Roll of film 1, part 1

Hello void,

I’ve been looking forward to this for a couple of months. During that time, I’ve been shooting film for the first time in *forever*, using a cheap second-hand plastic point-and-shoot camera I bought for a tenner from eBay.

I’ve loved it. I’d forgotten what using a film camera was like. I’d forgotten about the texture and grain in the images. I’d forgotten the waiting, while film gets developed. I’d forgotten the cost.

I’m out of practice when it comes to shooting film. My exposures were all over the place, mostly over-exposed. Bright late summer skies didn’t come out the way I’d hoped they would.

But from a 36-exposure film, I think I got about a dozen or so keepers, and that’s pretty good work I think.

I’m keen to shoot more, despite the cost. It’s fun. Sometimes you have to pay for fun.

More next week.
