Film photography has become quite popular in recent years, so popular than even obsolete products, new 35mm cameras, and even film factories are once again seeing the light. Personally, I have found film photography to be a great school for slowing my pace, and therapeutic. My main genre is street photography, and I have a tendency to not allow my digital camera to shoot anything but social scenes. With film photography, things can get more relaxed, even playful, and I allow myself to shoot whatever pleases me (including street photography). Here are various things I have discovered while shooting with film along with digital.
1. You Have To Trust Chemistry
The very fact of not being able to know whether the photograph you wanted was actually captured, is boldly terrifying. But that's what happens with film photography, so you need to trust that chemistry will do its job. After shooting a couple of rolls, this fear will slowly fade. Just try to keep yourself disciplined and avoid shooting things twice – once with film and twice with digital.
