Attempts at 35mm is a photography blog and a pet project that has kept me busy since 2017. It revolves around 35mm photography and has gained a steady following in just couple of years.
In the very beginning Attempts at 35mm was a simple photo journal, but as it started to gain more audience, it grew into a serious blog that now draws in 300—900 active daily readers. It has +5000 organic followers on Instagram and +1000 on Facebook.
The blog is very active with about 200 new articles articles being published per year. Usual topics are street photography, gear reviews and the theory of photography.
