Pinhole image Ilford XP4 film

Back in 2011 I wrote a blog post about how I didn’t really enjoy my pinhole camera and I wanted to stop using it, so I promptly did.

Last week, I found a handful of rolls of unprocessed film and sent them off for processing. I was reminded why shooting film is not as much fun as it might initially appear. First, it’s incredibly expensive at around £9 per roll to buy and process – then find you’ve shoved it through a crap pinhole camera and at best you have one photo that is not totally terrible.

Second because scanning and processing the images takes almost the entire rest of your life, and is mind numbingly boring.

Anyway, cool story etc. Pictures.
