I've been spending the last few nights going through my old battered Kinks negatives again for another project, so I haven't had a ton of time to spare to write, but thought I'd bring you these four failed photos of Ray and Dave Davies of the Kinks from the 1980s. I very SERIOUSLY don't miss the surprise of seeing these kinds of things returned from the film lab. The worst that happens when I shoot now? I fill up a memory card mid-show and have to spend a minute switching out to a new one.
Many, many years later, I can smile at these and almost call them art. Back then, I just swore.
Sprockets! This potentially-great beer spray shot was a little too blurry anyway, BUT DAMN.
Pros that were far more pro than me would custom-roll their own bulk film so this didn't happen every 36 shots in.
