Hi Gang!

Welcome to 35mm Retro Photo, a blog following my adventures in analogue photography.

Let me get something off my chest right off the bat. Despite the title of the blog, I don’t exclusively shoot 35mm film. I also enjoy shooting medium format and occasionally instant stuff too. There… I said it. So why call the blog 35mm Retro Photo I hear you ask! Well… I’m not smart enough to come up with anything better.

Hey ho… moving on…

I met up recently with Peggy from Camera Go Camera, and she asked me if I had a blog. At the time I didn’t, I only had instagram, and even that was pretty new. Peggy’s question got me to thinking that it was about time I motivated myself to start blogging. I’ve written guest articles for 35mmc on a few occasions, and I’ve had the odd bit of written work published in the media in the past. I enjoy writing, creating, and photographing life as it happens with old cameras, so starting a blog seems a natural progression of that.

Still… blogs can be a little bit one directional. The writer and the reader maintaining their respective roles and ne’er the twain shall meet. I really hope things can be different here. My hope is that in sharing my adventures with you, you will share yours with me. I hope to meet at least a few strange others who share my love of film photography, be that in the real world or the virtual. I also hope that in writing a blog, I am inspired to experiment with my photography, to seek out new projects and experiences, and to collaborate with others in theirs. So if you’re sitting there reading this, and you have a project that you’d like to share with me – send me a message. Don’t wait because you’ll forget. Go… Send me a message now!

As for the rest, stick around and you’ll get to know me as we go on. I’m a pretty simple chap really.

Cheers.

John

    1. Thanks Colin! As you can see, the blogging has been put on the back burner this last few months. Hopefully I’ll be back and writing some new content soon. I have a couple of films to develop and write about in the coming months 👍
