I spent the day yesterday walking around Valley Junction in Des Moines, an older part of town that used to be a train stop. This cute town is filled with mom and pop shops, retro stores and a camera store that sells film and film cameras!! The store owner couldn't believe that pro wedding photographers were getting back into shooting film. He said, 'I've been saying this for years.. I'd much rather shoot a wedding on film than digital'. And he went on to explain that it's because it makes him more intentional with his compositions and he doesn't have to spend 80 hours editing. I agreed and they were impressed with my 'street smarts' even though I have a college degree in photography, haha.
These older guys are way ahead of the times!! And so was my professor in college who was a film for life kind of guy. He wouldn't even touch a digital camera. If only I would have listened I could have been wayyy ahead of the times too! #filmforever
