I think you'll agree most bloggers love their cameras, and the iconic Diana is one of the most beautiful. Lomogaphy kindly sent us each a Diana to try out, but I admit thus far mine has been more fashion accessory than actively used camera!

I've bought the film, but it's been years since I've used anything other than a digital camera and I'm a bit... scared.... That's pretty silly I know!

I'm determined to get over the fear and start snapping some photos soon. With a digital SLR and five million iphone apps at my finger tips to create beautiful photos it's easy to understand why film has fallen by the wayside, but I'm so glad there are still so many film users and lomographers in particular keeping it alive. Wait up guys, I'm coming too!

This brand was unknown to me. Quite a different take on the Take 10.
The camera looks cool but I already have an excellent one. Thinking to upgrade it, but it will be a German make I'm afraid;-)

Lovely outfit! I still haven't worn this dress :(

That's great! So far, the most exciting and beautiful take 10 challenge :) I sometimes think how did we do it when we had only like 20 pictures to snap!? But I think back then photos were more precious and we would really make sure it was worth it taking a picture.. Today we have billions of pictures in our computers and look through them so seldom :( good luck with the lomo!

I love my Lomography camera. Can't wait to really start playing around with it.

Ahh I bought a Diana for my bezzie last Christmas and she takes awesome pics with it. Fight the fear - it's really easy to use and take nice shots with, they are so vintage looking.

I have this dress and it works perfectly with the Diana as an accessory. Once you use a reel of film you will get used to taking photos on it, I often cut the heads off people but I think that adds to the fun of film. x

who'd have thought a camera could be so versatile. You look wonderful as always, and the camera really does look like an accessory, an extension of your outfit. Brilliant xx

Winnie said...

I can't wait to see how your photos turned out. Love that you got the original Diana and how you matched it with your outfit, you look amazing!

Kimberlee said...

Love the retro feel of the camera. Your dress is so cute with little sail boats :)

Pahaha, I would totally use a Diana camera as a fashion accessory first and foremost!

Sharon said...

It does make a wonderful fashion accessory. I know what you man about being afraid to take film pictures. You don't know hat you have until you get it developed.

I would love to have a lomography camera in addition to my digital cameras. I love the effects that Lomo cameras give. I can only achieve that by using photoshop after I've taken shots from my digital camera. I look forward to getting one this month.
