Using A Lomography Diana Mini in a Studio Shoot

Here you go, it doesn’t take a fancy camera to get great results. I was recently invited by Nicholas Grobbelaar to join him on a  shoot and while I did have a Nikon D7000 on review the most fun – I think – for all including the model was shooting with the Diana Mini by Lomography. I cannot tell you what aperture it was set at, it only has two, Cloud and Sunny. I think it was set for Sunny.

    Looks nice. Did you alter the flashes to match the exposure?

      Nicholas was shooting with a Nikon D90 so we used that as the base for the exposure. I know that one of the two aperture settings on the Diana is around f11 so I took shots at both settings to safe guard. At the same time using colour negative film means you have about 2 stops of exposure latitude when you print. Does that make sense?
