If you've tried everything that your camera can do and almost gave up because you can't think of inventive tricks anymore, well at least I am thankful it's not happening to me just yet because I got this tip for you!
Set the shutter of your Diana+ to “B” (bulb) and the best aperture for your current lightning conditions (I’ve tried it at night)
Open the shutter, wait several seconds to capture the image
Promote to the next frame, but DO NOT close the shutter! Make your scanning lab crazy – there will be light leaks also in between the frames :) Have fun and find yet another button you had never pressed before :)
Fancy yourself a very adventurous lomographer? Well, better prepare those acids, bleaches, fire, and almost everything you could think of applying on your emulsions and take on these extreme film destroying tips! Remember to be careful, though!

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!
Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
