I started my photography by shooting film before I was a teenager. The analog process continues to this day because there's something about its execution, its developments, and its aesthetic that captures the hearts of thousands of people across the globe. My affinity for film photography remains despite my heavily digital workflow. I even keep an "emergency" film camera in my car at all times.
But I still don't shoot film terribly often, so one 35mm roll of 36 exposures can last me an entire year. When I finally send a few rolls in to get developed it can be a bit of a surprise to see what comes back! The start of one roll might have been from the first snowfall the previous year, with a few summer beach frames mixed in, finished up with an autumn walk in the woods. It's always a bit of a gamble and always fun to finally scan into the computer.
I took my medium format Mamiya to Ireland this autumn, and for once I actually shot an entire roll within a few days. The film came back and absolutely captured the overcast historic feel that we had personally experienced walking the streets of Ennistimon and Galway. Perhaps my favorites are several shots from atop the Cliffs of Moher on a particularly windy day. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
