First Photos with the Diana Mini!
I have wanted to experiment with lomography for some time but have always been a little shy about taking pictures. After consulting with my friend and fellow blogger, (the human) Diana I decided to start with the Diana Mini. The affordability of this little camera + the 35mm format made picking out my first toy camera pretty easy. These pictures are from my very first roll, taken this weekend, and I was like a kid on Christmas morning when I went to the lab to pick up the prints. Many of my photos didn't come out at all (helpful tip- take OFF the camera lens cap before shooting) and the double exposures were a complete accident but that's all part of the experience I think. I love my Nikon DSLR but I think the Diana Mini might just have become my new best friend. Just like any friend, I plan on taking lots of time to get to know her, see what she likes and dislikes and maybe even gift her with some fun accessories (like a flash). I'll report back on the status of the relationship regularly, I hope :)
