First Film Rolls of 2021

A few images from the first two rolls of film shot on the Leica M6 this year.

It’s been sometime since I’ve shot film and so thought it about time I loaded my Leica M6 with a roll of film and got out to grab some film photos.

A plan Indeed

I love shooting film but hate waiting to finish the film/getting the film back from the lab.

The instant gratification I get from digital, spending time out pointing a camera at things and being able to see those results instantaneously is almost like a drug. I don’t want to wait, we live in a world of instant gratification for almost everything and photography is no different.

Gloucester Quays on Tri-X

Had a wander round the Gloucester Quays area on Sunday.

The One’s That Got Away

I have a checkered past with film cameras. Since getting back into film a few years ago now I’ve bought and sold quite a few cameras that looking back I should have kept.

Adventures in Film

Adventures in film, so what’s that all about then? Well, as much as I shoot digital I also have a love/hate relationship with film photography.
