My personal journey from film, to digital, and back again...
When I was in college learning photography from 2000-2004, there were no digital cameras just yet. I learned on film, in a darkroom, and that is where my roots are. After I graduated, I got a digital camera and began shooting. I still used film at times, but it soon became a thing of the past. As years went on I, had a slump in my creativity. I felt the agony of sitting behind a computer screen for hours editing my life away. This all changed when I realized that film photography had never really gone away, and in fact was making a resurgence in the industry.
I'm not going to sugar coat it, when I first began to relearn film in 2014, it was hard. Digital spoils you. I quickly realized there was so much I did not know. I dusted off my cameras and ordered some film. I started attending workshops, working with other film photographers, joined groups, and researched. But in the end, I just needed to shoot. My images sucked, big time. I made so many mistakes, but I LEARNED. I've used so many different types of cameras, film, and labs over the years. It has taken some time, but now I feel comfortably settled into what works best for me. So, do I still shoot digital? YES! Of course I do, all the time in fact, but I have found a balance, and I honestly just prefer film. I hope to see you there!
