But it is very very old.
I know it’s a contradiction in terms, since I shot this photo with my Digital Camera…..BUT, I did also shoot a photo with Polaroid (and you can see that on my facebook page profile, and while you’re there- Befriend me…. and film, yes F-I-L-M, it is not a four letter word…. Neither is F.I.N.D Film Is Not Dead…I got this T-shirt in Las Vegas, from the AMAZING photographer Jonathan Canlas, who shoots film only, yes, film only. Now, I hadn’t touched film since my second child was born almost 5 years ago….and I am not saying I am converting- BUT what I am saying is that I miss my Hasselblad, I miss working slowly, I miss caring about every frame because each one counts, I miss having to WAIT to see my images, I miss the magic of TIME, time, from what I experienced, to what I expect to what I actually get- sometimes there’s disappointment – wrong exposure, not as sharp as I wanted, not as great as I had hoped) and sometimes, sometimes there’s a photo, that I knew was IT when I clicked, but is so much better when printed. I miss all that. So I pulled out my camera, the Polaroid back, rolled a film (it’s like riding a bike, and much more exciting than changing a CF card- I don’t know exactly what it is, but there’s something about it…so here I am, playing with film…OK, not so fast- this photos was obviously created digitally, but I promise you, soon enough there will be some film photos, that funnily enough, will be scanned, on to a computer…and will end up being…. a digital file…..can you spell I.R.O.N.Y? I.Rolled.Old.Negatives and got a digital file anywaY ?
