Diana F+ 38mm on a Sony


I'm always looking at ways to spark some creativity and exploring how i can improve my basic photography skills. I often will artificially restrict myself in particular way, like only shooting wide open, high iso, low iso etc.

I came across the Diana lens series and liked that I would I have no way of changing the aperture and the big one, not a lot of focus ability. So even if i was tempted there would be no way of breaking the limitation. I am a bit of a perfectionist at times so it killed me to see that the lens on the adapter couldn't reach infinity, well it did in the center but no where else.

In the end I was happy to not be able to focus as I could focus more on composition and just enjoy using the camera without worrying about magnifying and missing any shots.
