Today’s film photography feature is a beautiful summer portrait series from Bertie Taylor. Bertie’s images read like poetry with their soft summer colors and interesting use of composition. Here is a bit more from Bertie about creating this series…

This series explores the feelings of disconnection and alienation within the throes of Summer. The majority of these were taken last summer. I came back from some travels and didn’t really know where I was heading generally. Whilst almost a state of inertia, I was introduced to shooting on film. I was instantly addicted and it became my main focus during this time and Shades of Summer was the result. I was given a Mamiya RZ67 by my father and started experimenting with shooting on expired film, getting my film developed in the only decent place in my town, Colour Stream in Brighton.
