Exposed To Film is the work of amateur film photographer Sophie Gidley, a 22-year-old trainee Newspaper Journalist studying at Cardiff University.
I first became interested in shooting film after picking up a disposable camera and developing the prints in a black and white darkroom while spending a summer working at an American Summer Camp. Since then, I have taken up the hobby in between my university studies and work but still consider myself a novice. My first film camera purchase was a Holga K-200 NM Fisheye but I have now acquired an Olympus OM-10 and a Polaroid 600 extreme too.
As a beginner, I thought that Exposed To Film was the perfect excuse to dedicate more time to using my cameras and to learn more about film photography’s functions and techniques. It is also a good opportunity to engage with people like myself who want to start shooting film as well as local film photographers who don’t mind giving a helping hand with tips and advice along the way.
