i don't have one, but my mentor, a professional photographer, carried a Diana all throughout Europe and said that although it could produce beautiful images, many scenes didn't work for the soft focus and vignetting that make Diana pictures so interesting. He used all black and white film and used black tape to cover light leaks, as he got his secondhand on Ebay.

Yea, they produce very distinctly beautiful images, I think it's really a knack to be able to use one properly

Very nice indeed. What film did you use? I've tried Velvia slide film and the results are really cool.

Here are mine:

My one tip is to make sure you shoot with the right mask in. I had the 12 shot mask in and shot 16 frames which is why the edges are double exposed.

About the price of a Holga, but better built.

I got my first Holga a while ago (i say first because i'll probably get another at some point). I think it help take myself out of shooting and gets into more visualization. Something i've not been very good at with my other photowerks. Its a very fun format to use (120 b&w for me) and i think from the looks of your pics, you've got the feel for it. The double exposures whether intentional or not, seem to really be cool. Great fun.
