March & April in film

Hello everyone!
Today I've decided to share some more of our film photos taken on our Canon a1 film camera. We're still learning how to use it, which is why some of the pictures are blurry/over exposed, too much light was let in through the lens, but I quite like the effect it gives on some of the photos. 
I've always said how much I love photography, but to me film is so much more special, not only do you have to be creative in how you decide to shoot the picture, you have a limited number of takes and once it's taken, there's no going back, I just think that whole aspect of it makes it much more interesting and special, photography is so overused in our culture today and it's always nice to see people still using film photography, and I love seeing people's different techniques and what they like to bring out in their pictures. (of course if you use a film camera please comment, we'd love to see you pictures!) 
Here is a collection of pictures we've taken over the past couple of weeks, the pictures were scanned so sorry again for the bad quality! Please let us know what you think :) Hope you all have a lovely week-end!

A Day Without Rain

Hello everyone!!
So the weather was nice so we decided to just hang around in town with our friend Kate. We made the most of the day since we will be revising all day for the next week! We also saw Divergent yesterday. I'm so happy with Shaileene Woodley & Theo James, they were great as Tris & Four. 
Holly & I have been thinking of doing Movie / Books review articles on the blog, what do you guys think? If you've been following us for a while, you'll know that we are both so fascinated by movies and books and we are also currently studying performing arts at university, so it's a great opportunity to share our thoughts on here. Let us know what you think :)

Ok, back to clothes. I bought this green leather top a while back, but every time I wanted to wear it the weather was terrible, I've just been waiting for the right time ! I love it so much.

Behind the lens

Hello everyone!

Today Holly & I had a photoshoot with our friend Nina who is such a talented photographer.
We were in a unused dance studio so it had quite an eerie feel to it, but the shoot went great! I'll post the pictures here soon, in the mean time here are some random shots we took on a break.

Stripes & Check


Hello everyone!
Sorry we haven't posted in ages, I posted a little update a couple of days ago, basically our camera wasn't reading any of my SD cards -.- It's all fixed now though so finally we can go out and start blogging again! We enjoy making these posts so much, it's so fun when you put music on and sing along and dance while taking the photos. Yesterday I realized how much I missed it & I think you can see it on our faces! So anyway, last week I picked up these stripey top from  Zara for 3 euros. (woohoo! Student budget!) & I'm so happy with it, I've been looking for a top like this to go with my dungarees and under a high waist-ed skirt so yay for that! I can't wait to get some new skirts for the summer though ( hopefully a midi skirt from asos ). Holly & I went for a similar look, I hope you guys like it :) Once again thank you for your comments, it really does make our day. Have a lovely w-e! xx
