My Analogue Days: Photo Journalling

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!

Does anyone else keep photo journals?
