toy camera - Patrick Arnold

These images are all taken on 120 B&W film with a vintage Diana toy camera or one of similar style. The cheap plastic uncoated lens, light leaks and lo-fi quality exposure controls and image resolution produce an immediate, instinctive, intimate and very warm analog feel to the pictures that polished modern digital techniques lack. This is my creative antidote to the highly controlled studio work I shoot as part of my commercial job each day.
