I have a love/hate relationship when it comes to Lomography. Sometimes the unpredictable nature of the cameras produce great results, other times the unreliable pieces of kit create images which just remind you how much money you wasted getting the film developed.
But today I am loving the Diana F+, a medium-format Lomography camera. A couple of weeks ago I picked it up for the first time in about a year and used it to capture the atmosphere of the Brighton F.C promotion parade along with scenes around the city.
The Diana F+ is not a technical camera; when you’re ready to shoot you just select the weather conditions and distance from the subject using levers on the lens. So you can see why using a camera like this is so unpredictable and how much room for error it leaves espcially as the viewfinder is above the lens which gives you a higher perspective. But with all this being said, I’m really happy with the results and had great fun using it. I would never use solely this camera when capturing an event like this; I took hundreds of photos on my Sony A7R II. But if you just want a good time and want to try out medium-format the Diana F+ is a great starting point.
