This isn’t a film review. These aren’t carefully selected photos. Last week, I went outside near my home with a roll of Kodak Technical Pan to make the most of some fog. The results seem to have got me excited enough to write out a few hundred rambling words over the next few paragraphs. So that’s what this is.
I’ve realised recently that I don’t share my photos enough. I show pictures of my daughter to my family, but other than that, I have basically no audience. Almost all my spare time is related to photography: taking pictures, developing film, scanning film, editing, listening to podcasts, reading books & articles. But this all happens inside a vacuum, a bubble that I’ve created for myself. Though part of me agrees with Hamish’s idea that the process is as important as the results, that I could potentially take pictures without ever really seeing them, I’ve recently come to see the whole thing as being pointless if I don’t show them to people.
