Diana in the daylight
Something strange happened this football season. I photographed several more daytime football games than I usually do.
I love the daytime games because the light is better, deadline is far away and I should be able to get home (or to my hotel room) before midnight.
I took advantage of the daylight by bringing my plastic Diana F+ camera with me to most of the games. The small aperture of the camera and slow film speeds make it best suited for daylight photography. To add an even stranger look to the pictures than you get by just using a camera made of plastic, I used slide film and then had it cross processed in C-41 chemistry, normally used for color negative film.
The effect of the soft, plastic lens on the Diana and the contrast and green color cast from the cross processing give an eery and impressionistic look to the photos.
It’s like the Instagram filters done the old fashioned way.
Here are some of the pictures from the Diana.
