Film Is Back
HERE 'S WHAT
Film photography has seen a resurgence in popularity over recent years, and for good reason. Shooting with film offers a unique and irreplaceable experience that simply can't be replicated by digital cameras. Film has a character and texture that digital simply can't match, and the process of shooting and developing your own film can be both rewarding and meditative. Plus, the element of surprise in not being able to see your shots until they're developed adds an element of excitement and anticipation that is hard to come by in the instant gratification of digital. So why not give film photography a try and see for yourself what all the fuss is about?
Film photography is a thrilling and immersive experience that involves capturing moments in time using a traditional film camera. As you look through the viewfinder and click the shutter, you are recording a scene onto a strip of light-sensitive film that is inside the camera. Once you've finished taking your shots, the film needs to be developed in a darkroom, a process that involves exposing the film to a series of chemicals that bring your images to life. Watching your images slowly appear on the paper in front of you is a magical moment, and the satisfaction of holding a physical print in your hands is unmatched. The process of film photography is a true art form that requires skill and patience, but the results are absolutely breathtaking.
