While in Florida this past November, I took along a film camera.
Film, remember that old stuff.
Amidst the busy senior/family sessions of fall, I felt a tugging to slow down. Try something different.
Film, a lost art which is now making a comeback.
I loaded the film, grabbed my flipflops and a bag and set out exploring the beach.
It felt so great to shoot with a little more intention.
Make sure my settings are right.
Frame the shot in camera.
And hear the click of the shutter - much different from the sound of a digital camera.
I was taken back in time.
And I enjoyed every minute.
When I got home I had to research film labs, box it up and ship it off.
Now I am waiting (rather impatiently) for the scans to be emailed to me.
Did I remember how to shoot film?
Will the turn out?
I'll let you know.
I am packing both film and digital for my time in Florida this winter.
I am looking forward to slowing down and shooting for me. Seeing and capturing the beauty around me.
