Well here I go I am addicted! I know I am a bit late to lomography train but man I am in love! After shooting with my Holga for a few days I started researching plastic cameras to see what I would buy next, and the diana mini was at the top of my list.
While I was getting some film developed at my local camera shop I spotted this little lady on display behind the counter. After dorking out with the girl who developed my film about toy cameras I splurged and got it with some of my bday mula, am I the only 27 year old adult who still gets birthday money from their grandmother?
Here are some images from my first roll. This was very much a test run, for most of them I wasn't advancing the film enough so I got alot more double exposures than desired.
Overall though I love this little lady! It is so tiny and when using the taller frame you can get up to 72 photos from one roll. This is a huge plus as with the holga you would typically only get 12.
I know a few of you have told me you have the diana mini, I would love to see some of your images! If you would be so kind as to link to them in the comments I would be so appreciative. And, of course if you have any tips or pointers I would love to hear them!
I am scheduling this post for the morning, so by the time you read this Dustin and I should be headed into the mountains for my bday weekend to celebrate by wine tasting, taking billions of photos, hiking, and eating good food. So excited! Happy Friday everyone!
