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.
*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?
