Street Photo Diary: Issue 28 - Film Edition

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted a Street Photo Diary, and for this issue, I’m doing things a little differently. I’ve been shooting some film recently, and I also found some undeveloped film that I shot back at the start of the year, which also turned out to be some street shots.

This collection then, is a combination of some colour film, in this case Kodak Colour Plus 200, and black and white film, Ilford XP2. The colour was shot on my Canon Eos 5, and the black and white was on a Yashica FXD. There appears to have been a little damage to the black and white film, and I’m not sure what exactly is the cause, but you can see some staining or reflection on the darker shots.

Shooting street photography on film is actually quite enjoyable and also liberating. It becomes a different experience, and I find myself just letting it happen, rather than worrying whether I got the shot or not. I have actually created a little video of shooting this set too, well, the colour part anyway, and you can find it on my YouTube channel, and I’ll also embed it below.
