handmade developed film

Over the past couple of months, Daniel and I were taking photos around London with a lomo camera + Ilford 35mm black and white film. When it was time to develop the film, we used our connections through our friend Melanie K, and were able to use the Lux Darkroom where I got a private tutorial and I developed the film all on my own! I’m happy to say every photo turned out, but I’m only sharing a handful of them here. As you can see, the results are a bit dirty (literally) but I like the graininess and the imperfections. In the world of digital and instagram (and I confess I love instagram – my username is blackbootsandblackhearts), it’s refreshing to put a lot of work into the photographic process. It makes the end results that much more exciting.
