Love For Lomography 04


Untitled

Oh man oh man! How has it been almost a year since I last shared some prints using the Diana Mini?? It's one of those light hearted cameras meant for fun and mistakes -- don't mind me though, I'll just be justifying the cost to develop them. It's like.... you're paying a premium on developing film to see which mistakes you made (which is kind of all the time!) #lifedilemma

One of my favorite pictures is of my sister-in-law (as seen in the image above) where I had big plans to double expose with flowers. I don't know how I managed to completely get it all wrong but I still love how it turned out.

A snapshot from our flight from LAX to Cabo San Lucas back in February of this year. I'm really digging the hot pink flare on the bottom. On this trip, I took most photos with the Diana and the Instax (as seen here).

Remember the flowers I was talking about that were supposed to be double exposed? These were those but here they are displayed all by itself. Still happy with the results.

Beach photos were meant for toy cameras! Or is it the other way around?

Really into this color combination. It reminds me of conceptual abstract colorful dreamy summers.

I'm playing catch up on what's been going on these past two months! Meanwhile, how's it going? How was your summer? I'm so excited for the next few months! :)

  1. I love these dreamy photos! I agree, it's the unexpected and imperfect nature of them that make them so special.

    I've thought for a long time about getting a Diana camera (I'll admit initially because of the name!), but haven't taken the plunge due to the cost. What do you think of yours and how often do you find yourself using it? Thanks!

    1. Thank you, Diana!!

      As for the Diana camera, you should totallllly get this! Oh man, it would be so so so perfect! I really love how not serious the camera is and it's fun to take on any hiking adventures (since it's so light!) However, I don't use it as much as I'd like mainly because the logistics of purchasing the specific 120mm film, then sending it to a professional lab that accept this type of film and then receiving it back in the mail can sometimes take a lot out of you. You can see why it's been a year now since I last posted photos. :P

  2. I love all the cool effects! I've been thinking about experimenting with my camera, like free lensing, or these hacks ("7 simple photography hacks" on YouTube by COOPH)

  3. Love them! I still have to develop film from my Konstructor and I think I'm going to pick up a Holga soon. :)

  4. Goodness, your love for lomography has in turn sparked mine. These shots are magnificent, the leaks and light flares make for imperfect perfection. :)

  8. You are so so good, Tana! I love all your double exposures, they always turn out so beautifully! I love film, but you're right - they are so expensive to develop...but so worth it! :) Happy Friday, friend!! xo

    1. Thank you dear Jess!! You are too kind. :) There are so many double exposures I never share because they rarely ever turn out that great. And yes, it can get SO expensive!! Hope you have a wonderful week ahead! <3
