I imagine that quite a few photographers have struggled during the pandemic to find motivation and opportunity to shoot.
So far this year I have managed 3 rolls which is pretty poor by my usual standard.
I was going through my film stash looking for something that may give me some motivation to get out and shoot.
I realised that I have quite a few rolls of Ektar and the day was quite bright so I loaded up my Mamiya and went out for a walk with my better half.
Even though it was a lovely day I struggled to really shoot anything that pleased me, there was one or two on the roll that were ok but overall this was a poor roll.
Somehow I only ended up with 13 frames, I did manage to accidentally fire off a frame while bending down but where the other one went is a mystery as I shot 15.
It must be old age as I missed focus on 3 frames and had a little camera shake both of which are unusual with the Mamiya, I can easily hand hold at 1/30th usually.
I developed the roll using the Tetenal C41 kit and scanned with the Epson v500
Well here is my 1st roll of 2021 in all its glory …
