Question: How do I incorporate analogue in my life aside from shooting film? Answer: Photo Journalling.
When it comes to taking photos, I am not afraid to admit that my shots can be a hit or miss. Whether it’s over/under exposure, bad composition, or strangers ‘bombing’ my photos, there will always be photos that I’m just not happy with. I am my own worst critic. However, there are some photos that I am really proud of (although these usually happen by accident) and I keep these photos in my photo journals.
I pick my favourite photos, print them via a lab and display them in my photo journal with a short description and title. I also scribble down notes such as my analogue activities, the cameras and films I’ve been using, my latest analogue purchases and the outcomes of trying different experiments and tipsters.
I think that this is the perfect way to make your life a little more analogue! Photo journalling allows you to keep track of your shooting adventures in a fun and tangible way! Plus, being a crafty individual, I get to decorate and personalize the album. Gone are the boring photo albums where I merely just slot the photos into the plastic sleeves! Instead, I have a colorful and personalized way to store and display my favorite photos!
I'm Nick Page, a graphic designer based in the UK. After 20 years of working in advertising, I returned to film photography five years ago and found that the analogue life was just what I needed to get away from the "pixel perfect" images I deal with every day in my job.
Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

Hi, everyone! I'd like to share with you my 2014 summary on analogue photography. Some things I did were completely new, while some were my good old habits.

Well, let's see...
