Hello there friends!
This roll of film was the first time I’d ever shot this film.
Fuji Reala d 250, shot at 100.
Developed at 250.
I kindly got sent this roll to me free of charge by a friend I know through Instagram
(my favourite social media platform!)
During shooting this roll, I was mostly on a music collaboration trip. Working with Maltese singer songwriter Joe Roscoe.
I enjoyed working with Joe Roscoe, it was a great new experience for me and he worked perfectly on the song I had written!
You can listen to the single on Spotify now, just search for Mae Challis!
I was pretty caught up with working on the music in the very short time we were there for, so I don’t feel like I put as much thought into the shots as I could have. Which bothers me.
Though saying that, I still very much enjoyed snapping as I went along.
I don’t travel anywhere without my film camera nowadays
The interesting thing with this roll
is that naturally and subconsciously, I shoot with warm tones in mind.
My brain wants everything to look like Kodak Portra, even though I’m yet to shoot a roll myself.
In real life, this picture was a very warm scene.
Almost desert looking, yet the film came out very blue and cold.
The cold tones with what is actually a very warm photo interests me.
I can’t decide if it looks right or wrong.
I have to show you this couple of photos from the roll!
Before heading to Malta, I took a few shots on my Island, in a far away town, called Ramsey!
Ramsey has the Islands one and only pier, and a stunning beach.
I wish I remembered more that I have a wide lense and that I really should use it.
I really do love how these turned out.
Probably my favourite from the whole roll!
The way my film camera captures light and leaks always reminds me why I chose to pay to shoot with film instead of just using digital.
I don’t have all that much to say about this roll and these images.
I’m Not sure why, but I’ve struggled to write this blog.
I suppose I’m out of practice!
Either way, I hope you have enjoyed this short and sweet blog.
I recently got back my first roll of Kodak Ektar 100 and I’m really looking forward to writing about that!
Thanks for reading and sticking around!
