My Diana Mini is my best friend and it produces beautiful little pictures! But only recently have I found a way to get some light leaks on demand into that bad girl, without having to do drastic changes to her...
This totally happened as an honest mistake! You see, I was in town and had just gotten to the end of my roll of expired Fuji Superia. A friend had walked up to me and started making small conversation, and without thinking, I proceeded to open up the back of my Diana Mini in order to load a new roll. But fortunately I realized in time the mistake I was making (I had not re-winded the film), little did I know, it would work out for the best!
So here’s the trick, when you’ve shot a picture on which you would like a bit of a light leak, simply shoot one or maybe two random photos (or even blank frames) and unlock the rear door switch! Now let the back slide off just a little bit (not too much, you don’t want to waste a whole roll) a couple of millimeters is enough. This should result in three, maybe four already exposed frames painted with a beautiful light leaked effect.
Photography is not only an act of documentation or communication, it is also a way of seeing the world. The camera opens our eyes and lets us see what lies behind the obvious, and we start looking at things as potential subjects of a photograph. Every leak of light unveils secrets that talented photographers turn into a piece of art. Li Hui is one of those gifted artists. We talked to her about her work and her sensitive photographs that picture a wonderful vulnerability.
Who would've thought that a camera as petite as the Diana Mini can make such a big impact on Julia's life? This sweet camera helped rekindle her love for photography and paved the way for her to meet new friends. Read on to know more about waggrad00's first lomo affair with the Diana Mini!
While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
Diana F+ is something of a wild child. It loves outré looks, multiple exposures and outlandish colors. But loaded with the right 120 film, it can show a mellow side that favors rule-of-thirds perfection and subdued coloring.

My friends and I teamed up with Photo Art Pro to spread analog love to the Zaporozhye community. Last month, we hosted a Yeti Scavenger Hunt and had a LomoKino camera as prize. We challenged participants to shoot a roll of film based on a checklist. It was tremendous fun!
In 1968, Elliott Landy went around town to photograph the glamor set, including the likes of Faye Dunaway, Marlene Dietrich and Lauren Bacall. His black and white shots are now part of a limited-edition book.
