I’m really struggling to shoot film at the moment, so here are some more digital snapshots from what felt like the longest month ever.
An update on where lockdown 2.0 finds me in terms of photography, and some snapshots I’ve taken over the last month.
Shooting portraits on film has a number of advantages, but isn’t without risk. I talk through my experience of this and give a bit of advice based on shooting it ‘in the field’.
I want to make it clear right at the start that I don’t only shoot film, but it’s the format I like most at the moment. It’s also the thing I get asked about the most by non-photographers. If you’re a film photographer, you’ll get asked these questions a lot…
The 50e is one of many 90s Canon bodies I own now, and it’s perfect for taking out when you have no idea what you’re going to get. It’s an autofocus camera and pretty tough, so I take it out to family walks or when conditions might be dodgy. That way I can always chuck it in the boot of my car and not worry about it, like I might a Leica.
