It’s funny how things come round! I first created this article along with another draft back in late March 2020 as a scratchpad for other (not too serious) ideas.
I was rolling around a few ideas for content and in a fit of imagining the clickbait-iest of clickbait topics, thought I’d have a go at religion.
Well, Dan K’s tweet unsurprisingly started ringing bells, so I decided to top and tail it, add a cover image and publish it…because why not, right? Thanks for the reminder that we can have a bit of fun with this 🙏
Speaking of which, it IS just a bit of fun, so please don’t read too much into it and if you have any of your own “commandments” to add, I encourage you to do so via the comments section below.
If there’s enough interest, I’ll go ahead and expand the list here with some less clickbaity descriptions. Maybe.
My ten commandments of film photography
Thou shalt have no other photography medium before film (after is ok)
Thou shalt not take the name of film in vain
Remember the archival day and to keep it holy
Honour thy film and thy camera
Thou shalt not kill an exposure
Thou shalt not commit brand adultery
Thou shalt not steal images
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy fellow photographer
Thou shalt not covet thy fellow photographer’s gear
Thou shal make unto thee many craven photographs
