I love shooting digitally. I love the reliability and precision. I love that I can double check my settings and composition immediately after taking a photo. I love having the option to digitally retouch and I love love love how easy it is to share the work and get it to clients.
But, guys. Film.
It's magic. I learned how to shoot on a Minolta 35mm, black and white Ilford film. I feel alive in the darkroom. There is nothing like it. I feel more connected to the process, to the camera, and definitely more connected to the prints. Someday I'll invest in a Contax, but I don't think I'll ever stop shooting on my 1980's mass produced Minolta x-370 because it's given me images like these. The focus is soft. They are grainy and imperfect. Yet still for me, totally perfect.
