Shooting in Film - Film 1 January-February 2018

I remember using my parents point-and-shoot film camera when I was just a little kid, then we got a digital camera and the quirks of shooting on film disappeared. Then last summer I started looking for that camera, but turns out it got lost while we were moving. Then, my grandmother, who have upgraded her photography to a smart phone, happily handed me her old film camera, which amused me for a bit. However, I have been on the hunt for a decent film camera for quite a long time and finally decided to get this 35 mm Chinon CS with a 50 mm lens from eBay, which turned out in a good condition for a great price. 

Hence that's how I found myself in my local photography shop trying to learn how to put in a film into the camera. ( I still can't do it on my own ). 

About a month later, I finally finished shooting a set of film and proud to show you the results. I asked my local photography shop to put them onto a CD, so I did tiny exposure and contrast edits in Lightroom but apart from that I believe that I kept the original looks of all the photos.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I did...

The first photograph
Ohh, mirror mirror on the.... ceiling ?
to believe or not to believe || The sun shall rise again
"Amavi"
...to be that young again
Caffeinating the days
it was valentines day and they were chill about it
Moody days and big cups of coffee
Empty roads, still waiting for that bus...
yellow, old train, take me away
Dear old friend; Manchester
"bub"
Give me coffee shops and old friends and new friends and deep talks and lots of laughter
The sun came out, so did I
3 storey bookshop, a cafe on top, and some rose tea
"I'm in a New York state of mind"
I don't have a sense of direction, so let's just keep walking
...
They're building towers that are high enough to see the clouds
But it don't bother me
Ohh the crowd and the architecture
21 today
So let it snow...
The beast from the east paid us a visit
Oh, the weather outside is frightful ||  And since we've no place to go. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
