Ever since I can remember I’ve always been a fan of taking photos. Phones have continued to be upgraded and with this, it has allowed the world to take more photos daily. The quality of these cameras has been forever increasing.
I didn’t have a camera for a long time, it wasn’t until I got my first iPhone that I really got started. It seemed that everyone I knew was using Instagram. Photography then took all different forms, whether it was pictures of food, selfies or holiday pictures.
Eventually, Instagram seemed to become more than things you wanted to show your friends, but into different artistic styles. Whole accounts dedicated to a theme or a style. This is when I started to explore different options on the App when it came to my personal photography.
I started using my iPhone, but then I found my mum’s old film camera. I started to use this and it was a thrill not knowing what you were going to receive. I would get 36 photos developed at one time. The photos themselves had a natural filter to them. To this day I still use my film camera as it always develops unique and intriguing photos.
