Shooting Tennis on Film

Recently I was very lucky to attend the Eastbourne tennis finals. Amongst other top athletes I got to see Novak Djokovic and Caroline Wozniacki play. I love sport and have always captured the moments digitally but I wanted to push myself and aimed to photograph the day on film.

My camera of choice was my Pentax Espio, it’s a ‘point and shoot’ camera which allowed me to not worry about changing settings and enjoy the tennis. I shot on Agfa 200 film, I chose a film with an ISO of 200 as it was a bright day and I was really interested to see how a budget film (£1!) reacted to high speed action. I am impressed with the results considering that the film and camera all together cost me £3.50!
