Experiments with the Diana F+ on pinhole settings! The ups, the downs and the absolute failures ;) Sorry for all the photos being loose, but I was having a fight with the emedding ;)
As an experiment I took off the lens from my Diana F+. I had been playing around with the different lenses, not really finding my ideal partner in crime yet.. The Diana has this awesome option, and I had seen a lot of pictures of people operating their pinholes with great ease and splendid grace. So I reconnend I could give it a shot.
The results were.. surprising..
I have two roles of blur and light flashes.. (I didn’t bother scanning more than four)
I did get some nice results though.. The first photo has some nice light leaks, while the second shows what I wanted it to show (small happy dance!). The third photo, taken at one of the train stations in The Hague doesn’t show what I intented it to show, but did work out..
Of course, almost no experiment is complete without my cat friend showing up somewhere.. In the first photo, I unfortunately only caught his ears, but in the second, I have a nice silouette of him against one of the windows.
So what has my little experiment taught me? Well, that I need to let go of the ISO 400 more.. I did already buy some new film to continue with my learnings! Also, I learned, this whole lomo business is harder than it looks! ;)
So how did you learn to operate your pinhole? Or are you still learning? Any tips are more than welcome!
