So Hamish put up a tweet recently about the possibility of sharing a whole roll of 36 images, warts and all, and the first thing I thought about when I saw that was “I can do that, I’ve got loads of awful photos to share”. The second thought I had was; “Why not show some of the very first photo’s you shot on film?” So that’s what I’m going to do here.
The Whole Roll
Hamish put a shout out on Twitter last week asking if anyone fancied sharing an entire roll of photos here on 35mmc. Having already done this a few times over the last few months on Twitter I jumped at the chance. Just like last week’s contributor, Jeremy Strange, I am a big fan of Eduardo Pavez Goye on YouTube and his Shoot Film episodes and took my inspiration for showing all the photos on a roll from him.
I probably watch too much YouTube, particularly reviews of cameras, film stocks, anything really that’s photography related. The problem is that the more I watch the easier is to think that that IS photography…and it’s not. Picking up your camera and shooting is. Being stuck inside in lockdown without an internet connection capable of streaming video (long story, don’t ask) has reminded me of that, so I decided to write some more articles like this for 35mmc. At least if I’m not out taking photos, I can try and contribute in other ways, right?
