Photography by Angela McConnell
I have amazing friends, friends who notice how I light up when I talk to them about my photography and indulge me in long winded conversations about it. One of these beautiful people bought me a Diana Mini for my birthday last month (YAY!!)
Super amazing friend has a very generous Dad who donated me some of his expired film stock while we were in England so I could have a play with my new pressie (and also indulged me in long winded conversation about photography).
Here are some of the photos from my first film. We were travelling around England at the time in variable weather conditions and I was shooting on expired 400ISO black and white film. I really love how some of the really dark moody images turned out – beautiful grain and shadow. They may be a little too under exposed to some peoples tastes, but that is what I have tended to do right from the start with my digital photography (oh how I used to be told off by the technical types who were “mentoring” me!)
I played with quite a few multiple exposures too – of course I had no idea how they would turn out, but thought it would be fun to try.

I plan to do a couple of test shoots at some stage using triggers on the hot shoe for my studio strobes – could be fun to use for a couple of studio shoots and film developing costs here in Canada don’t appear to be too astronomical compared to when I last used film in NZ.
