Every time I go to Veracruz from Mexico City I try to take photographs of the desert from the bus, because I really like the moving landscape, and being in the middle of somewhere. Mexican desert is the best, magical, with lagoons, unknown archeological sites, lizards, UFO`s (some people say, and I would like to lomo-prove it), and much more stories and characters travelling or living around. Lots of things to do, places to stop for a few minutes to grab a bite, or simply to buy things from people waiting by the road bumps. It is nice, your vision gets lost, your mind wonders, and the finger keep pressing the shutter.
You can make this tipster even if you are all thumbs. Within a couple of minutes you can tinker a Splitzer for your Diana Mini!
You can never go wrong with Diana F+. A mistake which turned out into nice bursts of colors makes me want to do it more and more -- again and again. Leave your 120mm films for a while -- Let's move to 35mm, and enjoy the happy colors of the light leak.
Since I got into analogue photography, I´ve only developed one roll in the lab: they took one day to develop and scan it, and then I found out they hadn’t scanned the sprocket holes… I really needed a scanner and knowledge on processing/developing!!
For less than a hundred bucks worth of equipment you can easily start developing your own black and white negatives. The cost of the chemicals works out to be less than $1/35mm roll or a little less than $2/120 roll. If you like to take a ton of pictures and don't have a lot of money to spend developing your own negatives is a lot cheaper and easier than you could possibly have imagined.
Wanna make those black, round borders left from your Diana F+ with Fisheye useful? Check this out...
Fancy shooting on BOTH sides of the film? Try this and you'll be surprised with the pictures you get!
