going old school ...

So i admit i haven't been great at this whole blogging thing ... life just kind of you know happened! But here i am today with some pretties to share (& i have a whole lot more waiting to blog about so i should probably get on that). Anyways these are all film ... something i am playing around with right now. I have a huge collection of cameras I want to shoot with & i was lucky enough to be blessed with some free film to test out. So enough talk here are some of my recent favourites ...

These were shot in cambridge one morning in March (i think) ... it's my first time shooting b&w in probably about 10 years. But i love these. They were shot on a Zenit ET that i have discovered comes with a few light leaks but then again i did only pay £20 for it & it has a beautiful lens! & they are shot on Kodak Tri-x ISO 100. 

& here's a few from deepest darkest north west England ... The Wirral & Merseyside to be exact. Shot in the past few weeks whilst i was up there "working" (I have so very many pretties to share with you from that trip) on a Lubitel 166B on Kodak Portra 120 at ISO 160. 

I do have to admit i am loving the "individuality" that comes with shooting with my film cameras, i never know just what i will get. & with the exception of maybe touching up some "dust" these are all straight out of the camera. I can't wait to print some up for my home (maybe one day i will get to do it by hand again) & possible offer them for sale!

  4. These are so pretty Laura! Love shooting with film...and agree it's so much fun that they always look differently. I have a roll I need to develop right now and possibly I'm bringing my camera to Paris later on this spring. :)

  5. Lovely photos - so soft, ephemeral, yet detailed. A treat to see real film!
