An old Minolta Hi-Matic 7 camera comes out to play, I try my hand at some film photography. Equipped with a roll of Ilford black and white film, it was only when I got it developed I realised the light meter was faulty.

I found the challenge of shooting film both stressful and exciting. It’s surprising how reliant you become (in digital photography) on being able to review your shots via the LCD, this is where the stressful part came in – Ensuring I had selected the correct exposure settings before hitting the shutter, and then being confident I got the shot and didn’t have to adjust and take another. As my confidence grew, the stress was quickly drowned out by excitement – Counting down to development day and anticipating all the ‘awesome’ shots I captured.

Anyways, here is my first attempt at film photography. Included in these shots is some nice dust particles from my scanner and some weird development markings… lets just say… it give the photos more ‘character’.
