Lomo Love

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012 10

It’s been quite some time since I loaded up my Diana camera and took her for a spin. I’ve been very focused on shooting with my Polaroid and digital cameras, so my Lomography has been sorely neglected. But when I signed up for a photoswap a short while ago, I decided it would be a great time to load up some of my expired 120 film stash, and have a date with my Diana. I shot a roll of film and sent it to my photoswap partner, she shot a roll and sent it to me, and then we each developed each others roll of film. I’ve been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to see the photos I shot for her, and I’m happy to report she shared them with me this weekend. Without further ado, and in all their unedited film glory, here are a handful of them.

Fall color…


My fave VW bus…

And a vintage interior…

*sigh* And now I’m reminded all over again about the vintage awesomeness that is Lomography. I still get the square format like a Polaroid photograph, and I get the vignetting, the grain, and the surprises of 120 film shot in a “toy” camera. I guess this means I’ll be carrying my Diana with me along with my SX-70, my Canon AE-1, and my dSLR. I can feel my back breaking already. The things we do for art, right?

    I love these so much, I’ve never used the 120 Diana but every time I see results from it, I’m so tempted. I feel your back pain, I normally have 3/4 cameras with me as well, its definitely worth it though šŸ™‚

    Thank you so much for taking part in the swap. Do you know if your photos in the group? If not, would you be able to email them to me so I can add them and then share them on my blog too, thanks!
