NINA LIANE RICHARDS

Your Creative Solution

Log

Our family vacation to visit my aunt in uncle in Vermont was perfect. I got the chance to try out the square mask for my Diana F+ to get 16 shots instead of 12. The mask definitely kept the vignetting and lens distortion at bay. I also tested out the premium glass lens and I think it worked beautifully. The images were crisp and sharp while still retaining the dreamy quality the Diana produces.

The hike up the mountain was tough but worth the stunning view. Drogo had a great time meeting other hikers--humans and dog alike.

The black and white images were shot without a mask to get 12 shots. I also used the plastic lens that came with the camera. They were taken on 120 Ilford Delta 400 film at Flagponds Nature park near Calvert Cliffs, Maryland.
