I saw a quote the other day that really resonated with me…this explains perfectly why I am moving farther away from digital…
“Shooting Digital is like marrying that sensible girl – the one that went to Wellesley, from a good family and wears well made comfortable shoes. Sure, in many respects she’ll make a good wife, but after a while the marriage might feel a little hollow. On the other hand, shooting film would be like marrying a flaky artist. She’s quirky and maddeningly disorganized. She can’t be trusted with a credit card or to pick the kids up from soccer practice on time. But she’s just a beautiful person inside and out and makes your heart sing”
Film forces you to slow down and makes you think because each missed calculation is costly. I’ve learned so much these past few months but mostly i’ve learned to trust myself. It took me 11 months to send in my first few rolls of film because I honestly thought I couldn’t do it – But that was me overthinking. I can do this, I will do this, I am doing this.
