Diana Mini, her Bulb setting, and You.

You know that feeling, I know that feeling. Everything is going juuust fine- and then you see it. Terrified you realize...

…The bulb setting has been on the whole time?! But as lomographers, we have learned to take it with a grain of sand. You never really know what you’ll get when things of this nature happen, and that’s what my Diana Mini has thought me!

From what i understand, I am not the only person who has discovered how sneaky little Di can be with her bulb setting, so after I heard this, and before I got my first roll back from the lab, I had excepted the fact that half of my roll might be… unique? But I had no idea just how unique they would be. Instead of getting back a half roll of blurry mess, I got back pure magic! Beautiful colors with a mysterious haze, I couldn’t have asked for more!

So next time you notice the switch of your beloved Diana Mini pointing at the dreaded “B”, relax! maybe you’ll end up making some magic too!

If you would like to compare these pink bulb setting shots with the properly exposed shots, thay are living in my home just a click away!
