Tell us a little about yourself...
I come from Spain. I work as a fashion designer and stylist. I consider myself an aesthete, disciplined, temperamental, stubborn (I am Capricorn), sensitive, and passionate in everything I do. I always wake up in a good mood. I love nice people and nice things. My weaknesses are my daughter Noa, who also is my little muse, and food. I enjoy the simple things in life, I don't need much to be happy, just as long as I have the love of my people, and that they are fine. Lomography makes me happy!

How did you first discover the Diana F+?
My first camera was the Fisheye 2. And I wanted to try a different format, something more "square", so I decided on the Diana, and I think it is the best investment I have ever made! The Diana F+ is the one to blame for my addiction to creative photography.

Do you have any advice for Diana newcomers?
No. 1: If you want to take portraits, be careful with the framing. Be sure to leave some "air"" above the subject's head, if you don´t want to become "the Headless Rider".
No. 2: You must open the Diaphragm one more step if you use ISO 100 speed film, for example, choose partial clouds, on a sunny day.
No. 3: Don't get to close to the subject or object, of your photos will be out of focus. There is a special lens for this.
No. 4: read the instructions.
No. 5: Don't give up, if you follow these simple steps, the results will be amazing!
