A Little Trip to Borough Market with a Contax G2 – Part 1 – Kosmo Foto Agent Shadow 400 – By Joe Curzon

This article forms part 1 of 2. With this part focusing on Kosmo Foto Agent Shadow 400 and part two with a different film stock.

As a hobbyist, I find with film photography I currently have two modes of taking photos. One where I have a camera in my bag and slowly use up the film taking snaps interesting things I find while out and about. Then the other mode where I’ll set out to an interesting place and take as many photos as I can.

This time around I was keen to venture out and use a whole roll or two of film up. Living in London means there’s no shortage of interesting places to go to. Almost at random I felt Borough Market was worth a try not just for the photography but also for the food!

I fell out of photography a number of years ago with work and family life getting in the way. I used to be a professional photographer and I found that what sells wasn’t always what I enjoyed capturing so that compounded my move away. So I sold off most of the photographic equipment partly down to moving house but also the guilt of seeing money tied up in gear that wasn’t being used.

Many, many years ago, I shot film. I think I had a Zenit EM. There is a photo of me with it around my neck, but it’s too grainy to definitively see the make. After that camera was in stolen the mid eighties I never bought a replacement.

In the early noughties my late step-father left me his Nikon D100 and my passion for photography was reignited. Since then I have progressed to a D200, D700 and now the D850. I had forgotten about film, and all that process of waiting for weeks to get photos back from TruPrint and then wondering where the hell the photos were taken.

That was until last year when I was furloughed for a few months and bought the dream camera from my childhood, an Olympus OM1. Since then I’ve made up for lost time and bought quite a few 35mm and 120 cameras…
