These shots were taken during a trip to Devon in August; on a warm, but drizzly evening which we spent going for a peaceful swim on one of our favourite beaches, which was completely empty (on account of the rain) and blissfully quiet. Or at least it was mostly peaceful, until you nearly swim into a jellyfish every ten minutes or so; an unfortunately typical feature of Devon’s beaches during warm summers.
I found that a lot of the shots from the trip came out with a similar (somewhat beautiful) hue, which could be down to the misty weather or perhaps the development of the film; if you have any ideas of why this is the case please let me know. I’ve also found that the place I’ve been getting my film developed at for the last couple of rolls tends to make the photos come out more contrasted than other places I’ve used, with a few on each roll actually ending up somewhat ruined because of it. As my editing skills aren’t really up to scratch enough to correct those photos, I think I’ll have to find a new place.
This post is the first in a three-part series of shots from this trip, all capturing snapshots of the time we spent either at the beach or in the sea itself.
Taken on Canon AE-1 Program, using Kodak Ektar 100 Film.
Let me know what you think!
