Nisa Nur Kaydu - 5 things I love about Film

19-year-old Istanbul-based photographer Nisa Nur Kaydu first got into photography in 2012 with a Zenit 122 from uncle, and it has been always her passion since then.

Nisa shoots on film only. She was just joined with us last month in a feature and now coming back to share the reasons why she loves shooting film.

1. I love film because you can not see what you shot, and all you have to do is imagine how it could be if you had a chance to see like it is in digital.

2. It opens my mind and makes me dream more because I don't know what's gonna come around.

3. Every shot is too much precious and unique because I have limited shots.

4. I can play with the lights as I want and sometimes it makes me surprise when the leaks happen or different kinds of lighting.

5. I feel photographs much more in film way because there is nothing automatic and I try to feel them more and dream how it could be, so it becomes effort in my art.

Wiktor Franko - 5 things I love about Film

32-year-old Poland-based photographer Wiktor Franko who has been shooting with both film and digital, but mostly on medium formats, especially black and white films.

Wiktor was just featured on our website last month. He has a lot of reasons to love shooting film and would like to share with us 5 main things.

1. It's like reading books on paper, listening music on gramophone.

2. It's closer to humanity.

3. It's not perfect as digital, and in this non-perfection it's perfect.

4. I't much more natural, spiritual and like way of life.

Stefanie Walk - My Thoughts on Film Photography

31-year-old Berlin-based photographer and videographer Stefanie Walk has been photographing since she was a kid with both 35mm and medium formats, and had her work featuring on Shooting Film before.

Stefanie is now coming back to share more of her work in another project named My Thoughts on Film Photography.

Since I was a kid I'm running around with cameras, documenting the things and people that I care about. I had a phase where I only took atmospheric pictures. It was about colours and shapes in nature. I tried out all different sorts of 35mm and medium format film cameras and I do have my favourites now

In my mid twenties, pretty much around the end of my studies, my interest in the subjects massively changed and I started to take portraits of people. In Berlin you are surrounded by craziness and beauty.

More and more my art became not only focused on people but also political. Some of my close friends are having a hard time with their legal status in Europe. As a female artist I experienced a lot of prejudice against my gender.

My latest pictures are about identification and identity - seen through some sort of specific beauty filter in front of my eyes.

Since I'm also rooted in some independent music circles in Berlin I compose and shoot music videos and create artworks for records and posters. I would love to do that on film too, as I shoot almost all my pictures on film, but unfortunately it's a luxury, even Super 8 has almost disappeared and gotten a high cost adventure. I love Super 8 though, makes you consider very well how to spend those 3 minutes of film.

Those Were The Days

 Those were the days my friend
 We thought they'd never end
 We'd sing and dance forever and a day
 We'd live the life we choose
 We'd fight and never lose
 For we were young and sure to have our way.
 La la la la..."
