Can you believe it, this is actually the first roll of colour film I've ever shot?* We always used black and white film at school, and I got my first digital camera when I was pretty young (a cute little thing that didn't even use a memory card so if the batteries fell out, which they often did, I would lose all the pictures I had taken) so, although I'm sure I took a few colour pictures when I was younger, this is the first roll all of my own. And I shot it twice...
For three years this film had sat in my dad's old Olympus OM-10, the camera I had used and loved so much at school, and I had not actually taken a single photograph on it.
If it hadn't been so funny I would have been furious.
Luckily, I have a good sense of humour. So when we went back out to Minions for another walk around Bodmin Moor a few months ago I decided it might be time to finally, actually, use up this film. I took a lot of pictures (and there were a lot of jokes about hoping the film was wound on this time) and these are honestly the only ones that are any good, but I don't think that's too bad going. I'm pretty pleased with them.
I'm not crazy about the film I've used though, it's honestly just the only film I had. I got a whole lot of it with a Lomography camera a few years ago and I've still got a whole lot of it lying around, so I will use it up, but if anyone has any suggestions for a good colour film to use with the OM-10 I am all ears!
Hopefully this will mark a little bit of a return to film for me. Hopefully I will find a film I like better and get better at editing the results. Hopefully the films will all, always, be wound on.
EDIT: It isn't. I somehow forgot that I shot a few rolls with my Lomography camera years ago, even though I mention that camera later on in this post. Sorry! This is my first "proper" set of colour prints though. My Colorsplash camera is not exactly designed for serious photography.
