Serralves em Festa

Serralves em festa” is an annual artistic event held at Serralves Gardens and Museum, in Oporto, Portugal.

During “40 hours non-stop”, everyone can watch (and sometimes participate) in dance, music and creative events – and also workshops! For all ages 😉

And it’s totally free!


The Diana F+ Experience – 2

As I promised (long ago), here are some new photos taken with my Diana F+.

Being a rational person, it’s still hard for me to “let it go” and shoot without thinking. First of all, I’m used to think before shoot; and, moreover, 120mm film is expensive and one can only take a few picture!

Nevertheless, this time I’ve tried to shoot with the 16cms x 16cms square border to avoid vignetting and to take more photos than the usual 12.


Hope you enjoy 🙂


The Diana F+ experience


I finally managed to get my film developed: three 120 mm rolls and one 35 mm slide roll. One of the 120mm came empty, which does not surprise me since it was the first one I took. The results of the other two really catched my eye, I love the grain and light.

I used Fujifilm Reala for this first experience and it was a nice choice: it is a cheaper film, great for the first experiments and to get used to the camera. i now need more rolls – do you have any suggestions?

Meanwhile, here some the pictures:

Thank you! Have a great weekend! 🙂

To do

I have two rolls to develop: one 35mm slide film and one 120mm film, which is my first experiment with my Diana F+. Let’s see if I manage to go the shopping centre and leave them at the studio. I’m curious about it!

More cross-process (the second roll, finally developed!).


Must post some of my shots with my Polaroid here. 🙂
I really enjoy that shoot-and-get-photo feeling: it’s different from either digital or developed film photography.
Besides, my camera doesn’t take the traditional 600 film; instead, it’s a 70 camera, so the photo is a clean rectangle! ^^

Amazing 🙂
