How the Night Sparkled on the First Day of December @ Lomography Gallery Store Soho

In these dark gloomy days, what better to brighten up a miserable and cold Thursday evening than going to see the Christmas tree lighting in Trafalgar Square and capturing it all with the classic dreaminess of the Diana F+!

We gathered in the warmth of the store to learn all about the fantastic features of this super versatile camera before heading out into the drizzle to capture the festivities in Trafalgar Square. We walked down through the bright lights of Chinatown before joining the crowds of people braving the cold to see the lights being turned on to celebrate the first day of December.

We experimented with long exposures, double exposures and even pinhole photographs to really try to get all the festive lights into the frame. After the lights were turned on, we were treated to some lovely Christmas carols as the crowd dispersed and we were able to get much closer to the pretty lights and ever capture cool Bokeh shots.

Once we’d whizzed through all our DianaF+ shots, it was time to return to the warmth of the shop and just wait with baited breath for our films to arrive fresh from the Lomolab!
