Howdy folks! I haven’t written a post in a little while – mainly because I haven’t been to any gigs recently (shoutout covid) but I’m on uni holidays right now so I’ve had a fair bit of time to myself. I was originally planning on going to Sydney to see family and hang out. Covid had other plans so that fell through. In the meantime, I’ve been hanging out with friends, going to the beach and keeping myself busy at home. I have been taking photos with my new camera (Olympus OM-2) and I thought I’d quickly share them.
If you’ve read any of my other posts on film photography, you’ll probably notice a bit of a theme. That is, the photos I take are mainly when I go to the beach. It feels natural for me to take photos here because there’s always some cool landscape to shoot or other beachy things. I’m not really the type of person to take my camera everywhere because I don’t think I have the eye for spotting locations and I don’t really know what I’m doing. I would like to try different kinds of photography in the future so watch this space.
Anyway – my dad, sister and I went to Bribie Island with the dogs a couple of weeks ago and I took some photos:
And then I also went to Burleigh Heads (one of my favourite beaches nearby). I didn’t get that many photos here because I ran out of film and wasn’t organised enough to bring another one. Whoopsies.
I quite like how they turned out! I still need to work on taking straight photos but that can always be adjusted. I still need to work on actually learning how to use it. I haven’t really been changing the aperture or anything so I definitely need to get on that. I’m not an expert and I don’t really plan on becoming one. I do it for fun, I like the photos that I take and that’s that. But there’s always room for improvement. That’s all for today folks but I’m in the middle of shooting a new roll of film so I’ll keep y’all posted.
