She was one of the reasons I bought my first Lomo camera. Now I can have a Diana close even when I'm not around my amazing inspiring non plastic SuperDiana!!
With the most infectious laugh I’ve ever heard she helps getting through lots of bad days and makes the good ones even more fun. While I try to paint with light and emulsion she paints with a brush. And I know she’s a little annoyed by me always taking pictures of her but she doesn’t complain. The most fun ones I take in the morning when she’s waking up (but I promised not to post them). When you can complete each others sentences almost all the time and don’t even have to use words to communicate anymore then you know you found a true soulmate… and she makes the best lasagna ever.
The Diana that lights up my life (even without an F+). I love my Diana! :)
My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.

In this article, Healy explains how you can find ways to do street photography even if you live in a rural area.
The Lomography site brims with photos that can send phobias ablaze. It’s not entirely for the sake of being Halloween-morbid that we’ve taken up the topic. We’ve observed that these fear objects tend to be photogenic, marked by ominous vignettes and exaggerated bursts of color. The first fear especially: pyrophobia.
