For a while now I’ve been itching to try shooting film again.
Ever since I bought my first Digital SLR camera I’ve shot virtually no film at all. I love the look of film still though and some of my favourite photographers shoot exclusively on film.
Evelyne knew of my interest in shooting film again and, as a surprise for my birthday, invited Ashton Jean Pierre up to Birmingham to meet with me and advise me a little on how he uses film cameras to create some gorgeous images.
I’m not going to be shooting film at weddings any time soon but I’m pretty sure I’ll be investing in a new film SLR when I have some spare cash. I loved spending some time with Ashton, and Emma Case who came with him, and taking photos without auto-focus and even enjoyed the anticipation of getting images back from the lab. Just like the old days…
Not all were great. Not all were in focus. But some were pretty decent… And I never sat in front of a computer editing once!
Big thanks to Ashton, Emma and my gorgeous wife 🙂
