Yesterday I uploaded the photo from Thursday 25 November 2010 on my Rangefinder Chronicles blog
The first photo uploaded was from 25 October 2010. Since then, for over a month I have taken a photograph on film every single day, only using Rangefinder Cameras, and have scanned and uploaded on for each day.
The project has sometimes been tough to keep to: I often work long hours as a barrister - some recent days the light is hardly there in London and goes altogether in the middle of the afternoon, there are days I don't want to take a camera, and days that I find it hard to find even a minute to take a photo. Also, when sometimes the only time to photograph is on the way to work, finding something you haven't already photographed can be hard.
Then there is the film. Sometimes I have the wrong film in the camera. A couple of films have been ruined in developing, but I have still had to upload a photo. And the scanning to take up many hours.
But despite this I'm glad to be doing the project, and I have continued to take a film photo every day since. Most times I look forward to stealing a few minutes, or if lucky an hour, just to do photography every day. I get excited every time I look at a new film I have developed, and remember what I was doing 2 weeks earlier. I enjoy using my rangefinders and experimenting with different lenses. I benefit from the discipline of logging which camera, lens and film I shoot with every day, so I can properly review the results later.
Most of all I am grateful I can think about, and do, photography every single day without having to be doing a specific project or travelling.
Please spare a moment to have a look at my daily blog. It's here:
Although I have about 2,500 visitors so far, only a few have become "followers". It would be great to have a few more. All you do is scroll down on the main screen and click follow. It costs you nothing and there is no spam.
Thanks for looking
