I went on to flickr and it was just thousands of pieces of shit, and I just couldn’t believe it. And it’s just all conventional, it’s all cliches, it’s just one visual convention after another.

Stephen Shore 

Yesterday in class my lecturer gave me a fantastic observation of my photography. He was talking about how photographers are always caught up in trends and that you can get stuck trying to shoot for them, to produce alike what is popular at the time. He said that I’d matured and grown into my own style since starting the course, and have moved past most of the cliche trends which are popularised through online sharing and media. This was a nice self realisation to come across, to realise that my want and need to shoot film isn’t from trying to fit some aesthetic niche anymore - filled with double exposures and light leaks like all my early flickr uploads were full of - but instead it’s grown out of such a respect and interest into the history and science of the medium that I can’t dissociate myself from anymore. I like being able to see this maturity and change in ethic, and that others can also observe this. 

I just ordered 10 rolls of 120 film for my Hasselblad, film is an expense that I will always be able to justify.
