Intern Diary: Camping Out with My Diana F+

Since my internship is taking place in the summer, I haven't had the chance to go on a summer break at all. But last weekend I decided to just go ahead. My friends and I left early Saturday morning and headed out to Hallstatt, Austria. Of course I took my Diana F+ with me, check out the funky pictures I snapped! And by "funky", I meant not so good.

Before we got to our camping place, we had to take a small ferry to cross the Hallstätter See (lake).

The place was beautiful. The pictures I made are far from justice. And I do admit that I scanned them at a low resolution. It was already late and I just don’t have the patience. But when I have free time, I will scan them again properly, because I do get this “wow, cool” feeling whenever I see the preview of the scans.

Back to the camping trip, as we reached our camping place, I noticed a sign that said, “Craw along!” Having written so many articles the last couple of years of my life, I tend to be bothered by these misspellings.

So we dropped off our bags, set up tent and continued our exploration of this romantic little village.

I know, you’re probably asking, “Are these photos accidentally cropped?” No, they’re not. I was using a 35mm back on my Diana F+ and I just didn’t get it that what I saw in the viewer is not what I will get in the picture.

I also need to work on my scanning skills, as well as clean up my scanner. I see all these dust particles being scanned with my photos. But all in all, I am pretty happy that I am making some progress in improving my analog skills! I still have 3 rolls of film in the lab, one of them is from a Spinner 360°! Can’t wait to see the results!

My Diana F+ is now loaded with 120 film. This way, at least, I can predict what my pictures will look like. Wish me luck on my next adventure, The Flea Market!

But before that, back to work…

The Diana F+ is a new twist on the ‘60s classic cult camera. Famous for its dreamy and soft-focused images, the Diana F+ is now packed with extra features such as panorama and pinhole capabilities. Available in our Online Shop.

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

I have captured moments, memories, and dreams this year, which is my favorite thing to do. This is a short version and visual diary of my year 2014.

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

This happened two years ago but I still remember my biking route. To all of you who haven't been to Ubud, I think you should visit the place and try to go around in a bicycle!

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.

    An Afternoon in Tagaytay Highlands

    I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.
