Film Is Not Dead

Olympus OM1 / Olympus OM Zuiko 50mm f1.8 / Kodak TRI-X 400 / The FINDlab

At times, It feels like I’m the only guy out there shooting film, but sometimes I see reminders that I’m not alone. See more abstract street photography at Shuttering Thru Life.

    1. You should absolutely use it again!! If I had to guess, I would say you had a 50mm lens mounted on it? I love the photographer I become when I’m using my film cameras. I feel more engaged or connected to what I’m trying to capture. It’s hard to beat that timeless look of film, especially in black and white. If you should ever decide to give it a new home, please let me know!

      1. My first real 35mm was the Nikon FE2 and you are right about film cameras. There is something special about putting the film in, shooting then going into the dark room to see what comes out. Its funny because if you were to hand one to some younger folks they would be baffled. Back then you really had to know f stops, half stops, lighting, etc, etc. Not now. The cameras today and post production software does everything except take you out to dinner.
