One of the things that I love about film is the unpredictability of how it might develop. I have the ability to frame a photograph exactly how I want it, to adjust the light, and press the shutter. After that, it's all out of my hands.
When a photograph develops funky, or doesn't quite come out looking right it's always little heartbreaking.
When a photograph comes out exactly the way you saw it through the view finder or even better, it's an exhilarating moment.
I've gone through a fair amount of instant film this year. Experiencing the highs of beautiful colours and contrast and the lows of broken battery charges and half developed blurs. These specific photographs are from a pack of Impossible Project film that with each exposure I fell in love with more and more. There's something about the warm, soft tones that capture glimpse of hazy, summer days and cool evenings.
