I needed a camera on a night out and decided to be extremely shallow and go for looks. Diana mini white with a white flash would suit my style for the evening. Black and white film would give me an edge but I never expected the results to be this good!
I’m a big fan of flash photography but my life is a little “daytime” so i don’t often get a chance to shoot this style.
Recently on a rare night out i decided to try out the Diana Mini with flash and some black and white film. I love the results with slightly soft images, a little burned (note to self, step further back next time) plus the good old grain of film!
Some shots were taken daytime using the flash as a fill light.
I initially backed our Petzval Kickstarter project so i would have a really nice Christmas present for my father. However with Christmas coming closer and closer, I decided that this lens would be a much more fitting gift for myself!
An adrenaline-packed football game might be the last place where one would expect to hear a grim news flash. However, it's exactly this situation that happened to the viewers of the game between the New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins during that fateful Monday night in December 1980.

My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.
Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
