Daniel Schultz

This set is by Daniel Schultz (ddddaniel on Flickr)

Daniel shot the double exposures with a point-and-shoot camera he bought at a thrift store for $2. He prefers to shoot on film he buys at second-hand stores when he can find it. Daniel doesn't do a lot of portraiture, so few people show up in his photographs; his great interest is in lines and spaces interacting in urban settings: "urban geometry."

We think this is a really beautiful collection of images, the colours are stunning and the compositions make them so interesting - there's a lot going on to draw the eye, and almost as if there's pictures within the pictures. Great work.

Mallory Shriver

This set is by Mallory Shriver (malloryshriv on Flickr)

Mallory shot these photos using an old Minolta X-370 that she got from her mother.  She chose to capture the land near her house and destroy the photos to symbolize how we are destroying nature not just in her tiny rural town, but across the globe.

She then soaked it in a cup of bleach for one minute before taking it in for developing. Mallory says she loves destroying film for the meaning behind it and the sheer excitement of not knowing if or how the photographs will turn out.

We think she has achieved amazing results. We love the colours!

Diana F+ Review

My friends bought me a Diana F+ for my birthday back in January, but I've only just had the first film back. Oops!

I did find it really difficult to use though which was perhaps why I wasn't more keen to use it. I don't like how when you wind it on it doesn't stop on the next exposure like 35mm film cameras do, you have to keep your eye on it to make sure you don't wind too far. This is perhaps why I only got 4 photos out of the whole roll (two the same), as opposed to the 12 I was supposed to get!

I really like the look of the photos though so perhaps with more practice I'll get the hang of it! I just loaded another film, using the youtube video below for help, so I'll get using it soon.  I made a bit of a rookie mistake of putting the film in the wrong side of the camera, then wondered why it wasn't winding on! Fail.

Oh and in case you're interested I used Lomography Color Negative 120 film :)
