I had half a roll of Kodak Gold 200 left over from another shoot, so out I went on my lunch break with a Canon A-1 and 50mm f1.4 lens.
Thirteen frames left on the roll means thirteen shots. Here we go.
Oh, and autofocus is for tourists. 😉
To me, photography is about making connections. Connections to people. Connections to places. Connections to things.
This is why I love film—because it’s as much a connection to the process as it is the subject. Michael Bialecki, an American photographer, feels the same way when he says:
“I shoot differently when I am shooting film than when I am borrowing one my friend’s digital Leica cameras. It is hard to explain, but I guess I would say that I think different when I am shooting film. It slows me down and I am more aware of what I am doing.”
Check out “Documenting the Changes in Myanmar” over at the Leica Camera Blog for photos (shot on film) just as intoxicating as the one above.
