I recently attended a workshop for Fujifilm and saw some of the latest X-series cameras.
I’ve never photographed with a Fujifilm camera before but I always wanted to try them out. The moment I arrived I noticed a small detail that just warmed my heart so much.
They all looked like film cameras!
The first time I encountered photography was through film and that was one of the main reasons why I became a photographer. I just enjoyed developing the negatives, making test prints, creating the chemicals, just making work from scratch, you appreciated it more because you know how much time and work it took to get to that print. Once I graduated college, film photography materials were hard to come by. Unless you had your own personal darkroom, the truth was this:
Creating black and white photos is a thing of the past.
I don’t want it to be that way! I miss going to a darkroom and just creating images from scratch. Now with digital cameras showcasing all of the latest specs and quicker shutter speeds it easier for photographers to just take an image and send it off without editing. Which I will admit makes my job easy but I miss the days of film.
With all of the latest cameras and living in the digital photo age, is it okay to just forget about film?
Now it’s your turn: Is it a good thing or a bad thing? What do YOU think? I’d really like to know your thoughts on this! And if you liked this post, please remember to share it with your friends, family, and social media!
Til next time,
