I had been asked many times why I still use film for some of my projects. Sometime the fact that I’m an old dinosaur was implied, but is not just that. The fact is that I really like film photography for many reasons and not just for the better aesthetic for some situations. Here my main ten reasons, you can read just the titles or you can open the video below and hear the complete explanation I give: It’s simple Better learning curve More control Film means reality Visible without tools Variety of formats and cameras Aesthetic Value It’s a slow process It’s analogue! If you want to see a comparison between film and digital, you can read a couple of articles I wrote some time ago: Digital Fuji Acros vs Ilford FP4 Film Fuji Acros Digital vs Fuji Acros Film Until the next time!
We are all in the same situation, all round the world, we are stuck in our houses with a lot of time available. This is a great moment to improve ourselves and our skills. I see around me a lot of posting about cameras and photographic techniques so I decided to do something a little different. You can see here 10 COVID Compliant Exercises to Become a Better Photographer. The concept is easy, with what you have available in the tranquillity of your home or inside the border of your COVID jail, you can do this exercises to try new approaches, or relive forgotten ones, to photography. The results can be shared and discussed on the FaceBook Group I created just for this project. The class is available for free on YouTube! Watch the introduction here and follow me on YouTube for the exercises. . . See you in the FaceeBook project page!
