It’s Hip to be Square

Film…it is what it is, and you get what you get. I resisted going digital until my mom gave me a digi point and shoot for Christmas a few years ago. I had always shot film. My Canon AE-1 is still the bomb and is what I used while I was in college. The smell of a real photo lab brings back some pretty fond darkroom memories ;-) …I may have killed a few brain cells – but I digress…

My man knows the way to my heart. For Christmas I received this little gem…

…and included several rolls of 120 film. Enough to keep a snap happy girl happy for a while. I got to process the first couple rolls this week and discovered while I have to work out the kinks of my lovely Diana F+…I do love me some film. And I do love a square image.

Instagram has nothing on analog…

The Diana F+, if you are unfamiliar, has a couple different inserts that help determine the size of your image on the negative. (Or whether you get 12 or more images on a roll.) Well, I didn’t compensate for size and my film strips looked like a┬ápanoramic. Which is cool, but it wasn’t on purpose :-(

So I had to hand scan…

Hand scan = dust.

Dust is not a photogs friend…sigh

I love the simplicity of analog (maybe not the hand scanning). You kind of know what you’re going to get, but it’s always an adventure.

(yes, that is an orange wedged in a tree branch.)

I still managed to get a little lens flare ;-)

I’m linking up this week with Simple as That and The Simple Things

Run on over and check out some of the other simple lovelies.

Good Sunday, to you.
