Having decided I really love to shoot film more than anything else, I wanted a small pocketable camera I could carry easily when I was out and about with the Leica M6 I own.
A few images from the first two rolls of film shot on the Leica M6 this year.
I love shooting film but hate waiting to finish the film/getting the film back from the lab. The instant gratification I get from digital, spending time out pointing a camera at things and being able to see those results instantaneously is almost like a drug. I don't want to wait, we live in a world…

A few notes on the Olympus XA2
Had a wander round the Gloucester Quays area on Sunday.
I have a checkered past with film cameras. Since getting back into film a few years ago now I’ve bought and sold quite a few cameras that looking back I should have kept.

Had a few frames left at the end of a roll of Tri-X 400 I’d pushed to 1600 in the Leica M6 and as I was off to a car meeting last weekend thought I’d take it along to finish the roll off. I don’t normally shoot cars on black and white film, I leave…
A recent Twitter poll I put up quite surprised me with the results. I asked the question ‘how do you shoot your film’ with a choice of 3 answers
Loading a Leica M6, Leica style!
I've always been a fan of black and white photography
A year on film. Can I do it, well it depends on a few things...
Pushing Kodak Tri-X 400 to ISO1600
For some reason film photography draws me in and I've struggled to put my finger on it for quite some time now.
Adventures in film, so what's that all about then? Well, as much as I shoot digital I also have a love/hate relationship with film photography.
Last December (2018) we spent a few days in New York. I shot a few frames of Tri-X on my Nikon F3 at 1600ISO.
