Creative Analogue Photography

Handmade CSS Design Christmas Tree photograph for the Back in Time Article

Image of the Diana F+ camera from LomographyOver Christmas Santa brought me a Diana F+ from Lomography, which is a retro design analogue photographic camera. It was my first experience with a completely manual, medium format 120 camera!

The lightweight plastic body, the simple shutter and the stylish retro 60’s design clip-on flash surprised me. Being accustomed to the digital format, it felt strange that I couldn’t see the results instantaneously before I had the photographs developed. The developed photographs which at times had a double or triple exposure on one photograph produced both incredible and surprising results, which were dreamy, colour-drenched, and basically mind-blowing images.

In the last three photographs in this article, I experimented by allowing light into the camera by opening the rear door which contains the film for a split second. This in turn created the interesting burn effects on the photograph’s, as well as, parts of the letters from the processing are revealed, kind of cool, hey!

It was a really fun and thrilling first fully analogue experiment, now shared with you to!

I always chase perfection in my digital photographs, but in this case the opposite rings true, which is: imperfection matters!
