Also, I’m a photographer. I’m not a professional or anything like that, but I shoot on 120 film using vintage cameras (ranging from 1914 to the 1960s). One thing I’ve noticed about Middle-earth is that it encompasses quite a variety of ecoregions. There’s everything from desert (Harad) to snowy (Northern Waste) to forests (all over) and everything in between.
Because of this, it’s pretty easy to take a photo of any sort of landscape and shoehorn it into the narrative. And that’s exactly what I’m doing with my own photographs for each post.
So every photo you see (unless I make a mention of it, or it’s obvious) has been taken by me using film of some kind and an antique camera. I hope you enjoy them well enough.
