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.
I bought the LomoKino years ago, and since then I've been having great times with it. I will continue documenting my daily life with the LomoKino, which is Lomography in motion! You can see the movements and facial expressions of people - it’s priceless! Documenting life in moving pictures, the Lomokino can be used as a camera that not only shoots moving pictures but also works like the multi-frame wonder camera, Supersampler!
A few months ago, I thought I had an intolerance against the milk sugar lactose. I got stomach aches every time I ate something with milk in it so I used lactase to prevent it. But when I consulted a doctor to be tested, they said it was something else.
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!
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!
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.
Your East London Lomography home is closing soon but fret not, our flagship store in Soho will still be around to satisfy all your analogue camera, film and LomoLab needs! Find out about all the details and a few treats we have lined up before the closure.
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!
Last Sunday, a great yoga event was held in Cernobbio, a small tourist town near the city of Como. Local association Breathe Como made a performance of power yoga exercises to raise funds for Africa. I developed the film a few days ago, and today I'll show the photos to you! I call this "Fresh From My Darkroom" because I developed the black and white films by myself! Take a look!
As the iconic LC-A celebrates its 30th birthday this month, we think it's only timely that we look back to Lomography's roots and shine the spotlight on the camera's birthplace, Saint Petersburg. If you haven't been there yourself, or if you have and simply wanted to be reminded of the beauty of the place, we've compiled a few select lomographs taken using no less than the LC-A by our community members!
