Making Photographs with Film Cameras

Zenza Bronica ETRS

I’ve been making photographs with a Zenza Bronica ETRS medium format camera, a Holga 120n (plastic) medium format camera and a very nice little Fujica ST705w 35mm camera. In that regard, I’m a lucky guy to have access to camera options when I decide to go out shooting film. I sometimes also bring along a Nikon D90 DSLR… and yes sometimes, just occasionally, it makes me feel a little dirty to be shooting megapixels.

Over recent years there has been a definite resurgence of shooting film – the Impossible Project (watch the cool footage) made the effort to relaunch polaroid film and Lomography came out with the Orca 110 Black and White film.

At the same time there appear to be a growing number of groups that organise and podcast about shooting analogue film – The Film Photography Project has to be right up there but I’d also advise anybody interested to follow The Art of Photography by Ted Forbes and Tips from the Top Floor by Chris Marquardt.

So, if you shoot film through your cameras then Long Live Film!
