Photo Essay

Film Snob

Yes I know in this day & age I should embrace all forms of photography, but I am not ashamed to stand up & say I am a film snob. I have been interested in photography for the past 30 years & have to say I am at my happiest when shooting film. I have a digital SLR & for some jobs it is the right tool, but I always come back to my beloved film cameras. To make it worse I only really shoot medium format & Polaroid peel apart. I am sure like me there have been times when you are fed up with photography, well when they hit me I will turn to my trusty Polaroid or agfa clack & my faith in photography will be instantly restored.

Do not get me wrong, there is a place for technology. The way I work now is to shoot colour transparency, scan it in & play with it in light room. I guess I just like the look & feel of film. So there you have it, as long as I can still get hold of film I will keep shooting it
