Diana F+ - Structural Doubles


Inspired by ndroo’s Lubitel+ tip a few weeks ago a friend and I decided to give structural doubles a shoot with our Diana F+.

Some days ago I saw the beautiful tip from ndroo for the Lubitel+ camera, where he shot doubles with the first layer capturing structures and the second layer portraits.

The gallery was really beautiful and I showed it to a friend: Florian. We decided to try it as well, but instead of using Lubitel’s we tried the Diana F+. So each of us grabbed a Diana and a Flash, two rolls of film (Kodak T-Max 100, Rollei R3 and Fuji Pro 160S) and we went out to take our 32 shots of anything we found outside. Trees, stones, and walls.

We then went back home to rewind the films (Being able to rewind 120 film is such a a great advantage with the new Lubitel+!) under a blanket in a darken room. We then shot portraits of each other, sometimes dressing up sometimes using accessories!

It was a great evening with lots of fun and it was also my friend Florian’s first time using a Diana camera! I really love the results of this session which except for great pictures had another happy ending, I lent Florian my Diana with the 35mm back and I think that he is addicted now!

    Cool. It definitely looks way more fun doing it with a partner. Hmm. Wait. That sounds a little bit wrong. Haha. Good doubles.
