Derby on Film

Recently I decided to try my hand at shooting a few rolls at a ToRD match at the Bunker. The lighting setups are better suited to using strobes of some sort. I had a few rolls of Ilford Delta 3200 that I wanted to try out. I was rather surprised by the results. The action shots were blurry as one might expect when using a manual focus camera, but they were interesting.

I decided the best way to curate the images I did like was an instagram account. My main instagram account will continue to be a wide variety of images I capture, but this account will only be Roller Derby images taken with a film camera. I will be accepting contributions from other photographers if they wish to provide images but currently it will be only me posting.

The account is Derby On Film. There is not set schedule as to when images will be posted. It generally takes 2-3 weeks to get the film back and then I have to scan and curate the images.

I am open to making prints of any of my images but I have never done a print directly from film. That would be a fun experiment.
