Hiking in flip flops

If you thought you had been served with all my photos from Portugal, well you were wrong. I reserved this batch, from when my mom and I went hiking in flip flops along the cliffs of Ferragudo, in Algarve. I am so happy with the way the photos turned out, and with how the film renders so faithfully the beautiful colours of the sun setting over the Atlantic Ocean.

Come along !

    This is absolutely beautiful! I visited Portugal last December, but only managed to visit Lisbon, not around Algarve. Your pictures are so stunning, I was wondering if you have any tips for film? I haven’t shot with film before so I’m wondering what is a good place to start? Did you start with disposable cameras first? A

      Hey !! Oh thank you so much, I’m glad you like the photos !!
      I would really recommend you try film ! It’s the best way to learn photography :) I wouldn’t bother with disposable cameras though, there are no settings on them, o they won’t give you a real idea of exposure, and the quality is never great.
      You should check out eBay for Pentax K1000 and Canon AE-1 which are really good to start out, and you can fin inexpensive ones :)
      Then you can try shooting with affordable Kodak film to get used to the settings, the focus and then upgrade to better quality film which will render really nice colours :)
      Do drop me an email if you have any more question, I’d be happy to help! (I’m also on Instagram @thecroissantpostcards) -> thecroissantpostcards@gmail.com
