This is the film photography follow up issue. How has it been – am I still a fan of analog photography? Inclusive a follow up on Colmar x Shayne Oliver ‘s collaboration.
Yes, I am I love with the soft tones and imperfections an analog set up offers you. And I also love the thrill you have while waiting to get your pictures processed. I also love how it slows down the process of creating an Image and the attention you put in every image.
Slowing down the whole image creation is not a bad thing at all. As I mentioned it can be really thrilling waiting on your results but while taking the pictures also the model has to slow down since you try a lot harder to find a right angle and pose. I also have to focus manually on my Canon AE-1 which freezes poses unintentionally even more until you finally push the trigger.
So I’m after all a real fan of Analog photography and I can recommend trying it. Getting to know analog camera and film photography better is like getting to the essence of photography itself. Today we all produce too much photo-data which ends up in stacks of hard disks – I recommend the less is more principle! Read more about my first impressions here. And it’s funny how many 36 pictures can feel while shooting film – compared to digital shooting where you shoot sometimes 1000 pictures with the same outcome.
