I've been traveling so much this summer and my heart couldn't be any more full. From Iceland, to Africa, to my giant road trip through the USA and Canada, to photographing a wedding in Washington, to Portland, to Texas, and Tennessee...
I think I'd shoot film full-time if it weren't so damn expensive. I'll be traveling through Europe for a couple of weeks next month with my best travel gal, Eunice, and I think I'll be shooting primarily film while I'm there -- with an exception of video, of course. I'm really getting the hang of it, my latest roll proves just how gorgeous the colors of the Kodak Porta can be.
Come to think of it -- most of my favorite photographers primarily shoot film. I hold a weird desire to constantly fuel my chronic nostalgia -- film does the trick. The natural grain, contrasted shadows, and an organic preset that begs an image to rest in its authenticity.
It's interesting. After years of gawking at my favorite photographs and studying the work of my favorite photographers -- it's all film. I find the deepest of inspiration and feeling from such analog creations. I want to start transitioning my personal work to film full-time. Clients; if you're interested in have some film work done... let me know. I want a change.
Here is a list of some of my favorite film photographers:
