2 years ago, I threw out digital photography for an entire month, including Instagram (gasp). Back then, I had disposable income and no expenses, so buying film was super easy. Now, I have a wife and bills to pay, however my photography solace is now found in film. (Since I do a lot more digital photography for work purposes). The thing I love about film is that no matter how much you controlled the details of an image, something unexpected will most likely happen to the image in development or in-camera. (Not always a great thing, but fun most of the time) It's relaxing to not worry about making the perfect photo, and it helps me be more careful about the shot I compose.
I usually use film during the summer because it's kind of like my break. This year, I've gotten into polaroids as well, not just 35mm. I'm addicted to polaroids at the detriment of my wallet. Fortunately, Fujifilm makes some cheap (relatively speaking) film for my Polaroid Colorpack II. I'm not going to be shooting film exclusively, but I will be doing it a lot, so I figured I would continue my old series. Last time was more run and gun film shooting (which is why I spent so much money), this time, I'm hoping to tone it down and put more care into each photo. We'll see what happens!
More to come!
