I, Florecilia, have lent my Diana Mini loaded with a film to my friend Natalia and I have turned her into a "Lomographer for a Day". Take a look what she's done!
Take that camera and have fun! It’s the basic tip on getting into Lomography, with a camera in hand and film loaded in it.
What a shame with feared mode B, the small lever that moves although you do everything possible so that it remains in its place! Despite that, here you have the results of the experiment and some words of the protagonist:
When was the last time you shot with an analog film?
Many years ago! Maybe 10!
How would you describe the experience in 5 words?
It felt like going back to my childhood, I loved the magic of not knowing how the photos would look until the end.
Which of all the photos you took is the one you like most and why?
There is one special photo, taken in a river nearby. There were rocks and water flowed between them, falling down free… I made an overexposure of the scene and I loved the result.
If you could teleport yourself to any place of the world with this camera and lots of films, which would it be and why?
One of the places I’ve always wanted to go is Egypt. I’d love trying thousands of photo positions of all the things there are to see there. Villages, people, markets, pyramids, the Nile…
Now you know a little bit the lomography world, what camera would you buy?
The Sprocket Rocket. I think it would be the perfect camera to take with me to Egypt.
Mmmm I think she’ll finally buy a camera.
