January has been an interesting month. It's been a tough one but a few things have gotten me through it. Here are some of those things....

  1. My new favourite youtube channel is Plant Based Traveler. They post videos on film photography, meditation, and so much more. The quality and the editing is phenomenal - please check them out as they deserve so many more views than they get.
  2. Castle On The Hill | Ed Sheeran
  3. It was the 15th anniversary of A Walk To Remember! That seems insane to me... I was 10 when it came out! This movie means so much to me and it is one I think everyone should watch.
  4. Hi, I'm a virgin | Slam poem (Savannah Brown response)
  5. No Pressure | Elevation Youth
  6. SKAM. This Norwegian series is so incredibly brilliant. It's similar to the show Skins but is made for today's high schoolers. High school was 8(!!!) years ago for me now but the themes of high school will never change - love, friendship, drama.... it's always the same. The great thing about Skam is how they incorporate social media into the show. One of the great things about it is that the 'episodes' are posted in real time - for example, if a scene happens on Friday night, they post it on Friday night. Each episode varies in length and each season focuses on a different character. It's truly wonderful and I highly recommend watching it on a weekend where you have no plans because you are going to want to binge watch it (I watched it in 3 days - it only took that long because of work!). If you want to get it with English subtitles you can find it with a very simple google search
  7. Someday | Passenger
  8. FAT // A SLAM POEM + YOU'RE NOT FAT... YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL by partylikemaddie 
  9. The Sketchbook Soul by KickThePj
  10. Kodak are releasing a new Super 8 camera and I am so excited about it! I'm a bit late to the party but I can't wait to give it a go. I'm thinking that I will buy an old Super 8 camera instead of their new one (which isn't going to retail at over $700) but buy their film. The only thing that has put me off shooting Super 8 is how expensive it is to get it developed, but Kodak are now building the price of developing and scanning your footage into the price of the film when you purchase it which is amazing. I'm hoping that this will truly be a resurgence of film and lead to many more exciting things!

2017 Goals

Happy New Year everyone! Almost all of us set goals or new years resolutions when the calendar year begins. I am no different. Here's my list for two thousand and seventeen...

December | One Second Every Day

Another year over. It's kind of crazy to say that. I've been filming my everyday life for 11 months (I started in February) and it's weird to see life just go by in seconds. Some days feel long, other days I struggle to catch my breath. Am I happier than I was this time last year? I think so. I think that's the mark of a successful year, isn't it? To be happier at the end than you were 365 days ago.

I've loved this project and am going to continue doing it next year, however I'm not going to post the video until the end of 2017. I have a lot of goals and a lot of things planned and I really hope that is reflected in my video at the end of next year.

Disposable Diary #11: Tangalooma

As you may know in November I went to Tangalooma Island! It's only a two hour journey from where I live which made it the perfect island getaway for a couple of days. The only cameras I took were a Fujifilm disposable camera and my Instax Wide 300. I used up all the pictures on the disposable camera and was really happy with how they turned out.

Disposable Diary #10: 2016

I first started shooting this roll in January and didn't finish until mid-November. It features Sydney, Crystal Castle, and some babies (the more babies the better in my opinion).

Tom - my one and only brother. Happens to be my favourite.

Disposable Diary #9: My Christmas Party

Having disposable cameras at parties is one of the best things you can do. It's super fun and everyone looks awful in photos - what isn't to like? No matter how great or terrible we look, you can't deny that the photos are natural and that they capture the moment.

Warning: this post is image heavy but completely worth it.

Lomo'Instant Wide Take II

Here is part two of my first shots with the Lomo'Instant. I've definitely had a lot of dud shots with this camera but for the most part it is an enjoyable camera to work with. I rarely change up the lens or use the coloured gel filters, but maybe in future I will need to break those out.
