I bought the Diana Mini White a few months ago. But the iconic Diana Silhouette would not be complete without the matching flash!
Around that time, the Diana F+ Flash White was still sold separately. The Team Manila stores I checked here in the Philippines carried the Diana Mini White, but not the white flash. It really boggled my mind that Lomography did not initially sell it as a set.
I was devastated at that time because I badly wanted a special edition Diana Mini, and the Diana Mini Wonderland Edition I was eyeing was unexpectedly sold out. The Diana Mini White was the next best thing for me. It retained the classic look of the Diana, but slightly offbeat because it’s as if the classic Diana’s been submerged in a bucket of white paint.
But it is absolutely not an option for me to buy the Diana Mini without the flash. Of course, I need flash, I don’t usually go out in the mornings. You could say I’m deprived of natural light. Also, I wanted the Diana Mini because I love how the flash looks exaggeratedly big as compared to the camera. Yes, I’m a design whore like that.
It’s a good thing they sold the white flash in the Lomo Asia online store. I also bought one for my friend, sontagbaby which looks perfect on her Snowcat Diana. So it’s actually not just for the Diana Mini white. I imagine it would also look great on the Sprocket Rocket White. Here are some sample pictures i got using my Sprocket Rocket and the Diana flash taken in low light situations. (I reserved use of my Diana Mini for a project that did not follow through)
My only complaint is that it’s easy to get scruffed up if you’re not real careful. Otherwise it’s still the same powerful Diana Flash we all know and love.
The original Konstruktor is a fun camera to build and takes wonderful photos. But what would make it better? A way to add flash and even a few of your existing Lomography flashes into the mix, perhaps? Thank you, I’ll be having that.
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In February, I wanted to take one of those long exposure night shots of traffic. You know the type: nighttime cityscape, with bright red and white stripes where traffic passes. I love those shots, but I had never gotten around taking one.
We have been digging in our archives here at Lomography UK and have noticed how often the Diana F+ is featured on the front pages of magazines. It appears to be the most photographed of all our cameras. Here are a few wonderful fashion shots that show off the Diana F+ to the world!

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.
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.
Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!
It may be tiny, but the Diana Baby is just as capable as its bigger sisters Diana F+ and Mini. Take time to watch this short clip to find out how you can load a 110 cartridge into your pocket-sized shooter!
My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.
Lomography UK was lucky enough to test an LC-A 120 prototype in store and it was glorious! We used colour and black and white film to capture the camera at its finest. It was everything you would expect from the LC-A but in full frame 38mm f/4.5 120 film. It's LOVE.
There's a certain air of sadness in Nishe's portraits. More often than not, the faces of her subjects are either partially or completely hidden. Sad, yes, but undeniably beautiful. Melancholia, as well as loss of innocence and the pains of growing up, are recurring themes in the photographer's body of work and she presents all these quite gracefully.
Where do I begin? Believe me, I know many places in Bandung. From a cozy cafe to where the famous street food and maybe even drinks can be found, to places for lomowalks, it would be my pleasure to show you all around Bandung - the city I love and the city of love!
