FILM - TRYING NEW THINGS
I AM not a photographer. Those of you who are skilled in this area have my respect and adoration. As someone who works in the media, I rely on a good photographer. Photography is a way to clinically document life and current events, but it's always a form of creative expression. These juxtaposing elements are what draw me to photography, and in particular film photography.
Recently I bought a second hand Olympus OM 2N camera. Hillvale in Brunswick scan and upload film photos as digital files for about $10 a roll, making this an accessible and affordable new hobby. I like the mechanical process of shooting film. The metering of light. The way you have to pay attention to where the sun is, what your surroundings are.
Here are some of my favourite photographs from two recently developed rolls.
