My First Roll is a series for film photographers to share the images from their first roll of film. Everyone starts shooting at a different time and for different reasons. Some shooters may have started shooting yesterday while others have started shooting decades ago. This series provides a glimpse into the humble beginnings of individual photographers, encouraging us to reflect on our earlier work to find beauty and appreciation in our inexperience and to understand how we got to where we our now and where we want to go in our photographic journey.
Cat Wood, of Atlanta, GA., shares her first roll of film from 2012 when she was just sixteen years old. In Cat’s submission email, she mentioned how nice it was to reflect on these images and see how far she has come. If these images are any indication of what her early work was like, then I highly recommend you go check out her latest at the links provided below.
