I just started to use this simple yet brilliant camera, but I will talk about my first experience using the Diana Multi Pinhole Operator. The first roll seems to be history to many Lomographers including me, so this time let me tell you about how amazing this camera is!
Where to begin? Oh yes, I remember about one year ago I was browsing through the photos section on Lomography then I stumbled upon this square format Lomograph. I was like “this photo is so great!”, with all the beautiful blur going on here and there, you can almost feel you are in the photo itself!
The photo was taken Tat) using the Diana Multi Pinhole Operator. How could that camera result an image like that? I was asking myself at that time then after seeing all of his photos using Diana Multi Pinhole Operator, I promised to myself that I will buy the camera one day!
Very very inspired by Tat’s “Life Suction”, I’m doing a similar thing using Diana Multi Operator Pinhole. There’s one thing that I love about this camera. You just have to turn the shutter button on then it will open the pinhole, I mean if I’m using Diana F+ I have to use that small thing on the Diana F+ to hold the shutter button and the shutter will open too, but it’s not as simple as the Diana Multi Operator Pinhole. I like simple things so I just place the camera everywhere I want and start to do some pinhole action!
Since this is my first roll, I was only able to use the one hole feature and I haven’t used yet the two or three hole pinhole feature with its colorful filter. So this camera holds so much great potential! You can use it for capturing moments like Tat’s “Life Suction” or go experimental with the multihole pinhole with the color filters or maybe some pinhole instax (pinstax!) shots like my friend Ping already did. Me? I just love to capture my home life like the gallery below :
How about that for a first roll? Haha. just kidding! I have to learn a lot before mastering this camera and I’m beginning to love using this camera. These days I love to take things slow and easy, I find that “slow and easy” in this camera. Just open the hole, let the lights travel slowly to the camera and capture those daily moments.
Want to take things slow? The Diana Multi Operator is for you!
