Introducing the Minidi

Finally got my hands on the Diana Mini! What an awesome birthday gift, all thanks to THE girlfriend!! 😉

My 1st go on the Mini was a humbling experience. I could no longer just point and shoot at a whim like how I used to do it with my Superheadz UWS. Had to adjust the aperture, the mode, flash on/off and remember to wind to prevent accidental double exposure. You have to consider alot more things before taking the next pic. I didn’t and I lost a considerable amount of shots. The only saving grace was shooting the roll on half frame mode, so I had  more shots to choose from (or more shots to screw if you look at it the other way).

So I shall present to you the few presentable shots I have from this roll of Provia 400 which was cross processed. I took the liberty to crop some of the half frames as I thought they looked better on their own.

#1 Day out at Marina Barrage. Freaking. Packed.

 

#2 That’s us and the half frames I was talking about. Typically, a roll of 135mm film has 36 exposures. With half frames, you get 72. Double the exposures, double the fun (and lesser the pain for my wallet)

 

#3 Cute kid with an even cuter baby brother. You can spot him on all fours on the damp muddy patch.

 

#4 My attempt at double exposure. Didn’t turn out as good as I had hoped. Oh well I need to try harder next time.

 

#5 This I like! Just so happens the structure in both pictures kinda form a circle. And binbin’s expression is classic. Heh.

 

#6 I got caught in a rare moment of seriousness. No, I wasn’t playing games on my phone. I was checking directions. Cereal-ly!

 

#7 Rounding this series up with an awesome night shot of me. Well done bb!

 

I guess that is all that is worth showing from my 1st roll on the Mini. Hopefully, I can pick up from here and have better shots to share in the future.

Even though the results weren’t as good as I had hoped, I had lotsa fun scuttling about, taking pictures with bb. Thanks again for everything! You da best!

Not forgetting my friends for their birthday wishes and celebrations. Thank you guys!!

Red Date

My 1st experience with a Lomo Redscale Negative. This was on the Superheadz UWS (which is on the verge of breakdown, damn me and my clumsy ways) again. Nuff said, let’s jump straight into the pictures!

#1 Loving the pensive, super cereal look. Cerealiously.

#2 Still have no idea which one of us is this and who took this shot. Love the colour nonetheless.

 

#3 Instant favourite. There is just something about those empty benches.

 

#4 You know you just wanna jump right in. Go on. Do it.

 

#5 Let’s ride off into the sunset

 

#6 The perfect way to wind down the weekend (:

 

That’s about the best of the bunch from my virgin redscale roll. Some were slightly underexposed but it’s part and parcel of experimenting. It works really well in bright sunlight and has a richer burst of red compared to the Velvia 100. More like an orange burst. You get the idea.

Okay that’s the end of my post for all you regular readers out there. Go click on the address bar and go check out some food/porn/games, whatever is your poison. Or you can buy my stuff.  The below concerns none of you except for my special reader. No s. Move along now.
