Naturally I scoured the web looking for images of what the pinhole photographs might look like, but I didn’t find many. I’m looking forward to comparing the Diana pinhole with my Zero Image pinhole camera which I bought off of Flea Bay a couple years back. I was shocked to discover that the prices for Zero Image cameras had risen exponentially, even on Flea Bay.
I thought that I would get out and do a few tests this morning but the rain was too intense. So instead I took a couple of polaroids of what will be in my bag (I don’t post digital images on my site). The first picture came out with a huge light streak across it. Believe it or not this was a long exposure of 1 minute plus a flash set on full. The Holgaroid devours light. The flash had hit my chrome Diana which then bounced it across the frame. Very lomo.
I thought long and hard about a second attempt because right now Fuji FP-100 is out of stock everywhere and I’m taking all that I have with me. In the end I did try for a second image which was an epic fail! Overexposure. This is not good when you’re packing up to shoot, and crash and burn on a polaroid.
I intend on taking many polaroids so I should have at least one good one to post next week and catch you up on all of the lo-fi adventures.
