Soft, lo-fi, and dream-like — these are what come to mind when we speak of the Diana F+ camera. A true analogue icon, the Diana F+ camera gives you square format photos with a distinct ethereal look. But, what if you want to shoot outside the square? After all, some things are best viewed in a panoramic perspective — like a breathtaking view of the ocean or a scenic landscape. Well, don’t worry: here’s a tip that shows you how to shoot a #dianarama — an endless panorama taken with a Diana F+ camera.
Top Tips for #Dianaramas
1. Insert the panoramic frame mask included in your Diana F+ kit and set the film format switch to “16.” By changing the setting, you make sure that there is almost no gap between each image, thereby giving you a (more or less) seamless panoramic image. But don’t worry if your images overlap, as this makes your photo unique and distinctly analogue!
2. If you’re shooting a panoramic landscape and you want to get as little repetition between frames as possible, simply turn your camera about 45 degrees after each shot. Or turn it a lot less — and savor that sweet multiple-exposure-panorama effect.
3. Screw the rules! Go a little crazy and advance your frames randomly by alternating between full frame or half frame, or whatever-the-hell frame. Try doing multiple exposures on a single frame, pop a burst of flash, anything goes!
