Even though I have achieved any sort of real improvement shooting 35mm film, I find that I’m still drawn to the medium and continue to shoot but have become incredibly lazy having the film developed. Spending time at home provided an opportunity to have those rolls developed and it resulted in a walk down memory lane.
The old rolls of Kodak colour in the bottom of a box for almost 20 years ago encouraged me to have them and others developed. As I dropped them off, I was informed the very old rolls may have or may not have any photos due to the age and I shouldn’t get my hopes up but I was pleasantly surprised. They’re not excellent but just ok.
The Black and White rolls weren’t nearly as old as the colour and looking through the negatives I find that it’s taken me about 2 years to shoot 24 exposures. This may be because I want to make each frame count, considering you only get one shot at it. There is no instant confirmation your photo was exposed or even framed properly.
Now the task is to scan and process the remaining negatives and remember to shoot and develop more often as there are many forgotten moments.
Until next time, Happy shooting
