If you've tried everything that your camera can do and almost gave up because you can't think of inventive tricks anymore, well at least I am thankful it's not happening to me just yet because I got this tip for you!

  • Set the shutter of your Diana+ to “B” (bulb) and the best aperture for your current lightning conditions (I’ve tried it at night)
  • Open the shutter, wait several seconds to capture the image
  • Promote to the next frame, but DO NOT close the shutter! Make your scanning lab crazy – there will be light leaks also in between the frames :) Have fun and find yet another button you had never pressed before :)

    @vicuna: your avatar is strongly associated with MODSELECTOR logo :) And I desperately like their tunes!

    Nice, I've already thought about this, but never tried it too.

    I might try this with my Lubitel, its nice and stable on a tripod and obviously takes photos sideways on the film, so you'd get a nice straight 'melting' effect!
