As you may have read, I recently broke my beloved DSLR (actually more accurately the wind broke my beloved DSLR) so when the the folks over at Lomography offered me a Diana F+ camera to play around with I lept at the chance to get creative.
They sent me over a CMYK Diana F+ to play around with and I’m in love, it’s official Diana and I are running away to woods to get married, the sexy little wench. It has been a long time since I’ve played around with an analogue camera but it is strangely liberating. I won’t deny that I love the sheer ease of being able to take a million photos and delete them on digital cameras and mobile phones, but there is something special about not quite knowing how those snaps are going to turn out. And collecting them from the shop then passing the prints around your friends is so much fun too, I miss prints.
I’ve played about with Lomography looks on lots of photo developers so I’m really excited to see how my photos will turn out – I promise to do a whole post dedicated to them soon. I’m excited to see what they look like.
I have to admit because of the delicious toy camera look and light weight feel, I’m almost tempted just to carry around this baby purely as a fashion statement even when it doesn’t have film in it – like a total hipster geek. I won’t, I promise.
Ummm, you sexy little thing Diana. Your colours are beautiful and just the letters CMYK around your lens, (which is deeply entrenched in my head as standing for cyan, magenta, yellow and key), along with your gorgeous little shape and big fat, pink detachable flash, plunges me straight back into the darkrooms heavily scented with processing chemicals of my A Level Photography years. Swoon-a-rama.
