Silvia shoots film
Why do you shoot film, Silvia?
I love the definitiveness of film, how it manages to capture a moment in serendipity. I press the shutter, and I can relive the moment a second time once I get the developped film back. Film decelerates the way I take pictures. There is no checking the screen, there is no retaking. It values the moment for its uniqueness.
And I love the suspense of not knowing how the pictures turned out. Getting a developped film back, is a little bit like Christmas.
You can see more of Silvia's film shots in this set on Flickr.
