Black and White Film
I love taking photos. My poor friends are constantly faced with me swinging my DSLR about at social gatherings. They have an excellent selection of candid portraits now (somewhere that I think my strengths lie) and they've learnt that it's just a part of me. I do, of course, put the camera down to take part as well but in the last few months I've also been experimenting a bit with film.
I think it's so funny to think that when I first started taking photographs as a child, film was the only option. You just pointed, shot and hoped it worked! Now I've become so used to using a digital camera and checking the photograph I've just taken and then snapping a few more until I like it. So I wanted to challenge myself to just get on with it and play around with film.
Looking back at these is funny. I was a bit careful with my shots, often only whipping my camera out to take one photo and then putting it away, so these are from London, Bournemouth, Cornwall and I think maybe even Norfolk! I certainly want to continue playing with film- and maybe this time I'll be a bit less precious!
p.s. Want to see some film colour photographs I've already shared?
