More Diana Camera Pictures
Well, I was hoping that my Diana pictures from our trip to Taos would be really fabulous, but they're not. The batch was pretty overexposed, but I'm also not very happy with the local film processing. This is the second place I've tried that does not "get" the whole Diana thing. They crop photos oddly, and most annoying of all, they edit/don't print the entire roll because the pictures are overexposed and blurry. Um, Diana pictures are supposed to be overexposed and blurry. Why don't you let me take the pictures and I'll let you print them?
Sorry if this post is a bit of a rant. It's annoying to spend money on a service that businesses don't fully provide. One of the things I love about Diana photography is it's unpredictability, but if someone else is editing out the "bad" images I have no idea how other shots turned out! The images I did post here I had to scan, straighten, and re-crop myself (but other than that they are unretouched).
So I have a favor to ask of my readers . . . if you know of an online processing service where you can send your film and that will fully print the roll and send you everything, will you please post the link here? Because I think that is the probably the best option at this point.
You can see my earlier Diana rolls here and here.
