Steph shoots film
Why do you shoot film, Steph?
I grew up shooting film with my dad, and my favorite thing to do was look through his contact sheets and slides, cutting out the images and making storybooks. There is a physical connection with the image. I’ve always liked the way photo paper feels in my hands and holding slides up to the light.
But beyond that, there are colors and textures with film that just cannot be duplicated digitally. There is something richer about the soft spots and deeper in the tones. I have to think harder about what I’m doing and the results are more rewarding.
