6 July 2012
One purpose of this weekly post is to encourage me to try to find something positive in every week. This week I have been trying to squeeze as much creativity as possible into my waking hours outside of a rather uninspiring temp job. Sometimes staying awake too late – oops). Thinking of ideas for photography shoots, thinking of new things to put in my etsy shop and snapping some pictures on my new old camera during my lunch hour.
I am excited to get the film developed but still have a few more snaps to go. I have been trying to get a range of images from ‘urban landscapes’ (I am working in the City), to people, cats and flowers to see what the camera works best with. I hope I am not building it up too much and I am imaging that I will be sorely disappointed by the results. But I am looking forward to experimenting with some ‘fun’ film types like the ones from lomography.
Since my purchase I have also discovered some other people with old new Canon AE-1s or AV-1s so if you are interested in film why not go have a wander around their blogs:
They also happen to all be British based. It makes me feel like I belong to a secret society and that I keep accidentally bumping into secret members everywhere. Anybody else out there wants to be in the club?
Happy Friday everyone!
