Ever since learning the ropes of the dark room I've had a heightened desire and appreciation of film photography. Although digital is fast, convenient and today's SLR quality is spectacular, there really is no substitute for the grain, texture & potential error in film. Since my studies, I've not really been able to get my hands on film other than my polaroid and some 35mm snaps, but it's always something I've spoken about picking back up. As the majority of work I've done in the past few years has been street photography, film hasn't factored in. Daniel and I always discussed how great it would be to throw some film into the mix but what with time and cost issues, it's still never transpired.
This month I met my desires face on as this photographer was shooting street style in Jardin de Tuileries. I stood back for a minute and observed. Although the process was slightly slower, he worked pretty swiftly - so much so that he left before I could get his card. If anyone knows what blog he runs or where to view his work I'd love to know.
