Film Photography by Andile Buka

Andile Buka, a 24 year-old photographer, is also a self-taught artist living in Johannesburg, South Africa. He shoots on film only. "Film gives me an opportunity to be patient because I don’t have the instant gratification of digital photography. Film is slow, and precious. I cannot take a thousand photos and I often only take two or three. I appreciate the process of using film – it takes time, patience, and effort. Something that I hope and believe is reflected in my work." He says.

Andile loves to shoot everything around but "really enjoy capturing people in their spaces, be it in a taxi rank, cross road, mini bus, in a queue waiting for a 16 seater mini bus to take them to work. Shooting strangers is also my ongoing project. l pick up so much energy whenever I'm in these spaces and engaging with the people. Photography allows me to get a glimpse of people's emotions at that time or a slice piece into their world without them even knowing at times." He adds.

Analogue Me in Double Exposure

Analogue me no matter who you are. That could be my selfie portrait, or also me in someone's lens. Then put it in double exposure, you will see the wonderful result.

Andrea Addante - 5 things I love about Film

Andrea Addante is a 25 year-old Italian photographer, based-in Novara. He first got into analogue photography about five years ago "with a Ricoh KR-5 Super owned by my father. Since then, I never stopped shooting film."

Andrea loves to shoot everything around on film and today he would like to share with us main reasons that make him always love shooting film.

1. You never know, exactly,  which results will give the film. You cannot have any expectation.
And this has a kind of magic.

2. A film photograph is warm. It’s a storyteller, simply, and we preserve it with love.

3. Black and white with film isn’t comparable with digital black and white. Only with a good black and white film you can get deep blacks, and a bright white.

4. To get some good photographs - exactly as you thought - is a very big satisfaction. Analogue photography means patience, concentration and dedication.

5. Each camera, and lens, is different. Each kind of film is also different.  We have a world of choices. So analogue photography is never boring!

Portrait Film Photography by Ryan Francisco

Ryan Francisco, a twenty-five year old emerging photographer, was born in Houston, Texas. She shoots both film and digital and attended the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts majoring in dance and theatre. "I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Photocommunications from St. Edward’s University with Magna Cum Laude honors. In the last three years, I have been exploring a myriad of themes in photography: race, identity, and transitioning through self-portraits." She says.

Ryan is also an artist, she plans to continue working on her latest self-portrait series dealing with identity in the near future after returning from Spain to enhance my skills and portfolio. Her photos are mostly about portrait and one of her portrait collections is Marcus Pontello, name of her male model that she has just worked with in September.

Suncake Wang - 5 things I love about Film

Suncake Wang is a Taiwanese photographer. She loves to shoot everything on film, especially combined with multiple exposure photography. Her photos are mostly about people and nature.

Suncake who was featured once on Shooting Film would like to share main reasons that make her always love shooting film.

1. Every piece of each film has its own particle structure. Because of the environment, or the way of film shooting, and so on, bring up its special characteristic.

2. Films are always waiting for surprise like unwrapping the presents, even though it might be blank films.

3. Thanks to the pieces of films, let every chance of pressing the shutter be more attentive, carefully and slowly. Or to feel the things around adventurously and intensely before pressing the shutter.

4. Like the natural sense of double exposure.

5. Finally, no matter what kinds of media, so long as you love taking photos, expressing your soul, or storing wonderful moments, it is worth it to be able to press the shutter (and I just choose to present by films).
