Creative Half-Frame Shots Taken with the Diana Mini

The adage “good things come in twos” rings true when it comes to shooting artsy half-frames with the Diana Mini.

Sometimes, the standard number of shots in a roll can be a major constraint especially when we want to take as many photographs as we want. The practical solution would be, of course, to simply buy more films to add to your stock, but wouldn’t we want to have a better alternative to that?

This is where a half-frame camera comes in handy. One example of this is our very own Diana Mini. Don’t let its tiny size fool you! Despite its appearance, the Diana Mini is a powerful camera that has features like simple exposure settings, and multiple and long exposure capabilities. Plus, its compact size lets you shoot as many as 72 lo-fi, dreamy photos anytime, anywhere. So not only do your photographs look relatively cooler in half-frames, you also get to shoot twice the number of photos in a roll.

Need photographic proof? Have a look at this selection of beautiful and artsy half-frame format photographs shot by our brilliant community members!

To match your wild, creative imagination, you might be glad to know that Lomography recently released the colorful and whimsical Diana Mini Double Rainbow designed by artist Tara Mcpherson! Read more about this lovely camera here.

Oh, and before we forget, the Diana Mini uses any 35mm film and also shoots full squares. Now why would you not want this camera in your photographic arsenal?

The Diana Mini is the ultra-compact, petite version of the Diana F+. This camera takes soft-focused, lo-fi images in 35mm and allows you to change between half-format and square shots with a flick of a switch. Get your own Diana Mini now!
