My Film Photography!

I have been into film photography in one form or another for about 7 years now! The spark was ignited by my dad, who has a passion and talent for film photography and I have always been surrounded by it as an artform. Check out my dad’s blog here and his flickr here! The extent of my own film usage has mainly been in the form of Instax Mini cameras – I have the Mini 90 which I absolutely love and I think the physical, instant aspect of the medium is great.

More recently, my dad gave me one of his 35mm film cameras and I have enjoyed messing around with it. Although I’m by no means an expert and have only shot a few rolls so far, I’m happy with some of the results I have been seeing.

Above is a series of photos I have taken around Liverpool, UK, where I went to University. My favourite places to photograph in the vibrant city are Sefton Park and the Georgian Quarter. Liverpool is such a gorgeous city with so many hidden gems which I am constantly discovering. I love how you can almost feel the crisp, autumnal weather in these photos and the contrast of the old buildings with the budding natural world.

In September I took a short holiday to Oslo, Norway – which I talk about in this post. I loved taking my film camera with me on this trip as it is such a beautiful city.

There is a bit of a pattern to these photos – statues and nature. My favourite thing to do is get outside and wander around aimlessly with a camera. I love the movement you can see in the water fountain photos and the reflection of the statue on the bench in the last photo.

These are just a few of the photos I have been taking and I can’t wait to share more with you! Watch this space.
