{FILM} 35mm Style

Shooting in film is raw, creative, and gritty.

Each photograph is taken with precision, care, and intense focus.  There is no way to know that your photograph is exactly how you want it other than making sure you took correctly.  Are your lines straight?  Is your white balance correct?  Is your shutter speed fast enough?  Is your focal point on target?

There are no redo's and there is no immediate gratification.

I firmly believe every photographer must occasionally shoot in film to keep their skills sharp and to venture back into the creative arena of making every shot count.

About a month ago I wrote about a photo excursion I took where I shot in both film and digital.  Here are the film shots I took....  They are completely unedited except for my watermark.

The digital shots have much more clarity and are a better quality overall, however there is just something about the film shots... they have so much raw emotion.  I feel they capture the mood so much better... What are your thoughts?  Which do you like better?  The film shots or the digital ones. If you missed the link above, here is the link to the digital shots.

Capturing the Moment.

  1. I love shooting film and expirementing with different film types. It does take patience, but I love slowing down with it. Getting the film back from the developer is like opening a gift - I have no idea what I'm going to get but I'm sure it's going to be interesting and I can't wait to see. I love using Lightroom as my digial "darkroom". Really wonderful photos!

    1. Exactly Penny! Getting back developed film is truly like opening a gift. I kind of make a deal with myself that if I am shooting film, I don't take the same shot digital. I want my film shots to be unique and I want to wait until development to see them (even though I'm not patient lol)
