It’s a London thing

Written by Nasir Hamid on October 25th, 2011

This set of images are from a day trip to London that I made in September. All shots are from the same roll of film, processed and scanned by me.

[Tech info]: Expired Fuji NPH 400 (2007) in a Mamiya C330.

Man drinking an iced coffee from Starbucks

It's very rare for me to photograph someone on the street without asking them first but I really liked the bright colours in this scene and as I was walking past the man was so engrossed in his phone that I decided to grab the shot - of course that's when he looked up at me!

Man holding a Leica camera

This photographer was part of what seemed like a Leica user meet up in Soho but they all had M9's whereas this guy had a film Leica so of course he was the only one that I photographed.

This lady was having a smoke break outside the beauty salon that she worked in.

Wrestling masks

These masks remind me of Strong bad the wrestler:

Red and green buildings


Old shop exterior, London

I love the exterior of this shop and can only imagine what it's like inside.

Man smoking

Just chillin'.

Hats for sale

Hats, hats and more hats.

      Hey Andy, a handheld spot meter has been one of my best investments. I use an analogue Pentax Spotmeter V and I love it. There’s no need for a fancy digital one. Learning how to make accurate meter readings is an art in itself and one I am still constantly learning but it’s important to keep practicing. I’ve found Flickr and Google+ a great way to learn from other film photographers.

      Long live film 🙂
