Use the Diana Close Up Lens with your LC-A

Have you ever tried using a lens meant for one camera on another? I combined two of the Lomography classics for this one!

I thought it would be cool to use the Diana Close-Up lens on the LC-A similar to the Holga tip I submitted, as with all cameras the focus range seems to be around 20cm thats 60cm or 3/4 times closer than you could get before.

With all the things you’d expect from your trusty LC-A such as great color saturation and vignetting, I just used some Kodak Gold for this gallery as its cheap and was a test roll and I feel the results came out great! Perhaps they could look even better if they were done with x-pro slide film! Unlike the Holga the depth of field seems to be a little greater making it a little easier for focusing etc. I just held the lens in front of the camera for taking pictures but if you cant be bothered with that you could use masking tape instead.

Its easy and you get great results!
