    A worthwhile read

    I am one of those photographers who has never stopped shooting film and still enjoy shooting it today, though right now I do not have the space to set my darkroom back up and have to resort to scanning the negatives. But that will be changing soon.

    I like the quote that reads “It’s not like a memory card,” says Mico Mazza, who shoots with film in Ontario, Canada. “You can’t shoot 2,000 photos and hope that a couple of them turn out. Because you have to think about every shot beforehand, it activates your creativity.” How very true.

    I look at my old Kodachromes and wish that I'd have waited a second more before I tripped the shutter or wish that I'd have chosen a faster shutter speed or loaded a different ISO film, but then I recall what is was like decades ago when I didn't have a dozen similar shots to choose from and each one cost $0.30, good or bad. Shooting mostly trains, there often wasn't much set up time and (as with today), you had to envision the image before the train arrived to fill the viewfinder.

    In any case, I treasure my Kodachromes and the memories associated with each. Most of what I shot is long gone today and I enjoy sharing them.

    I know exactly what you mean. I have 2 4" binders filled with nothing but negative sleeves, both 35mm negative and slides and 2¼". I love to just open them and look at nearly 50 years of film strips and slides.
