Just before Christmas last year, I bought an Olympus OM1 camera from the lovely folk at West Yorkshire Cameras (a wonderful place for all things film!). I wanted to experiment with it and use it for personal projects. But it has become much more than that. I've mentioned it before in a post, but it is actually making me think so much more about the way I'm shooting. It's making me slow down.
There's a quiet and stillness before I press the shutter. There's no checking the back of the camera to see if I like the look of the exposure. And I love the process of sending the film off to be developed, and then the scans and prints arriving a few days later, a welcome change to bills and statements!
I might start adding a little in our lifestyle work, but for now I'm just happy experimenting and exploring a different way of shooting.
