About film

I believe shooting film is the purist form of photographic artistry.  To me film is most forgiving to amateurs, and a strong ally to professionals.

Not to take away from the current technology of digital cameras.  But for people who love to take pictures,  try shooting with film a couple of times. ..before the media becomes extinct.

It’s a marvel to see what’s been captured on film whether intentional or not.  Simply because you have a moment to pause during the process and to see the things you might have overlooked.

And maybe find yourself looking at things differently as you head out for your next photo adventure.

One thought on “About film

  1. After all these years and I still find the whole process, from the taking to developing to the printing or scanning, to be magical. Film photography gives my life a way of slowing down and, somehow, a therapy.

    I totally agree with your words.
