FILM


i have recently fallen back in love with film...i can't believe i walked away for so long.

 i had the privilege of studying photography before the darkroom was obsolete, i learned to develop and print everything myself. i did assignments with medium format and made pinhole cameras, yet i got a digital camera and slowly forgot about anything else.

i decided to buy a film camera this year, just to make art projects for myself and revive a bit of joy and creative process back into photography. i was overwhelmed with how much i had forgotten about shooting a roll of film, exposure, the slowness of focusing, my index finger immediately calmed down, not so keen to capture every fraction of a second of action. i now had to pay for every crap shot.

The results of my first test film are nothing to blog about really, but i am in love with the texture and colour of these images even if they are bad scans developed in a cheap photolab. i have only added a bit of contrast.

This is Asher's birthday at our favourite restaurant Bellavedere. It's an organic winery/restaurant/cooking school in the Yarra Valley. We would like to exist there full time. Their degustation menu on a saturday night is an incredible experience. Do it if you live in the world.


From memory this is kodak 400 from coles :) On Contax RX
