Anonymous asked: As a photo enthusiast I can not in the world figure out why you would shoot on film? Can you explain some of the pros and cons to shooting on film vs. digitally? I am a big fan!
Film vs. Digital… The classic debate. There are a few reasons I like to shoot on film, mainly it’s for the colours, texture, and all around aesthetics of it. I also like the challenge and never knowing exactly how anything is going to turn out. With digital it’s easy to get trigger happy and for me that takes away a certain something from the photograph. When I’m shooting film I’ll usually only shoot one or two frames max for a photo and then move on. It’s also nice to be able to throw one small camera and lens into your bag rather than lugging around an entire backpack full of gear and accessories. Keep it simple!
Don’t get me wrong, digital is nice too and I’ll still work with it on occasion. A photo is a photo in the end and it doesn’t really matter what it’s shot on.
