Giving Film Another Chance

Sure, you can knock the color off or set your camera to B do you really like wading through all of your digital files looking for the “good” ones? Shoot less and make them worth it.

Shooting digital because you got sick of wasting film? Think about dusting off the 35mm gear you haven’t sold and grab some new film.

This will in turn make your digital shots better; do you really like wading through all of your digital files looking for the “good” ones? Shoot less and make them worth it.
