As a traveling musician, I am witness to many great shows in bars and clubs across the country. All of these shots are taken with a Diana Mini with the Diana Flash and Ilford HP5 Black and White Film.
As the bass player for Toronto-based honky tonk band The Sure Things, I see hundreds of gigs a year. There are an incredible number of talented musicians in this great country.
Since discovering Lomography, I have fallen in love with the Diana Mini and Fisheye One for taking shots in bars. With the Diana Flash and Ringflash and roll after roll of Ilford HP5 Black and White film, I have been snapping pictures of shows (and the glorious after show jams) for the last few months. Check it out:
The Apollo in Thunder Bay
The Standard Tavern and The Times Change in Winnipeg
Loplops in Sault Ste. Marie
The Dakota Tavern and The Cameron House in Toronto.
The Magnificent 7s,
The Cameron Family Singers
Andrew Neville and The Poor Choices
The Diana Mini is the ultra-compact, petite version of the Diana F+. This camera takes soft-focused, lo-fi images in 35mm and allows you to change between half-format and square shots with a flick of a switch. Get your own Diana Mini now!
Lomography’s Fisheye One is the world’s first compact 35mm fisheye camera. With a sweeping 170-degree view and slamming colours and contrasts, the Fisheye One will certainly give you great circular shots every time. See it with the rest of our Fisheye cameras here!
