This is my blog where I take photos of stuff that interests me and put them on the web. The majority of my pictures are taken using film, most of which is 35mm and black and white. I like the documentary feel, the sense of structure over colour and the use of black – an often underestimated colour. I seem to have a monochrome brain. But there’s also colour film and some digital photography as well – that’s why it’s called Mostly Monochrome.
The majority of my equipment is second-hand. You get a much better model for your money and you can take risks with a £100 film SLR that you can’t take with a £10,000 DSLR. Like hanging it off the side of a tall building by the camera strap on a timer to see what you get, or taking it in the sea or just getting drunk with it. Of course you can’t instantly copy, edit and upload to social media with GPS coordinates but, have some patience, the photos will turn up eventually.
This isn’t me. He’s not even called Keith, but let’s use that name anyway. He’s a gentleman who was kind enough to stand back while I took photos. Here’s to Keiths everywhere.
