I Will Follow You Into The Dark


If ever you’re going to spent some analogue shooting in a very dim environment and if you’re worrying the issues attached on using such old-fashioned cameras, this tip should make things a bit easier…

I was going to a metal concert and I decided to take my Diana, I realised it would be hard in the dark to see the film numbers through the red counter window. This may just be common sense but I decided to take a tiny light torch, it was very handy. I may be reiterating the actions of many other lomographers but I just thought it was a helpful hint. It certainly worked for me.

    I use the red bulb on the back of my Diana flash to show me the numbers in the window - works really well :)
