IN A FIELD

with 2 comments

Back in art college I shot film… I had a Lomo LCA and a polaroid… I loved it and I have hundreds of negatives sat in storage to prove it.

Then in 2000 I went digital… suddenly my appetite for shooting was satisfied… and I stopped shooting film.

Shooting film is still in vogue, and lots of people I admire LOVE it, so I thought I’d dip my toe back in. At christmas I was gifted a Diana and I had my Lomo LCA cleaned and serviced.

SO for the past 6 months I’ve been randomly shooting on both cameras.

And I had 6 rolls from the Diana and one from the Lomo to be developed… but I’m disappointed…

3 blank Diana rolls!

and only a handful of images on the remaining 3 rolls… some of which are so dark and dreadful! so I’m obviously doing something wrong…

I’m not so sure this film lark is for me anymore… it’s a lot of faff and expense… These were the only Diana images I vaguely like…

{The Lomo roll came out better I think, the colours are stunning and I’ll share some of those soon.}

    I was given a 35mm lomo for my birthday last year and I haven’t had any luck with it at all!

    I do love the holga I was given though, and the polaroids!!
