A little bit about Film

I shoot film. I love it. However, if you ask me to point finger to whichever parameter that demonstrates film's superiority I'd be clueless, because for me, there's not a definite, quantifiable way to explain my preference for film. Art can't be measured. It just looks better. And that's all that matters.

Unlike most film shooters who started shooting long before the digital revolution and continued till today, I actually first experienced film after digital gained popularity for a decade and well into the mainstream. In fact, I learned all my basics in photography with digital cameras and they're really perfect for the job. Snap, review, adjust & learn, and snap again.

Film, though, is totally different. When I just got my Nikon FA and started shooting film it was a whole new experience. It changed the way I see things, and I learned to appreciate the art of photography because I learned to think, be patient and careful when taking a photograph. And the results are often rewarding.

Here, again, are some photos from my archive. I recently reformatted my computer and lost some of my processed photos, but luckily I have backup of the scans and I processed it according to my current taste.
