It goes without saying that we love photography, and we love film photography as much as we love digital. It’s a shame that we don’t experiment with film as much as we would like, but we take out the film cameras whenever we get a chance. Film photography adds extra challenges due to the limited shots, and the inability to view what you have just shot to check if you got the correct settings, focus points, etc. But it does force us to think more about what we’re shooting and how we shoot it. A lot of our favourite shots so far (stretching out to before Silver Duck started) were taken on film cameras. We’re not quite sure what happened to the double exposure shot as the camera is not capable of doing so without a lot of extra steps (which we definitely did not do), but we’re happy with how it came out, and we’ll call it a happy accident.
These photos were shot on a Canon AE-1 Program with a 50mm f1.8 lens, using Ilford HP5 Plus 400 ISO Black and White film, pushed to 1600 ISO. If you have questions regarding these shots, feel free to contact us.
