! Happy summer everyone.

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!

As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
