Photos: Yashica T4 Heartburst
Every once in a while, the digital photography world starts making me totally nuts. When it does, I take refuge in the simplicity of film.
It reads differently.
It changes the feeling as well as the process.
It slows things down.
A photographer friend reminded me over lunch the other day that sometimes, when I’m sick of shooting a million tinny, empty frames, film just the thing to make me remember what I like about cameras. Capturing a moment or emotion or place in an image. Creating a physical record. Someone hands you negatives – a tangible object. A real thing. You can fuck it up. You can get it just right. But you’re going to have to wait to find out.
So just relax, ok?
