week 18: the colors of spring


last week i spent a few days in the countryside of the Mühlviertel, a region in the north of Linz. the weather was beautiful, as was the landscape. all the trees were in full blossom and there were thousand or even millions of yellow dandelions all over the grass.

thankfully i had my diana f+ with me, 2 rolls of film and all my diana f+ lenses. i loaded a roll of fujichrome velvia 100 into my camera, walked around and shot the film with different settings – well, at least the few settings you have, when shooting with a diana ;)

i tried different aperture settings (aka the sunny or the cloudy symbol), so some are a little bit more overexposed than others. i read somewhere on the internet, that you would get more different colors, when the film is overexposed, and not only purple. i think thats mostly true (compared to a roll i shot a couple of weeks ago in different light condition). but in the super sunny weather the “sunny symbol” would have been just fine.

i also shot with all my diana f+ lenses: the original 75mm diana lens, the 55mm wide angle and the 38mm super wide lens. i like to have a choice, but i think i still like the 75mm lens best.

i will post the other roll of film (a lomography slide 200) in the next few days, in the meanwhile have a look at the beautiful colors of spring and cross processed fuji velvia:

    entwickelst du deine 120er Filme selbst oder kennst du ein gutes Labor? ich hab einige Rollenvon denen ich noch immer keine Abzüge habe :(

    @guinastrapazi hi! nein, ich entwickle meine filme nicht selbst, ich lass sie meistens bei foto strobl in linz entwickeln. das hilft dir in weiz aber wohl nicht recht weiter... ;) aber probiers mal mit DM oder happyfoto. da hab ich bei beiden schon mal 120er filme entwickeln lassen, abzüge lass ich aber nur selten machen, ist ja doch recht teuer.
