Today, we’re featuring a Spain travel story from photographer Mallory Brooks. Mallory captured the beautiful colors and details of Spanish architecture with one of our favorite point and shoot cameras. Here’s more from Mallory about her film journey…
I’m a self-taught street photographer living in Atlanta, Georgia who loves to travel. New to film photography, I was wanting to try something different after shooting digital for many years. I picked up an Olympus Stylus Zoom 140 point & shoot camera a couple months ago and took it with me on a trip to Spain, where I wandered the streets of Seville and Madrid. I wanted to capture the colorful Spanish landscape on film–this was the perfect country to shoot my first rolls. I love shooting the details of a city, recording everyday life and environments that often go unnoticed. In Spain, the details that mesmerized me the most were the gorgeous iron balconies filled with plants, the azulejos, and colorful buildings.
I shot a roll of Kodak Ektar 100 and ColorPlus and used Indie Film Lab for processing. I think these two films captured the colors I saw when I was shooting, and I love how vivid and saturated they are. I’m excited to continue experimenting with film photography and seeing where it takes me creatively.
