I’ve been seeing stuff here and there professing that today is “film day.”
I have been a photographer since before the advent of digital, when film was the only medium, so I have to chuckle just a little about this.
Back when I earned my degree in photography, film was all there was. 35mm, 2 1/4 square, 4×5 view camera format, and chromes…..or slides…or nothing now. Yes, digital was talked about, but it was one of those things that you thought….”I’ll believe it when I see it.”
My husband and I spent 17 years photographing weddings…..with film. We could not look at the back of the camera after each shot and say, “Oh, lets do that again…” Nope, it had to be right the first time. And, there is nothing like getting that roll of processed film back and seeing things that you actually forgot about during the crazy day of shooting a wedding! Gratifying doesn’t even begin to describe it.
I started my Cool Pets business shooting strictly black and white film. I swore, I would never go digital. Yet, now I struggle, not only to find the black and white film I love, but to get it processed in the traditional “dip and dunk” fashion. Since I started my Cool Pets business, I have seen several labs discontinue processing and printing black and white film.
Maybe I’m dating myself….showing my age. I don’t know…and frankly, I don’t care. Because, I know in my heart that I started at the beginning. I learned from the absolute best, and I cherish the days of film; not because they are something I “admire as a novelty,” but because they are something I lived through, LEARNED FROM, and I know, like the back of my hand.
Please visit my Cool Pets site. You’ll see only film images there.
But, for a peek….here are a few images of Charlie – such a cool guy – all in black and white film. My favorite…Fuji Neopan. :’(
