Fancy Feline Photo Competition

Because of a passion for analogue photography, a great desire to participate, and maybe even win, I decided to join a contest! From the title, I guess you can guess the theme of the competition: pets!

Animals are extremely difficult subjects to photograph. If they’re not standing or sitting still, they’re doing some strange or unphotogenic poses! I got an invitation to participate in this Lomographic race. I agreed in a heartbeat! I began to shoot, shoot, shoot, developed the film, and chose three:

There were 25 other people who participated, and knowing them, I was not expecting anything. The evening’s awarding ceremony took place at the Zuni. We had dinner as prizes were being given out, such as a fantastic La Sardina for the third placer, a wonderful Diana F+ for the runner up, and a beautiful Holga for the grand prize winner.

Suddenly, the photo depicting swans was chosen and I realized I had just won a Diana F+! :-) Definitely an interesting experience that I want to do again!

The Diana F+ is a new twist on the ‘60s classic cult camera. Famous for its dreamy and soft-focused images, the Diana F+ is now packed with extra features such as panorama and pinhole capabilities. Available in our Online Shop.
