Diana Mini, Flash, Square Format, Black and White and in your face!

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.

    Yeah, there was supposed to be a line crossing out "want" but it's been many years since I've been on myspace and I don't think my brain likes me haha

    I love almost all of them... the little bit of burned and over exposed is the speciality of it, and i do really love them...
