Found On Film : Kodak Gold 200


There's something very special about shooting with a film camera.

In a world of instant everything it's lovely to slow down every once in a while; concentrate on what you're doing and go through the process patiently. I think that's what I love most; the care & attention needed to use film.
I've had my Canon AE-1 Program for four years now and I never get bored of finishing a roll, unwinding it and sending it off to be printed. It's exciting - are they going to come out well? In focus? Blank? Who knows! But that's all part of the fun (to me, anyway. do I just need to get out more?)

So a few weeks back, we headed to Bowness-on-Windermere and I decided to put some Kodak Gold 200 in my camera and just snap away (secretly hoping, of course, that they came out well as it's such a pretty place). Luckily, they did! They're nothing particularly fancy, but I'm happy with the results; the colours are so rich and unlike anything I'd get with a digital, without editing. 


Anyway. It was a really great day, it was cloudy at first but soon the sun came out (which helped with 200 ISO aspect, I would've preferred 400 ISO but you gotta work with what you've got!) We had a big pub lunch, followed by an off road hike, that led us to some beautiful scenes, and some sheep! Then we finished it all off with a hot chocolate... It was the perfect Sunday.

I hope you like the pictures! 

Have you ever used film? 
What's your favourite?

  4. I love your photos!! I just got back my second film roll from my Canon AE1 and it is SO exciting, I feel far more of a bond with my film photos than my digital ones!

  5. Film photography is brilliant! I have a Canon AE-1 and a Canon T90. There is so much more care taken when you shoot in film because you want to get it right first time and the process is even longer for me because I develop my own film in a darkroom - it's such a magical thing when you get to hold the photo in your hand after all that effort!

    Your photos turned out gorgeous <3

  9. These are really beautiful, there definitely is a quality with film that digital just can't capture. It's the same when you're filming!

  11. These are such lovely photos :) I've never shot with film before (so scary to have to wait for the results!) but yours have turned out beautifully! So much more of a sense of accomplishment than applying a filter. x

  13. I have a film camera, but it's quite bad, I'm looking for a canon, a nikon or a zenit. I'm an amateur photographer and I love those effects :D
