Kosuke and Asumi Mizuno's Most Unpredictable Diana F+ Camera Shots


Dreamy and spontaneous, the beloved Diana F+ camera has been a favorite among analogue enthusiasts ever since. Lomography's very own Diana darlings Kosuke (@akabee) and Asumi Mizuno (@orangebird) both met the Diana F+ camera when @akabee went to the World Congress 2007 held in London, where he received the camera. His partner @orangebird saw the Diana photos @akabee took, so she also became interested.

Lomographer @akabee mentioned in another interview that whenever he and @orangebird shoot the streets with the Diana F+, the world changes into a strange space. Today, we talked to these Lomographers about the most surprising and unexpected shot they ever took with the Diana.

Kosuke Mizuno's Multiple Exposure

Hey Kosuke! Do you remember how you took the shot?

I attached a tripod to the Diana F+, and shot with multiple exposures.

May you share with us what you were doing or trying to achieve? What was your intended shot?

I thought that I would like to have perfect multiple exposure. I used a tripod and shot the same scenery many times. As a result, it was possible to take pictures that many people have disappeared.

What do you like about this unpredictable shot?

I was surprised! Because the picture and my image were consistent!

Asumi Mizuno's Happy Accident

Hi Asumi! Do you remember how you took the shot?

I went to take a picture of the sunset scenery. A stray cat came suddenly while shooting. I adjusted the posture to the height of the cat's eyes.

May you share with us what you were doing or trying to achieve? What was your intended shot?

I hurried to shoot the shutter before the cat passed in front of me. I absolutely wanted to take a picture of a cat walking with sunset scenery.

What do you like about this surprising Diana shot?

I accidentally cut the shutter twice, but I could shoot the movement of the walking foot of the cat. I feel very lucky and happy!
