I started my July and August film project with my Diana camera. I had mentioned in that post that I completely forgot how to use the camera so I was positively sure nothing had come out, but thankfully something came out. Not great stuff, but there sure is stuff.
Things I’ve learnt for next time; it is a 70mm lens which means selfies will be a lot like the below photo (though I’m sure my Mum and I would have ruined that photo anyway) (I knew this, but I still had a go) (because why not). Check all buttons and switches before taking the photo, the realisation that it was on pinhole or bulb after I had taken the photo was painful. Also, the main thing to remember is that the viewfinder is square (because Diana’s take square photos) but, Emilyannlou, you are using 35mm so the photos won’t be square! Use your brain, it has to be cropped in some way.
Enough ranting on myself, here are a few photos from my first week of July.
Regardless, these first few days were great and I’m feeling good for doing this project. For the last few days I’ve been using my Olympus trip MD3, and once that’s finished I’ll share the photos. There was a film already in there so I had that processed first, and oh wow it’s about 17 years old. I’ll share a few of those photos another time.
Have a great day!
