Swipe through for more high-speed action catured on #fujifilm by @tycobbphotography. We asked this talented film photographer why he loves to shoot film when covering motosport events like this. Ty shared, "I tend to shoot film alongside digital because I think it lends better to the creative process. As an action sport photographer (Motorsports), it's all too easy to find yourself holding down the shutter button and letting the digital motor drive do the work for you. Shooting film for motorsports on the other hand, it's a totally different animal. Knowing I'm limited to a single roll helps me think more about the final product. I'm extra careful about what I include and what I don't. And I don't own a pro-series film body. I'm shooting with a consumer based Canon Rebel S. It's a great camera, but it also has its limitations. Finding the limitations of film and the film body and creating images that move beyond those limitations is what I enjoy most about shooting film. It basically takes the idea of composing an image or covering a split second in time and turns that idea on its head. For me, it's more of 'what can't I get with film that I can try to make happen' instead of "well this isn't going to work" and just not trying altogether. At the end of the day I think shooting film in a fast paced sport pushes you out of your comfort zone. And I shoot Fuji film because I love it. My personal favorite is Fuji Provia, because of the rich colors and heavier contrast. It's perfect for bright metallic surfaces like cars and leaves shadows dark and distinct."
