This month, I spotted a Diana F+ Mr. PInk on the front cover of UK fashion magazine, Company. Read on to see the feature from the inside.
I am not a particularly avid magazine reader, but on a long journey, I like to have something with me to peruse. This month on my trip to London, I went to buy a mag in the Leeds train station and the front cover of September’s Company fashion magazine just caught my eye. Admittedly it is smaller than my fingernail on my pinkie but with my geek glasses in place, I saw it and decided to buy it. Lomography as a cover star – who would have thought?
Bizarrely, the feature in the magazine doesn’t seem to be called “Summer Street Style” as the cover suggests, but instead details some hot current trends in a piece called “the fashion five”.
Number 4 of the five trends is called “Snap” and talks about the importance of having a camera (digital or analogue) with you at all times to capture the summer action. The page features a special edition Diana F+ from Urban Outfitters, as well as a La Sardina Cubic and a Fisheye No. 2 Python edition. The articles say, “the super stylish Lomography cameras are making us style up our outfits around our lens. From Fisheye to flash, we heart the cute retro style printed fronts”.
Heads up, Metro Manila-based Lomographers! A film photography workshop to be conducted by Meerly, former general manager of Lomography Singapore, featuring the Diana F+ will be held this month at Common Room in Quezon City, Philippines.

With an expanded field of view and its ability to produce high quality images and capture minute detail, medium format photography has become the top choice of many photographers.

For someone who was previously disinterested in photographic work, his newfound passion for photography is astounding. His photos have an edgy feel to them; and for someone who hasn't been shooting for a long time, his distinct style is - quite surprisingly - discernible. Meet this emerging fashion photographer from Buenos Aires who shoots on film and recently, the Diana+ Premium Glass Lens.
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!
