Lomography Diana F+ Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. The winner was announced here.

As you may have read, I recently broke my beloved DSLR (actually more accurately the wind broke my beloved DSLR) so when the the folks over at Lomography offered me a Diana F+ camera to play around with I lept at the chance to get creative.
Diana F+ Giveaway
They sent me over a CMYK Diana F+  to play around with and I’m in love, it’s official Diana and I are running away to woods to get married, the sexy little wench. It has been a long time since I’ve played around with an analogue camera but it is strangely liberating. I won’t deny that I love the sheer ease of being able to take a million photos and delete them on digital cameras and mobile phones, but there is something special about not quite knowing how those snaps are going to turn out. And collecting them from the shop then passing the prints around your friends is so much fun too, I miss prints.

I’ve played about with Lomography looks on lots of photo developers so I’m really excited to see how my photos will turn out – I promise to do a whole post dedicated to them soon. I’m excited to see what they look like.

Lomography Giveaway

I have to admit because of the delicious toy camera look and light weight feel, I’m almost tempted just to carry around this baby purely as a fashion statement even when it doesn’t have film in it – like a total hipster geek. I won’t, I promise.

Ummm, you sexy little thing Diana. Your colours are beautiful and just the letters CMYK around your lens, (which is deeply entrenched in my head as standing for cyan, magenta, yellow and key), along with your gorgeous little shape and big fat, pink detachable flash, plunges me straight back into the darkrooms heavily scented with processing chemicals of my A Level Photography years. Swoon-a-rama.

    Not sure how I got here, but glad I did xx

  73. I love your blog and I love your pics and I feel your pain at the death of your DSLR (mine plunged from a great height off a hook on a toilet door in Nara, Japan…fortunately only the lens was smashed. Fortunately. Only.) I will be interested to see how your pics turn out as I sold all my Lomos and accessories cos I was so disappointed in how the pics turned out. I was hoping for a return to retro-tastic 70′s pics from when I was a child, but…my first and only film turned out pretty much blank on the Diana. Fisheye wasn’t bad though. And now I will shut up…rainy day inside in Tokyo, so am babbling.
