Dianaramas of Cairo

A Dianarama is a panoramic photograph taken using a Diana camera. The technique involves partly winding on the film after each exposure so that each frame overlaps and then moving the camera to create a pano like effect from a number of different exposures.

The same effect can be achieved with a Holga and the possibilities are endless - limited only by the length of film in the camera.

The trouble with the Diana is that the frame mask can't be removed so the line between the overlapping frames is too obvious and can be jarring. In the Holga the frame mask can be removed leaving a much softer edge between frames.

These two examples were shot in Cairo. Click on Dianaramas for more examples.
