Oh dear. The Medieval Historian bought me a new camera for my wedding anniversary present. It is a super low-tech Diana mini, which feels like a toy camera and uses 35mm film which you still have to get developed and wait for the prints. Ah, the nostalgia. I wanted one of these cameras because you can do double exposures and half frame prints and they have a slightly vintage-y kind of feel. But as with any photographs resulting in prints, I can’t help wanting to show you some results.
You can buy a little gizmo for turning the prints into digital form, but the man who develops mine throws in a free CD. This seems to be defeating the object a bit, but it does mean I can put the photos through a filter package I have on my computer. So here are some results. I promise it will not become a regular feature.
This is the split frame – which means you get 70+ photographs from a roll of film. These two pictures epitomise the urban landscape around my part of Bristol for me. This is another unfiltered multiexposure shots:
And this is what happens when you get the filter package out:
Lots of fun – and now to try printing onto fabric…
