Mary shoots film
Why do you shoot film, Mary?
I've only recently begun shooting film again after a few years of pretty much only using digital cameras. For me, rediscovering film hasn't changed too much the way I take pictures, it's been more about the excitement of the end result - the particular grain, depth of tone & hue of film. The whole process of shooting film is more deliberate & considered - starting with choosing the film, camera & lens and ending with the anticipation of waiting to see how a roll has turned out. But mostly I love that particular combination of perfection & imperfection when you get a magical result.
You can see more of Mary's photos on her Flickr and blog.
