Photos from the Diana Mini

The Lomography Diana Mini camera was given to me as a Christmas gift a few winters ago, and honestly I have to admit - its a very complex camera despite the "cute" appearance of it.

I decided to take the challenge and create my own HANDMADE book for my Personal Project (if you dont know what that is, it's basically a year long project that's done in Grade 10). I took on an artistic approach and attempted to portray Hong Kong through a series of photos that were taken from my camera. Here are some of the photos included in the book:

Stone dragon at the Tin Hau Temple

Mid-Levels escalators

Traditional "Har-Gow" (shrimp dumplings)


Park N' Shop

These are some of the more successful and interesting photos out of the 3 rolls of film that I used. It definitely takes practice and patience when working with this camera. If you have any questions regarding the camera or anything else, and would like some tips from a user (note that I'm not a professional or anything haha), be sure to ask and I'll be glad to help!
