OK so I like to follow the blogs of the kind people that follow this here blog and I Make Films by a lad called Gabe just happens to be one of those blogs... He has just made this post about shooting his first roll of film EVER... pretty crazy shit hey, judging by this statement and the fact that i remember when digital film hit the main stream when i was 16, circa 1998 I'm assuming Gabe here is in his early 20's just young enough for digital to be the norm when he got to camera buying age.
Gabe's post got me thinking back to my first roll of film ever? My first roll was probably some 35mm ilford B&W shot around the school yard for yr 8 art class, the details are hazy, but what i do remember clearly is my first photo I ever took. I was 9 years old and my mum was taking photos of my brother and i on our front porch when she asked me to take on of her and him, when the photos came back it was a beautiful photo three parts brick wall and only 1 part mother and brother - hahaha... I'm happy to report my aim has gotten a little better since then.
Would love to know what your first roll of film or photo was and while your pondering such great memories check out more of Gabe's photos above and here, pretty wonderful for his first roll!
