When I got my Germany film wedding photography scans back from UK Film Lab, the excitement and nerves are, without doubt, EQUAL MEASURE. I’m literally staring at the email, watching the file download, trying not to panic. I shouldn’t be panicking; I know how to use my film cameras, I know what photos I’ve taken…but there’s still that tense moment, you know?
Of course, my beloved Mamiya RZ67 traveled to Bavaria in Germany with me. As if I was going to leave it behind for Barbara and Peter’s wedding?!? PFFFFFT dude, please. I only put it away when I finally ran out of film the following day (with a disappointed face). You ever whipped out a massive medium format camera in a cable car, 1,500m above sea level? You should, it’s freaking ACE. Anyway, I wanted to share a couple of shots from around Bavaria, in the (little) spare time I had. Barbara & Peter were happy to indulge my film wedding photography kick, so I pretty much, and quite literally, went to town. It rained (annoyingly) for the first 2 days, and then we had heavy cloudy skies. My last day? Beautiful sunshine, of course. If nothing else, it was good practice for shooting in variable weather. All of my “digital” clients will know that rain NEVER stops my play.
Anyway, in short, I heart film. I adore UK Film Lab. I’m insanely keen to head back into the main part of Europe for another wedding (or holiday, please). Until then, I’m going to keep looking at my film photography shots with a nostalgic face. And go order another stash of film like some kinda addict… 😉 Here’s a load of stuff I shot in between wedding stuffs. Keep an eye open for the full Bavarian wedding very soon.
