Brian’s gotten a few new film cameras this past year, and brings at least one with us everywhere we go. At first I was pretty excited about him shooting in film, but quickly realized that I’ve grown too comfortable with the instant turnaround of iPhone and digital photos and I hate waiting so long to see the photos.
I didn’t realize how much goes into developing, processing, and digitizing film, but turns out it’s a pretty lengthy process. Brian’s still streamlining his workflow, so up until a few weeks ago, we had mass amounts of negatives that were basically useless to me. THEN we found a great scanner at Goodwill for $7.00 with a film scanning attachment, so he spent an entire weekend developing and scanning the rest of the film. It was so so so fun to look through all of our pictures from the summer, and even our vacation to Portland and San Francisco this spring!
He gave me the password to his Dropbox account this morning, and I got sucked into the black hole of film scans. I am in LOVE with his photos, and I just can’t stop looking at them! I totally understand now, why people love film so much more than digital photos. Film is so much more emotional and you feel like you know exactly what the photographer was seeing when they snapped the picture.
These are some of my favorites… totally untouched and raw. PDX+SFO+CHI
