As I mentioned in my last post, I bought a Diana Mini - a vintage reproduction film camera - for my photoshoot in London with Olivia Campbell. Pretty soon I expect I'll end up like one of those hipsters or don't-call-me-a-hipster types, with a shelf of cameras and lenses (I blame Jenni). Anyway, I had the film developed, and by far my favorite shots are the double exposures. There's even a triple exposure or two in there.
I didn't grab batteries for the flash, which was a mistake... so a lot of the shots are absurdly grainy. Actually they're all really grainy, it creates a sort of an impressionistic feeling - very pointillist. But it doesn't really matter for the double exposed shots, which is part of why I like them.
Olivia was a doll to work with, very sweet and really nailing it on the poses. She's got a great face with no bad angles... I'd love to shoot her again, hopefully once I've got a better handle on my equipment, and maybe only as a second shooter with a "proper" photographer on-site as well.
I can't wait to share more photos, particularly the wealth of Polaroids we snapped. I just have to finish scanning those and editing my grainy single exposures in Lightroom.
Well... okay... here's one single exposure to see you off!
