Plashes of Sunlight With Nothing Else but the Diana Camera!

Lomo is about experimenting with your gear, looking through its sprocketed holes, touching every driving gear, pushing all the buttons and trying to see what happens. Sometimes, really interesting results can be achieved, some of them even worth to be shared as tips.

Lomo is about experimenting with your gear, looking through its sprocketed holes, touching every driving gear, pushing all the buttons and trying to see what happens. Sometimes, really interesting results can be achieved, some of them even worth to be shared as tips.

So, take your Diana camera on a sunny day, switch the aperture to “pinhole” and the exposure to “bulb”. Point to the sun and press the only button. Make it twice. Make it three times. Try to move camera, while the button is pressed, but do it very quickly.

Experiment with the technique on different lighting conditions and with various light sources (like traffic lights in the night – one image is attached). No limits? Find other buttons you still haven’t pushed (yet). Experiment!
