Some Neat Old StuffMarch 14, 2023
I believe I made the transition to digital cameras in about 2006. Since then the cameras have become amazing tools, they resolve a myriad of issues, yet, in many ways, I do miss film. Being the dinosaur that I am, I appreciate the tactile sensation of film. The smell of the acetate when the film can is open, threading the film into the camera and advancing it before closing the camera back. Unlike digital cameras, when one can shoot almost endlessly at high frame rates, our 35mm cameras were limited to a maximum of 36 exposures before reloading film, the top frame rate was 3 per second and the cost per roll and developing was an important consideration. Thinking back, anticipation of seeing the images for the first time when they came back from the lab was palatable. Did I get the shot or miss it? My romantic digression is over. Enjoy the photos.
