This is why I love analog photography. It is this kind of surprises that make it all worth while. You can probably try and do this in Photoshop, but it won’t be the same, because it won’t be a mistake, and it won’t be unexpected. I love surprises, and this is why I love analog photography.
My mom and I went to visit my grandma and my great aunt the other day. I decided to take my 35mm camera to take a few pictures of them. Instead I ended up using the whole roll of film (36 exposures)… I love these images though, so I guess it was worth it.
I took these pictures with a disposable camera a few days ago. It is the first roll of film I’ve shot in over three years. My friend Ali was leaving in a few hours so we went out for coffee and ice cream… a pretty awesome combination. I also took a couple of pictures at home to finish the roll…
I really miss shooting film, especially 4×5 and medium format. I never thought I would miss carrying all my equipment, setting up a shot, measuring the light, and waiting a few days until i got my film back from the lab to see how the images came out. Then I would make the contact prints and choose the best ones and print them big. Those were the good old days. It’s strange how things seemed much simpler back then.
