Lomo Midwest farm

Corn field near Three Oaks, Michigan.

 

In part because of my large queue, and the fact I couldn't figure out which image I liked most out of these, and 120 film only has 12 images, blah blah blah... I thought it would be fun to just post a whole roll of film.

 

The Diana+, made by Lomography, is a replica of the Diana camera made by the Great Wall Plastic Factory in China in the 1960's. Meant as a novelty for kids, it (and its clones) became the fave of lomographers looking for quirky cameras. Its plastic lens creates odd focus, and its unreliable construction leaks light and has other fun flaws.

 

The Diana+ is a medium format camera, taking 120 film, and creating 12 6x6. This film is rather more expensive to both buy and process than 35mm film. The camera has four exposure settings, and focal length can be adjusted somewhat. In this roll, the light leaks come not from the camera, but from the roll not rolling up tightly. I used expired Fujifilm Velvia, ISO 100.
