Started something but never finish it - like a roll of film? Try this Dymo Label modification for your Diana+!
For me, although I’m an impatient little lady sometimes (refer to my LC-A piggy countdown) I can also be a tearaway at starting something and not finishing it!!
After coming across my original Dymo machine at a carboot sale I knew I had to buy it! It was one of those items that was a total bargain and I just “had to have it” but when I got home the shadow of doubt appeared and I was dubious as to why I even bought one. That was until matt explained about the Sunny 16 rule (for the umpteenth time!) and I thought what better for me to do than to make a note… a note in true analogue style!
My label making soon went crazy labelling everything, with anything – ANALOGUEHASTAKENOVER! (yay!) But although impatient, I also have the attention span of a 4 year old and with a large collection of analogue cameras I knew I had to find some way of tracking what was on each film, where I’d been, what kind of film, any kind of notes that I needed to make at that time.
P.S. Dymo is great for labelling your Lomo mug at work with how you take your tea/coffee!

Just recently I asked myself why I would want to write about a film like the Fuji Instax Mini, because usually this film is the only one available for Fuji Instax cameras. But then it hit me! It can be an alternative to many other instant films, since I can load almost any film into my Diana F+, other medium and 135 format cameras, and of course the Fuji Instax Mini.

My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In January, I tried some camera add-ons. If you want to add a bit of extra bling to your pictures, you can put something either in front of or behind your lens. In this case, I did both.
One of the best things about analogue photography is the unpredictability in the outcome of your photos. Make things a little more exciting by trying out an experimental film like the Adox Color Implosion for 35mm cameras!

Please help me if you can!
