    Fair and Square in Black and White

    We see square format photography as a very elegant form of art. Its look and its results are something to die for especially in our world of Lomography.

    Diana Mini, Flash, Square Format, Black and White and in your face!

    I needed a camera on a night out and decided to be extremely shallow and go for looks. Diana mini white with a white flash would suit my style for the evening. Black and white film would give me an edge but I never expected the results to be this good!

    Lomography Diana Mini - The Surprise of Shooting Forever (staff review)

    The Diana Mini exemplifies the famous "Don't Think Just Shoot" motto. It literally can shoot forever on a roll of 35mm that produces twice more photos (72 photos) than normal format. It totally fits into my environmentally concerned mind that I can shoot at ease without worrying of wasting film...

    Simple Composing Tips for Square Shooters

    Medium format film is often shot in cameras with a 6x6 square aspect ratio of 1:1 (as opposed to 3:2 in many 35mm cameras). Composing your shots for a square is often quite different to shooting a rectangular image.
