Travels on film

I got my first couple of rolls of film developed after having them sitting in my bedroom for several months. I had taken my film camera with me every now and then, taken shots here and there. I couldn’t really remember what I had photographed, the beautiful mystery of film.

I took the camera with me to the UK+Europe, but only had a handful of shots left on the roll. Each one turned out perfectly, and I’m so in love with this medium, it’s all I want to shoot. 

To me, film images have more than just a beautiful feel to them, you can actually feel them. They have a soul. 

I love shooting film because it feels precious. I slow down and think carefully about each image, the technical aspects and the artistic, everything is considered, because there is a finite number of shots I can take. 

Each shot is completely finished when it’s developed. I don’t take each image into Lightroom+Photoshop and play with colours and tones, polish it and edit it endlessly to make it a finished image that I am happy with, as I would with digital photographs. 

The imperfections are wonderful. I love the scratches, the grain, the textures. 

I feel like finally developing these rolls has rekindled my love for photography and inspired me to shoot for myself again.

 These images are an intimate look into my world. I hope you enjoy them. More to come.
