A day with the Diana F+

One hour of slide presentation and introduction to the camera usage and techniques, and then run around the town to take some pictures. These were the ingredients of the Lomography workshop about the Diana F+, which I attended on last September 21st.

I wanted to try it hands-on before purchasing it, and the workshop was more than a good chance to do it. Neverthless it has been a wonderful creative experience, I’m still a bit skeptical. The cool, old fashioned results are counterbalanced by the evident limitation of the camera. Extensions such as lenses, filters and other tools make the relationship with the camera really interesting, a bit less the one with my wallet (especially for the films).

However, the development of those picture – both digital and print – were included in the workshop fee, so I tried to do my best and, honestly, I got more satisfied than I was actually expecting.

The following is the photogallery including the 15 shots – one is gone – that I took on that Sunday afternoon. I used a Diana F+ in half frame mode, sometimes with the splitzer on.
