Is it true? I asked myself when I started using film. Being a cto of a startup and having ran my own internet company for over 13 years, technology has always been my forte.
So when I heard that more and more photographer recommend trying film for a change I was irked and curious. Why would doing less and having less advantage be an advantage.
Life as it seems flourished in constraints and restraints. With only 36 limited shots, the inability to preview what is taken, paying for each shot even if it’s a blank.
It’s as if you are walking on water with only the most important factors to focus on. The subject, the composition, the light. The very basic of photography being pushed to the edge as you consider whether the shot is worth taking.
The last time someone walked on water, the event was life changing.
