Festive Shooting

It's been far too long since I stocked up on film properly, the last time was for our trip to Edinburgh Airport last Christmas. I say Edinburgh Airport because our flight to Paris was cancelled due to snow and we took the saddest bus trip back to the house (we made it in April finally). Since then I've only bought a handful of rolls at a time.

With Christmas offers floating around I decided to take advantage of a few starting with Lomography. Lomography were responsible for the batch of Ilford Delta 100 above with their Christmas offer of 23% off and free delivery on spends over £25. The thing with Lomography is that the more you spend, the more you save so I bought 5 x 35mm and 5 x 120mm. If I'm honest, I've never been a fan of the Lomography brand but this has opened my eyes to them quite a bit - there is no denying their support for film photography.

I also bought 5 x Kodak Portra 400 from a regular supplier on eBay. This wasn't an offer but the spending bug had caught on and it seems a good opportunity to try out this legendary film to capture those indoor, around the table moments with the Trip 35 in it's first social occasion with decent film - I can't wait to use it.

I would have liked to pick up some pack film for the Polaroid but I'm going to leave that until the new year now and when I get the bellows sorted out - they have a gapping hole in the bottom where the join on the bellows has dried out.

Holgarama posted a tweet asking if anyone needed parts for their Holga, they were cleaning out their parts bin so I managed to get a shutter release kit and wide angle lens for £12. I can't wait to get the Holga going again though it is unlikely to be over the festivities.

So that is what I'm shooting, what are you shooting over the festivities?

I hope everyone has a very merry Christmas!
