Film you ask?  Yes, film.  I have been shooting on film since dad gave me grandpa's old camera, I think I was about 14 or so.  Although I've gone through long spans without shooting film, I never really stopped using it despite embracing all that digital has to offer.  Recently I have navigated back to film for stills, and rely on digital almost exclusively for video and commercial work.  On my own, I prefer to shoot film.  It's more deliberate, I am more patient, more observant, more judicious, and I find myself observing my surroundings with a calmness and a purpose that I don't feel when firing away digitally.  Digital brings to me distraction.  I feel closer to the present when shooting film, deciding if and when to squeeze the shutter based upon what the moment brings, feeling satisfied with just a shot or two, and wondering how the mystery will later unfold.  Learn more about film at: https://www.filmshooterscollective.com/
