If like me you are new to the world of pinhole photography, and don't want to waste the more expensive 120 films in your collection, then try the Diana Multi Pinhole Operator with the Diana 35mm Back+ for more practice shots per roll!
I want to get better at pinhole photography and the easiest and most creative way of doing this seemed to be by using the Diana Multi Pinhole Operator. I like the idea that you can choose a number of pinholes, and also the cute color gel filters that come with it. I haven’t experimented with all this too much yet, as I am still trying to get to grip with exposure times and where best to position the camera at the moment.
Given how much more it is to buy and develop 120 film in my locality, I had been reluctant to experiment too much with this camera with the original medium format back on it. I decided that for my first few attempts I really ought to be using the Diana 35mm Back+ that I got for my Diana F+. This is a great idea, especially for a newbie such as myself because it allows you to get treble the shots per roll for your practice. It also is a lot cheaper if you happen to have a disaster (I have had a couple so far). And it means that you can have exposed sprockets, and different masks in the back so you get a variety of options.
I think that these 2 items go perfectly together and I will continue to use them in this way until I become better rehearsed in the art of pinhole photography.

Our LomoAmigo Kate Bellm is well-known for her psychedelic shots and Lomography's LomoChrome film is perfect for signature style. With some rolls of LomoChrome Purple and Turquoise film in her bag, the Deyá-based photographer went on a trip to Iceland and came back with otherworldly landscape shots.
It is clear from the wild variety of photos in the website that Lomographers will do just about anything to get a good shot. Some swap rolls with friends overseas while others concoct unheard-of film soups. And then there are the masters of operations, the ones who spy and crouch their way to a share-worthy picture. This is one such story.

There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.
Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!
I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
