New month calls for new series! Month on 35mm film is a monthly series, where I’ll be sharing my daily get up shot on film- digital photo diary meets analog photography! Bringing the old school back , exploring the aesthetics of default-filtered world and having fun with the not-so-curated/just-shoot concept. Here’s the first installment of the series, August on 35mm film.
It’s no secret that I love analog photography and I hoard film cameras like it’s nobody’s business.
I used to shoot a lot on film, then Instagram happened, then I re-discovered Polaroids, then I fell back in love with film, more Instagram… and now I’m here. I started shooting on film a lot this year, and I was thinking of ways to implement the analog into the digital.Around that time, I saw that Lizzy of Shot From The Street started her analog series- so I took it as a sign and finally pushed the idea! Apart from having a killer blog, make sure to tune into her weekly analog series- they’re fab!
August has been the absolute craziest month of the year so far, and I’m glad I got to document it all. When I finally finished my roll, I enthusiastically headed to the shop to only find out it would take a while (calm your horses there, Elif). A while became 3 weeks- hence the incredibly late introduction.
But, they say better late than never- so I really hope you’ll enjoy these series!
After squeezing 4 trips to August (and baring that ridiculously long developing time) I could vaguely remember what would come out of the roll- excitement! Kicking off the month in Spain, Alicante, which makes the best kind of backdrop to my life; all the palm trees… The week after that, I went on a work trip to Sweden, Malmö– good weather, super cool vibes, and more seaside… That followed a mini trip to the Netherlands, Maastricht, where I had the best student year of my life- so I had to visit and enjoy the finest Dutch cuisine in the meantime- BITTERBALLEN. And there it comes, Portugal. I only included the first two days- as the trip started at the end of August in Cascais, but will be sharing the rest as it was more like a September trip.
August on 35mm film has been pretty good IMHO, let’s see if September could up its game (hopefully without any delays this time).
So, what do you think of these new series? Also, do you still shoot on film? What camera do you use? Let me know down below your opinion on analog photography.
