Sula Journals: Nadia

The following few photos were shot on disposable film and are a small collection of memories and significant times with significant people.

I’ve felt extremely caught up lately in the amount of work I’ve been weighted down with. It’s hard to keep up as I’m sure we’ve all felt one way or another and disposable film for me, is quick and effortless to grab some snaps along the way. I’ve mainly only ever shot digital and disposable film but recently purchased a Nikon F90x which I’ll be experimenting on with manual film photography. I’m super scared but excited to grow as someone who takes photos purely to capture significant moments and has an intrigue in feminine x minimalist aesthetics.

If I’ve learnt anything recently it’s that you have to look after yourself. I’m not very good at it, but I’m getting better. Time management is a tedious thing; you can’t expect to have it together because other people do. Everyone will always only let you see what they choose — remember that it’s just the surface. If looking after yourself means failing a unit at uni because your mental health was declining, so be it. You can retake it. There are insufficient chances in this world; hand them over with discipline instead of comfort, take them with comfort and less discipline.
