Film.


It has been years since I last shot a 'serious' full roll of film. Not that my photographic work was ever really serious.
Last year I put my cameras into a box because it felt like they were staring at me and it was a constant (and not particularly nice) reminder that my inspiration had vacated the premises.
But I think it might be time to dig them out again very soon.   
And I'm looking forward to that day wholeheartedly.

  1. Lovely post - I am looking forward to hearing how you get along with rediscovering your camera!

    My most favourite memory of film was always filling up the last few frames with photos of my cats because I always wanted to get the film developed there and then!

  2. I haven't had much luck with film myself! I was shooting my second roll on my film camera and it got stuck halfway, mustn't have loaded it properly...

  3. Wow I haven't been here for a long long long time! I don't know why I haven't been here more often, it's the onyl blog that is not only purely looking on fashion or something but also on life overall :) I was going to make a change to that as well :) I didn't have inspiration for the whole year I spent in London. I could've documented so many moments but I just didn't feel like it. But it came back to me a few days ago! I'm sure it will come back to you very soon! Can I ask you how you did the menulinks? I mean how did you manage to position them. I've always been doing good with html but blogger is making it so complicated :D

    Lots of love Andrea

    1. Hello!
      I'm not really sure, they're just hyperlinked and spaced out with lots of ' & nbsp ; '

  4. Such a good image, I don't know when you took this picture, but sometimes our inspiration hides away, only to peek through from the most unexpected places. There have been days when I'd sit down to write and feel completely lost and uninspired. But I know it's worth writing something anyway, this is what everybody says. And they're right. Every time I reread pages I'd struggled with, I find something worth keeping: a few sentences, a paragraph, an idea, a conversation. Good-luck, and hopefully you'll be loading your camera soon. Have a lovely week.

  5. Oh, I wish I could shoot film again. It's just really sad that here in the Philippines, people aren't really into Film Photography so much, so we barely have much imports on film. Also, there aren't any more places to print them out. I hope to see your photos soon!

    Regards,

  8. We have a couple of rolls of film lying around and I think we even have a film camera which still works. I'd love to get it out and take some photos using film - I like that you have one shot, instead of being able to shoot and shoot and then delete what you don't like. That's why I like my instant camera so much; it puts pressure on you and forces you to really think and improve your skills.

    1. Definitely! It's so nice looking back through the roll too, reliving the memories over again <3

  9. Ah yes it's very frustrating when the inspiration dries up. I've learnt not to put pressure on myself though, if you enjoy something it will come naturally and sometimes when you least expect it!

  10. Sometimes we just can not get enough inspiration to start our work, a novel, a film or something else. I always keep my pen and book with me. I write the flash down when it comes.

  11. I love shooting in film but is really expensive to develop them in Singapore! x

    Happy vibes

  12. Oh, I really hope so! I've always enjoyed your photography work as you know. I think it's really beautiful! It is really frustrating when you can't seem to find your inspiration no matter what, it does happen to me quite often too! I find making a few notes tends to help, or little phrases that you've seen somewhere and find interesting. xxx

  14. Oh, I can't wait to see what you shoot. I'm sure it will be amazing. I wouldn't know where to start with a film camera - I barely know how to use my DSLR!
