The way a film camera works…
There’s something truly worthwhile in placing valuable film into a camera that adds to the whole experience of capturing a shot. There’s no denying film photos take a lot more time and work to produce.
The Value of a Photo
Thinking along the lines of the cost there is also the time and effort value that comes from photographing in film. As you cannot continually have your finger on the button and take hundreds of shots just to get that one perfect capture, and you cannot check each individual shot as you go along it gives more value and appreciation to when you do achieve that perfect shot.
The Colour & Quality
The thing with film is the camera tends to be more forgiving with focusing and exposure issues, sometimes even allowing ‘mistakes’ to create an extra authentic beauty. Often the grain and also the blending effects you can achieve with film is a look and feel which cannot be replicated with a digital camera which operates in a much more linear way.
Less is Sometimes More
The problem with digital is that with all the different ways of capturing on digital sometimes a photographer can lose his individual style and unique look. Film on the other hand retains its style with each capture, in addition any mistakes in film can actually come across to add more value and character to the print.
