Nikki Sixx 987FM Side Show party 7-22-10

I attended the 987FM party for Nikki Sixx on July 22, 2010. I took along my Diana F+ and some B&W film. By the looks of it, I'm still figuring out how to use this camera! It's definitely a learning process. Below are the photos that came out. To see my other gallery from the event, go HERE.

Renegade Craft Fair 7-24-10 Los Angeles

I went into the Lomography Gallery Store in West Hollywood yesterday to drop off some film. I was chatting with a customer who was holding a Canon SLR camera. He had an attachment to use the lens from his Diana and recommended it. For $12, I decided to buy one and try it out.

Today, I went to the Renegade Craft Fair at the Cornfield in Downtown Los Angeles and decided to test out the 75mm lens from my Diana F+ on my Canon 5D. The results were pretty cool, but I think I prefer the results with the lens on the Diana. I'm testing it out again tonight in a low light rave setting to see if I can get some decent shots...if not, I will switch to pinhole, 120 film and a tripod. ;)

Hello Lomography!

On Sunday, July 18, 2010, I took a class at the Lomography Gallery Store in Los Angeles. I learned the history of this medium format, the ten golden rules and by the end, bought a Diana F+.

I've been shooting digital for years, but really miss film! I think lomography will help me think more creatively and I'm excited to see this great city through a different lens!

Here are some photos that I took during the workshop:
