The 35mm Back for Diana+ is an accessory I love, but at the beginning I had some hard times trying to centre my subjects in the picture I was taking.
The eagerness to try my Diana+ with its new outfit made me strart shooting immediately, and I only noticed later, looking at the results, that I had done mass (head) murder.
All this happened because I forgot that when shooting with the "Diana+ 35mm Back:http://shop.lomography.com/diana-35mm-back, the frame is rectangular, unlike the square 120 frame, so I started shooting trying to centre my subject as much as possible, in order to be sure not to behead anyone. But this trick worked for the first 6/7 shots only, then I completely forgot I had loaded a 35mm roll and got back to collecting scalps.
So I came out with a simple method to always centre my pictures, I took two gummed paper strips and glued them on the two sides of the viewfinder, just like this:
And now my pictures finally got their head together!
So if you have just bought the Diana+ 35mm back and don’t feel like decapitating your friends and relatives’ heads, just remember it only takes a couple of tape strips… it doesn’t really take much!
