Welcome to the second installment of our Captured photo journal series. This time around we’ve teamed up with the brilliant Greg White. I was eager to see what Greg would shoot for this, as the results tend to be fairly raw (as you can see) and Greg’s style is ultra clean and futuristic. For this series we sent Greg a Diana+ Mini.

Thoughts from Greg:

When I received the Diana Mini camera I was surprised at the size and feel of it. I decided to take it with me on a job to Svalbard, Norway. It was great fun shooting a few frames with this camera after using much more technical cameras. However it feels a bit like a toy so I had a few odd looks from passers by when they saw what I was holding up to my eye! The limited options on the camera mean that you are never quite sure of what you are going to get and for me especially, I like to have control over what I am shooting, so this camera seemed somewhat strange. But having seen the results I’m pleasantly surprised and sense that this is what lomography is all about, the fun of inaccuracy, that feeling of not knowing, the anticipation, relief and surprise when the film returns from the lab as well as the added bonuses of happy mistakes!

The feel and look of the images that I shot are really interesting and the cameras tendency to overlap frames and leak light really adds another dimension to the images. It’s almost like having some nice postproduction work done in camera!! I’ll definitely be taking it with me on more occasions to grab shots, especially if they turn out with this aesthetic or something else, who knows?

Special thanks to Lomo for providing the camera and film. Also to Ritz Camera for the processing.
