Diana Photographs

I love my newest toy – the Diana camera, a medium format camera.  This little gem takes the most dreamy photographs and the effects are timeless.  I had it in Iowa over Christmas and then took it to Minneapolis for a couple days.  There was a steep learning curve though, expose longer than you think necessary, or use a stronger flash than what comes with the Diana.  I actually ended up using the flash for my 35 mm camera and that seemed to work very well.  The Diana flash is fun and can change colors, but it is not very strong.  I got the gear from lomography, a dangerous site that one can easily be sucked into perusing for hours on end. 

 Here are a few of my favorite photos from the 6 or so rolls I had processed this past week.  The best part about this cheap turquoise plastic camera: it has made me forget about my longing for a DSLR camera, well at least for the time being.
