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. If you would like to share images from your first roll of film, send me an email.
Ellen Richardson from Melbourne, Australia shares her first roll of film taken on her Olympus AF-1 on Kodak Gold in July of 2013. It’s evident in these shots that Ellen truly understands the importance of light and how to use sharply lit environments effectively. A great first roll.
