Lomocouple shoots film
Why do you shoot film, Guilardo and Ana?
We shoot film because it's the most original and natural form of photography.
Of course that the digital photography was a revolution for the media, and it is awesome to have the results instantly, in a lot of ways. But when you're shooting for the art of photography, the film in the unique result. The digital can simulate the film, but it's not the same thing.
We did shot a lot of digital photos before coming back to analog photography, and when we did, we fell in love for it again. The sensation of having that shot, at that specific time, with the specific camera, the specific lens, registered in that specific film, is unique. It's much more challenging. And when we got the results from the lab, and see that we got a great shot - what a sensation!
Shooting with film is an experience that everybody that really loves photography should have.
And please - HDR is not photography.
