07 — Secret Obsession

Okay, so it’s not really a secret but it’s definitely an obsession. For the last 11 months Spadge has been working on an awesome 35mm camera project entitled “24-12/3“. Each month, with a budget of £10, she’s been finding a 35mm film camera & running as much film through it as she can.

From there she selects 3 of her favourite shots and uploads them along with a review to her blog. April will be her final month — I’ve got the inside scoop and can confirm she has just purchased her last camera. If you haven’t seen all the cameras she’s collected so far I’d really recommend checking them out.

Behind The Scenes

As you can see space was quite tight in Spadge's dressing room, I was pushed right up against the wardrobe to use my 50mm, but the perpective from the 50mm was perfect for this shot so didn't want to drop to my 28.
