Diana mini photos, round two



So this roll of film has been quite the learning curve. I shot with a red scale ISO 400 film, which was fine for cloudy days (eg the top 2 pictures) but when I tried to shoot in the sun (the bottom 2 pics) the pictures were out of focus and faded. The ones here are the best out of the film, but a lot of the pictures came back so blurry you couldn't make out what the picture was supposed to be of.

But it's all good! I am learning! This weekend I am loading the Diana up with a colour film to take pictures around Wellington and I'll also have my Fuji Instax with me, so hopefully I'll get some good shots to share.

Oh and by the way, those top 2 pictures were taken at Bondi Beach and that's Liss from Daydream Lily sitting on the steps with my hubby. Good memories :)

  4. Figuring out the Diana is definitely a process! I can't say how many rolls I got back where only one or two shots came out before I got the hang of it! But part of the fun is the unpredictability of the results!

    I really like these shots, especially the first one!

    I have some of my Diana shots on my blog, if anyone is interested in checking them out!
