A Year In Colour Film 2020 - Part I

March 02, 2021

 I will not forsake, the colours that you bring

But the nights you filled with fireworks

They left you with nothing

- Stuck In A Moment, U2

 

Getting to know, first-hand, the unique qualities of a variety of colour film types over the past few years has been a lot of fun.

I shoot a lot more colour film than I do black and white, so will share my favourites of 2020 in two parts (as I did last year). So please stay tuned for a follow-up post.

The majority of images shared here were captured on my Canon AE-1, with a 28mm or 50mm lens. I will indicate the film type below each image, and alternate camera, when used.

Here we go...
