The pinhole technique has been used for ages by scientists and artists alike. During this workshop a group of Lomographers learned this amazing technique with the help of the Diana F+.
Pinhole or camera obscura is a lens less projection and has been around for centuries, even before cameras and film. The day began with a brief history of the technique and then we loaded our Dianas and went to the streets! 3-10 second exposures with 400 speed film seems to be the magical formula for our sunny Sunday afternoon, but we will keep our fingers crossed! Pinhole photography requires a little trial and error and a lot of patience, but the reward is amazing. Check out a few of our shots from Madison Square Park!

At funfair with my Horizon Perfekt Every year my city Como hosts, for the Easter period, a great fun fair. This is a great occasion to test a camera, to make experiments with films, to have fun and to photograph people while also having fun! This year, I used my gem, the wonderful Horizon Perfekt (that I bought from the Lomography Online Shop) loaded with a timeless film, a Kodak Tri-X 400 developed, as usually for b/w, by myself.
