First Film...

The film was inside the camera ready to use....I was so excited but at the same time I knew it would be a learning curve.  As I walked around with the brownie it drew a lot of attention as people were passing by they were curious and asked in a polite way what was I doing? 

After taking the first photo I had to remind myself to hold my breath and hold the brownie against my body at waist level in order to keep the brownie still, little did I realise how hard it was to do such a simple task.

As I walked around wondering what to capture and decided that my first film would be focused on the open landscape.  

I even got up,early one morning at 4:15am to drive to Coniston Water to capture the dawn I wanted to see what I could do with the brownie.  Really you can capture anything with a brownie their is no restrictions. 

As I began to go through the film capturing beautiful landscapes, it was only when I was taking the finished spool out that I realised I wounded the film on the wrong way.  It was strange as most film cameras will not let that happen. 

It was hard to know what to do seeing it was wounded on the wrong way.  As I strongly felt I'd lost all the images, in the end I sent the film off to get developed really not sure what would happen or if I'd be embarrassed getting it back blank.  Anyway I had to see if there was anything worth saving from the actual film.

The very next day the company that was processing the film got in touch and said they were able to save some images....I was so happy at this news.

Below is two of the images taken with the first film in the brownie...you will be able to see camera shake but it's almost abstract.
