Birmingham Analogue Summer

Last year I decided to shoot a few local events using only 35mm film. In my humble opinion events can be fairly relaxed to photograph when compared to street and travel photography. People tend far more accepting of having cameras pointed at them. Since then I have started to pull my images together into a larger collection, I won't go into a huge amount of detail here, but it essentially focusses on free events throughout the year in Birmingham.

Some of them required a bit of forward planning while others happened completey by accident. That said, I think I have bitten off a little more that I can chew. Birmingham has such a huge, diverse array of free events throughout the year that I can hardly keep up.

While I have a little breather I thought I'd pull together some of the most recent images from events I have attended this summer..
