Taking Little Diana on Vacation

These are from a roll of film I put through a Diana Mini. The look of the photos that come out of this camera are.. well, gamey at best. Sometimes, though, it produces some really fun shots. This was such a great trip for me, and it was definitely a different experience using this little plastic camera. Honestly, I didn’t trust it. I thought I’d get a roll of unexposed or fogged-out film from it. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case.

The camera is highly unpredictable, which I suppose is part of its charm. The sometimes fuzzy, usually washed-out nature of the photos is something one either loves or hates. In general, I haven’t formed an opinion yet, but I love all of these examples.


Somebody’s Watching Me..

This is a shot from the test roll I put through my first Olympus Stylus Epic. I wanted to test the focus to be sure everything was in order, but I also wanted to see how it would present depth of field in brighter light situations. I think the little guy handled it pretty well. The frog statue was a more-than-willing model for my test shot.
