/Diana F+/120 Film/Analogue Camera/
I’ve always been interested in experimenting with film photography and since gaining my Diana F+ my interest has only grown. It’s been challenging switching from a digital SLR camera and sometimes I can’t quite believe that in one small ‘click’ the image has been captured. However, I love the depth of colour in these prints and the unpredictable quirks you gain from analogue cameras.
As a beginner, I’m still learning the different techniques and getting the right exposure when shooting indoors is a challenge. These images were shot on Lomography Colour Negative 400 ISO 120 Film, which is a great film for new starters as it works well in different lighting conditions, brings out the boldness of the colours and captures the sharpness of your image.
The only downfall to 120 film is the cost. I’ve struggled to find film developing services and therefore, not only have to pay for my prints, yet also the cost of postage. I’m currently looking into buying a negative film scanner, however, again this is made difficult by the fact I’m utilising 120 film and not the more common 35mm.
The Diana F+ does have an exclusive 35mm back accessory which could be a great alternative, meaning I could shoot on my Diana F+ with the convenience of 35mm film.
