exposed! {and developed...}



Almost a full year ago, I won a Diana F+ lomography camera on Anna Wu's blog. Last week I finally got my first roll developed! Even though it took me a full year to take and develop that roll of film, I love this little camera. She sits on my studio dresser, next to some of my favorite art and design books and my pile of bright embroidery thread. 

There's something about taking film photos, waiting to get them developed and that gamble of not knowing whether they'll even turn out like you'd envisioned (my photos got a bit over- and double exposed but I love the "character" they have!)  I'm a girl who loves surprises so you know I am falling back in love with film. Now I've gotta start my next roll -- I have a feeling it'll go a lot quicker this time.









I'm thinking about buying the Instax Mini 7s for my next camera. Do you have that one? Do you love it?

Later this afternoon, I'm excited to host a really fun giveaway for you guys! My newest sponsor Lomography.com, is giving away a super suh-weet camera for you guys! It's so awesome, I am actually really jealous of you! Make sure to come back to check out the giveaway and enter to win!

  10. Love these photos! I completely agree about the film thing. I absolutely love my DSLR, but there's just something so nostalgic and exciting about pulling that old 35mm SLR back out of the closet.
    Can't wait to check out the giveaway! What a fun sponsor you landed! Congrats on that.
