It's a black and white kinda month, with a little more Rolleiflex street photography this time! It's a tough camera to shoot in the fast paced environment of the street but the results are very interesting. I think I prefer shooting colour on the Rollei, despite having to pay a lot more for outsourcing dev and scan.
The Leica M7 wasn't fully serviced as I had paid for, so I've sent it back after they called me up to apologise for the lack of care. Once it's back, it shouldn't need a service for some years. It was nice to shoot a few rolls on my classic setup though.
It's been an interesting couple of weeks as I waited for the next NIDA course (which just started). I think I'm coming to grips with what this acting thing means in the grand scheme of things, and I guess I'm thinking that I may not have the capacity or willpower to go down the route of trying to work towards a career in it.
I love film photography and it already takes a lot of time alongside work. That being said, I still have eight weeks of this third course and will see it through. Being in the acting classes, working on characters, discovering their true motivations and how they operate has given me a little insight into what I should learn from my own true motivations and how I let them inform what I choose to do.

Pushed this next roll to ISO 1600. Not sure I got the developing right. Super contrasty with little shadow detail, but maybe that’s how it is.

Probably bad, rushed metering. Like the shot though.
