Diana mini: second roll








So I got my second roll of Diana Mini back.... And I have to say that I am a bit disappointed.
I loved so much the double exposures on the first one, that I used them far too much.The consequence is that a bunch of photos are overexposed.
I agree with Dalva, the lack of control on this camera can be frustrating. But still... I like the feeling of not knowing exactly how it is going to turn out.
The roll got stuck and I had to rewind it a bit to start over again a few times, and these photos, accidental diptychs, are my favorites (first and last ones of this set).

Talking about favorites... The post of Hannah made me smile today. Your favorites are not always mine.
As I confessed to Marion, sometimes the photo that gets a lot of kudos is the one that I hesitated to post.
What does it say about me? Probably that I have no hindsight on my images.

One thing is sure though: blogging, sharing my photos, seeing yours make me wonder, think and evolve constantly. Thank you so much for your comments and feedback and for the inspiration I get from your blogs.

I am in agreement. I love the creative saturation I'm getting daily by looking at photos and reading posts. It keeps my mind and eye fresh. Keep doing what you're doing Elisabelle. :)

Francesca said...

It's always interesting to see the reactions of other people, and sometimes they come as a real surprise. So many other perspectives that transcend our own subjectivity ... that's why I love blogging:)!
PS what does a diana mini look like?

En tous les cas, le résultat est intéressant ! Il faut essayer, recommencer, éprouver ses idées... et un jour, une superbe image qu'on n'est pas prêt d'oublier en sort !

kristina - no penny for them said...

these are wonderful, elisabelle!

p.s.: i do know what you mean - i quite often feel that i judge my own pictures quite differently to others. so perplexing at times.

Ida Nielsen said...

Oh, the last one is my favourite!!
I tend to miss judge my photos too, I'll upload a bunch to flickr, chose only some of them to my blog and then get the most comments/favourites (on flickr) on the ones that I didn't show on my blog (?) :-)
