photos > Diana F+, roll two (part 1)

The other day I had my second roll of film that I took with my Diana F+ camera developed. I learned a few lessons from my first roll. Two of those lessons were, when using the 35mm back, stand much further back then you think you need to and keep the subject in the centre of the viewfinder. While I effectively communicated the first lesson to Ivan, obviously I didn't adequately explain the second one. These photos are proof of that.
oh so close!

I still like them! I have a bunch of photos that turned out really cool, I will show you those soon.

  3. I like the second one! It's got a cool vintagey feel to it. Plus it's hella artsy ;)
    I would be absolutely hopeless with these kinds of cameras.

  5. I think they are awesome! I love the imperfect quality of the Diana. I think the more surprising the better. Can I come to Canada and play Diana with you? Someday!

  7. Even though these are some of your first attempts and such with that camera, they're still great.

  10. I have this camera too, and i was discouraged when my first role came out horribly wrong because of lighting. do you know where i can get tips on using it?

  11. haha, that's hilarious! Ivan could really capture the Headless Horseman around Halloween time! ;) But in all seriousness, this is what makes analog the greatest... all the surprises along the way!

  12. The photos are fun, like a different perspective. I am working on my first roll of film in my diana mini and occasionally I wonder if anything will come out!
