Your Diana+ loves the light and even if its dark out, you can still feed it its favorite by using bulb mod and letting in long exposures!
After the sun sets, don’t put your Diana+ camera back in your bag just yet. What you should bring out instead is either your tripod, a bean bag, a flash or actually, everything! For sharp and crisp images, you’ll need the tripod for stability and if you’re going to do really long exposures, the Diana+ Cable Release Collar. If you’re out street shooting and a tripod isn’t practical to bring along, just find a sturdy and stable surface to place your camera and shoot away. If you’re going to use a flash, make sure to fire it near the end of the exposure so that you can capture the motion leading up to the action-stopping burst of light!
Make sure to estimate the exposure time beforehand though! For you to get awesome results such as these you’ll have to be spot-on on the exposure. Embrace the night guys, and enjoy the gallery!
