My entire website is actually an attempt to convert every photographer in the world into shooting film. My quest is to send-out subliminal messages every few days via the medium of WordPress…my plan is coming together nicely (rubs hands together, big booming Dr Evil laugh, etc, etc)
The most common argument I hear for nor getting down with celluloid is that shooting film is too expensive. It’s not expensive – I shot all of these images using a second-hand Olympus Mju-II compact loaded with Fuji Pro 400H film. The film cost £3.50 and it cost £7 to have it developed and scanned at Peak Imaging – that works-out at a mere £0.29 per shot. Twenty Nine Pence! What can you buy for that? A packet of Tesco own-brand instant noodles, that’s what. Nobody wants to sit and look at packets of noodles for very long, believe me.
Point and shoot – it’s that easy.
