5 Reasons I still shoot film

I’ve been shooting analog since I started taking photos back in the seventies but with a break when digital became mainstream. I started analog again a few years ago and all I can say is: analog has truly changed my photography and what I produce. I had only used 35mm before and I now use a medium format film camera. I also develop my own film and mostly work in black and white.

I’m also considering doing my own printing. Printing using the platinum-palladium methods. This enables total permanence and ease of working.

  • The pictures are permanent. Not just a lot of pixels on stored on a disk or cloud.
  • It’s more creative.
  • You take less photo’s. Film slows you down.
  • It looks better.
  • It’s different. Why follow the crowd?
