I’ve always had a love for film photography. I a time where digital has become increasingly popular with various apps to make your images look more sharp and stylish, it’s only over the last 12 months that the traditional form of 35mm films and polaroids have become the it thing. And don’t get me wrong, I’m as guilty as the next guy for putting my camera on the back burner and viewing everything through my phone screen.
Earlier this year I dug out my Nikon F50 and took it on my trip to Amsterdam with a couple of rolls of film. It only took a few exposures to make me realise how much I’d missed using it, which led me to carefully packing it and flying out to Spain with me for six weeks.
A few days ago I picked up the developed film and was so pleased with what came back. I shot on Fujifilm, which brought a beautiful grain and colour to each image. There were some surprises in there too, which is just another of the many things that I love about shooting on film. There’s no editing process, you can’t add a filter or get rid of blemishes. What you see is what you get, and I’m a big fan of that.
So, here’s Spain on film. I hope you love the images as much as I do.
