The Diana F+ is my first camera, and I’ve loved her since I first held her in my hands. I also love the fact that I can expose the sprockets when I shoot 35mm film.
I got the Diana Deluxe Kit a few months after watching a YouTube video about Lomography. One of the many things the kit includes is the 35mm Back, which made things convenient seeing as I have more access to 35mm film than 120 film. Two of the masks included with the back allowed me to effortlessly create those lovely exposed sprockets I have now come to love.
I first tried exposing the sprockets on my second roll. At the time I didn’t have a film scanner, and even when I did buy one I only rescanned three photos to test the waters. Unfortunately, I don’t know what happened to the negatives, but those three photos were enough for me to know that I loved sprockets.
I like being able to tell which picture I took first, which helps me remember what happened first. Then there are the times when I realize that I accidentally scanned my negatives backwards (oops) but then they look weird if I flip them the right way.
I have also discovered that I love sprocket holes even more when coupled with the fisheye lens.
At the moment my Diana F+ is the only camera I have that possesses this power, but I have my eyes set on the Spinner 360. For now though I’m going to keep on loving the sprocketed results that come from my beloved Diana F+ even if it is a pain to scan them in at times.
The Diana F+ is a new twist on the ‘60s classic cult camera. Famous for its dreamy and soft-focused images, the Diana F+ is now packed with extra features such as panorama and pinhole capabilities. Available in our Online Shop.
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
I’ve been shooting analogue as long as I can remember but it wasn’t until a few months ago that I was introduced to instant photography. So, you can imagine when I was given the chance to try out the recently introduced Lomo’Instant Wide, I “instantly” said yes and hit the streets of Vienna!
"Love your camera" is Marika's first rule when it comes to shooting film. Her passion for collecting gear stemmed from a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of testing a variety of film cameras for her friend's shop. Let's all welcome our newcomer of the week from Prague, Czech Republic, analogvision!
At first, Skyler only visited the Lomography website to take a look at sample photographs taken with different point-and-shoot cameras. Seeing the immense focus given by the community to film photography and experimentation, two things she absolutely loves, she immediately signed up and started her own LomoHome. In this interview, she talks about her go-to camera, the difference between digital and film photography and more.

In order to escape the world of facts and figures, tax auditor Martin Dietrich discovered photography as his creative counterpart almost seven years ago. On a trip to Paris he fell in love with analog photography and the magic of film has been fascinating to him since then. But he also appreciates the benefits of digital photography. For Lomography he tested the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens on his Fuji X-Pro 1 camera. Check out Martin's photos and learn more about the founder of the popular Neoprime magazine.
In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.
