Analog - working with film

I really enjoy using vintage cameras and film. I started with a brownie camera when I was 9 and now have a collection of old cameras including a treasured Hassleblad 550C, an Olympus XA, a russian lomo, plastic Holgas and Diana’s, a graflex twin lens reflex, some polaroids and a Rollei 35.

I like trying out difference films but my favourite is to put a roll of medium format film through a plastic camera like the Holga. A marriage made in heaven. Using film hones your photography skills and makes you much more selective about what you shoot. There is a joy in the waiting to see if things come out as expected. I also love the unexpected things that happen with light leaks…
