These are photos from the first two rolls of film I shot using my Diana F+ Lomography camera. (Click on the word "Lomography" to learn more about it!) The first roll of film, which was black and white, was shot around my yard in Des Moines, Iowa. The second roll, which had color film was shot while I was in East Tawas, Michigan during the 4th of July holiday. I really like the double exposure picture that I did of Oliver. It happened because I was on my last picture of the roll and the light was so wonderful that I figured it couldn't hurt to try! Now I want to try some more double exposure pictures (maybe with the color film too!) I'll keep posting my efforts with my lomo camera as I learn more about it and get better at using it as a tool!

Hey! Yeah! I got mine on Amazon.com which was the cheapest I found, but you can get one from lomography.com too, I think.

It takes really pretty pictures!

Candace, these are awesome. The only problem is that you completely pulled me out of what I was doing for 20-30 mins so I could look at the pictures and find out more about it.

You need to post more of these when you get a chance.

Hej - thank you for your lovely comment! You made me curious about your work (which I think is great, compliments! Wonderful lines!) and I totally crushed on the lomo pics - I thought about getting a Diana for a while, and now it's sure: I will. The colours are just amazing, and the double exposure picture has some kind of magic about it... anyways, thank you and all the best wishes!
