Diana Camera 2

These landscapes , made on the Diana Camera, were also made around the Lancefield area (1991) ... they also were made using the multiple exposure method ...it's a sort of 'gestural' way of making photographs.

Diana Camera 1

Continuing my series of posts relating to images I have made using my collection of  toy, plastic, kids cameras, here are a few made using a Diana Camera ...
The two images below were taken in Lancefield, way back in 1991... they were made using my multiple shutter click method (usually 4 to 5 per image)
But firstly, here is what a Diana looks like... and here is a link to some info on the Diana plus a link to the associated blog...

Banner Camera

Continuing the theme of working with cheap, plastic kid's cameras... you can't get much cheaper (and more 'plasticky') than a BANNER .... mind you, they are getting harder to find now and are still a desirable tool for making interesting work. They use 120 Roll Film, so still are capable making a decent image despite the plastic lens. Sometimes I make single exposure images, but often use deliberate 'camera drag' or multiple exposures ...
Here is what one looks like ...

Here some pics I made in 1991 that I have finally got around to working on ...
