Summer in the city means its time to explore the outdoors and participate in Lomography Gallery Store Workshops! This week was all about the Diana F+!
This past Sunday our Gramercy location held one of our most popular workshops, the Diana Dialogues! After learning the history behind this sassy plastic lady, the group was ready to explore. We hit the streets and headed to Madison Square Park, the perfect place to bring Diana on a beautiful sunny day (all those sun-worshippers hanging out in the park love her!). We played around with double exposures and endless panoramic shots before we each went our separate ways, excited to be introducing our favorite girl to many of our favorite places around the city. What better way to spend a beautiful day?
Isabella Craun is a 13-year old photographer, who was part of the Diana Project held by our friends from Brannigan and Follen Photo Haus in Cleveland. She came by our Gallery Store to chat about her first impressions on film photography with the Diana F+.
Colors mean differently for all walks of life. For this week we have coquelicot, a bright red named from the wild corn poppy. Lomography tries to understand the meaning of each complex color found in the gradient and what it means for most of us photographers.
Lomography Team member Sarah Knoll shoots her Diana F+ regularly in low light situations. But when she got her hands on our prototype of the Diana Instant Square she took it out into the sunny streets of New York City and created a series of wonderful summer portraits.

You might get sick of New York being in the media reels all the time, but this city has rightfully earned its reputation, and it's inarguable. A favorite among photographers, street shooter Daniel Arnold is one of them.
Even after a decade after its introduction, the Diana F+ remains one of the most well-loved analogue cameras in the Lomography Community. But what makes this ever classy camera an instant classic? Let these lomographers and LomoAmigos share their love for the Diana F+!
