Still Hanging In There

April 18, 2013  •  Leave a Comment
I consider myself one of the lucky ones. I was fortunate enough to learn my craft by shooting a countless number of rolls of film. I was able to learn photography by forever staining my hands with the smell of developer, stop bath, and fixer. I had to think about if I was going to shoot Black & White, Color Negative or E6 (slide film), what ASA to use, and how many rolls to bring with me.
Now that digital is the new standard, I really do miss shooting film on a regular basis. I have tried to set a goal of shooting at least a roll of film a month, but in all honesty, I have not met that goal in over 6 or 7 months. It’s becoming more expensive and difficult in finding a good place for processing the film. As convenient as digital is, I really hope film photography never goes away. I also hope the new generation of photographers can somehow appreciate the magic moment that occurs when seeing an image appear for the first time from a blank piece of paper as it’s being processed, rather than having it instantly pop up on an electronic screen.
