Since I was young, I have only shot on DSLR or Digital cameras – so when I bought my film camera in London last year, needless to say – I was terrified. After biting the bullet (thanks to inspiration from one of my best friends – go and follow her instagram at @jasmineeskye (who is an expert at film)), I FINALLY got around to shooting my first roll. I sort of want to use this as a creative experiment – l am used to editing all my photos, I find it both exciting and nerve-racking as I let the camera do the work, rather than relying on taking a million photos – you have to get the perfect shot with film (something that I love!).
My first roll is nowhere near perfect – light leaks and grains, but I am happy with myself for actually taking photos (trust me – I was worried that I had taken a whole roll of film with no success!) – here they are!

I can’t wait to learn more about film, get a better grip on my camera (and using cameras manually) as well as feeling the rush of adrenaline when I finally get a new roll of film back! Onto the next photography session…
