Italy was such an incredible experience. Whilst seeing the sights and taking in the surroundings I took a lot of photos on film which is my passion and career. We spent three weeks exploring the countryside. I’ve been to many amazing tropical places like Hawaii, Mauritius and Fiji and I haven’t seen water quite like what I witnessed in Italy. Arriving at the tail end of summer meant all of the locals were tanned and well rested from their holidays. We were a bit worried that it would be hard to get by with next to no Italian but Jen knows a bit of Spanish and apparently it’s quite similar to Italian so she was quite good at adjusting and making rudimentary small talk when it was needed. Tuscany was very special and so was Le Marche – where we drove to photograph a wedding. Italy is truly a must do location.
All photos here are film – I was able to develop and scan at home using the gear that I’ve accumulated over the past couple of years. This is my biggest film post to date and I’m excited to do more in the future. Cameras used are: Plaubel Makina 67, Pentax 67, Chamonix 8×10. I shot with Kodak Portra 160 and 800, and also Ektar 100. I’ve got some Velvia 50 slide film that I’ll add to this later but haven’t got the chemistry yet to process it. Should be here next week.
