For the majority of the festival this year I decided to shoot almost exclusively on film. On Portra 160 specifically. I love the way it feels. It feels right. For the first two days I had my DSLR with me, which meant that I didn’t use any film, falling back onto instant results, some of which were fine, but some were just the same old, same old shots I really wanted to move slightly away from.
So after the first two days I left my DSLR at home. I did take the Ricoh GR later into the festival, but that was for another project on the way to and from Edinburgh.
I’ve used 11 rolls of film. Which isn’t that much really. But again, I have enjoyed it more. It just feels better to me. I’ve been looking forward to seeing what I have on there, and this morning I got the first seven rolls back from D.S. Colour Labs. Here are a few.
Part two should be up in a week or so, once I have the last of my films processed.
