Over the past two weeks I have been shooting lots, and have managed to get the film developed and all scanned in at irregular intervals, whenever I got chance.
Again it is all still based upon my daughter, documenting her relationships with close family members and seeing how they differ. Does her condition stop her from expressing her feelings for others??… definitely not!
Grandparents, Rebecca Newell 2017 (shot on 35mm Fuji Superia 800 film using Nikon F90X)
Holly has a very special bond with her grandparents, along with myself she has lived with them for all of her life so far. She hasn’t gone a day yet without seeing them, their bond is unbreakable. This image was taken at my In-Laws on a Sunday get-together for dinner at their house.
Shopping trip, Rebecca Newell 2017 (shot on 35mm Fuji Superia 800 film using Nikon F90X)
I knew that in order to get these natural shots I needed to carry my camera everywhere we went, even if that mean to the supermarket or on a trip to the park. In this photo above my Mom and Holly pick out some flowers as a gift for someones birthday, they have a very close bond due to living together for all of Holly’s life. She has always had her Nan around, due to us never leaving home.
Singing to the music, Rebecca Newell 2017 (shot on 35mm Agfa Vista 200 film using Nikon F90X)
This image shows Holly and her Stepdad singing to music on the iPad in our bedroom. I was sat on the other side of the bed doing my make up in the natural sunlight, I grabbed for my camera which was on my side table and started snapping away. I love these natural emotions expressed within the images.
I went to Poundland to try out some film from there, for £1 a roll it was well worth the try. Although the images are lower in vibrancy I feel that they work really well and I continue to shoot more over the next coming weeks in order to capture a large catalogue of images, therefore giving me more choice for finals. Whilst the film is so cheap it seems silly not to… more work to follow soon!
